Hott Review:

When You Give an Imp a Penny is absolutely adorable!
What I liked: I really enjoyed the verse and the illustrations are amazing! I read it through three times myself and then shared it with the kids!
I think this book will be loved mostly by boys, it certainly reflects my boys impish nature and will have them laughing at the binds in which the little imps finds himself.
What I didn’t like: I can’t wait for more!
