Thanks so much to Cynthia McDermott, Professor at Antioch University in Los Angeles, for providing this review! I was not familiar with this book before she contacted me, but I'm glad that has been corrected!

|His world changes when the Araboolies move in next door.
They have strange animals who live in the house, they have a huge bed that the
entire multicolored family sleeps in outside and they play and laugh.
Unfortunately for General Pinch and his wife, the Araboolies do not speak
English (actually we do not know what they speak).|
