Weasels. What do they do all day? Well, little did you know but they are plotting world domination. This adventure story is full of mischief, failed attempts, and coffee as the weasels work toward the ultimate plan to take over the world.
A busy book with a lot to look at one each page, giving personalities to the various weasels using speech bubbles. All I have to say, don't give a weasel access to coffee. They have a habit of spilling it a lot, which may be why the world domination machine is broken. Who knows? This is a bit long for the younger readers if you read all the speech bubbles and there are definitely some asides that only an adult reader is really going to understand, but it is cute and nicely illustrated so I think the 5-8 year-olds will enjoy it greatly.
