I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Marni finds a tin when digging in their yard and when she opens it, she finds little wrapped up balls. But when she and her siblings open them up, they turn out to be bubbles in the form of the planets. These planets are alive and they take the children to faraway lands. All they have to do is say Snickety Dicket Doo! These children are inquisitive and often find themselves in scrapes but the ability to go home whenever they want usually helps to get them out of those scrapes.
Snicket Dickety Doo is a fun book to read and encourages children to use their imagination as well as teaching about different places around the world. The copy I received didn’t have pictures but I’m hoping the final copy does have them because they would add a lot to the text. I also suggest getting the book edited because there are a lot of punctuation errors.
