For Beatles or Lennon fans. The art is easily identifiable as John's, and the sense of humor in some of the drawings offer a window into him as a father.

got the book because of the drawing and the colors.. once upon an elephant is cute... also laughed at an elephant forgetting, a bird bath and a horse laughing! how i'd love to draw like that and teach my kids :)

Beatles fans will enjoy sharing this little picture book filled with John Lennon's simplistic and quirky illustrations with their children. My favorite portion was the forward, written by Yoko Ono, describing the origin of the drawings and what a playful attentive father he was to their son Sean.
