- This was a weird book! I realize I'm saying this about a Roald Dahl book, but this was strange even for him.
- I felt like there were two parts to the story, and they were disjointed.
- The story wasn't fun to read, and Gnome was really bored. She didn't want to finish, so I finished without her.
- Gnome didn't like that there weren't as many pictures in this book as there were in previous books.
- This is definitely my least favorite Dahl book, and readers could probably skip this one.
