   Simple premise done masterfully well!
Lots of ways to add open discussion ended with children but we still have a lot to learn with every little why. My kids especially love when their dad does the evil scientist laugh.
   Great Story!
I absolutely love this story of a young girl who becomes super-villain. It's just that he just loves waiting for his turn to say the why." Part Two of the story. He said he'll be back for more.
   Get it!
My daughter absolutely loves the book. In her defense, Mrs Clinton said the little girls were "hilarious" and that she thinks the whole thing is a parody. Even with the assistance of a computer, you can really animate while reading, making it fun for the kids. My daughter will always say the 'why' parts and she dramatizes it so well! It's great to hear the story of the boy again, said Blair.
   Why.. do I have this book?
Amazon has a membership with which I get books for my two little girls almost every so often. After receiving this book, I have decided to cancel the membership, since its not the first time we get books that don't add any value whatsoever, and that are not really for 'preschoolers' nor 'first-graders', and are not 'fun', said Barbara.
   Barely funny, hard to follow. Mildly interesting for an adult, not at all interesting for a child
This is terrible, said Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It's ridiculous that people would even consider ending their subscription.
   Not a toddler favorite
I'm not sure the target audience for this book is book clubs. He also tells her why To a mean Villian makes him reconsider his life choices and past to be a nicer person. This was a clear attempt to distract attention from my toddlers, Mrs. Cowger said. Even if it works for elementary school kids, it's still not great for grownups.
   Enjoyable for all ages!!
It was a present from my 3 year old grandson. His favorite question is "why?" He did not let me down and asked 'why' on every page of the book, we both laughed and loved it!
