Dry ? Couldn't finish it? Oh no those previous comments don't apply to me. I found this to be a wonderful book and can't wait till my granddaughter is old enough for me to read it to her soon.

Robbins can be a terrific writer AND tell a terrific story: see "Another Roadside Attraction" and "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues", and bits and pieces of the novels since those. I have become increasingly disenchanted with him as he keeps repeating himself and tripping over his own cleverness. This book is Robbins at his most precious, and that is a teeth-clenching level for me; couldn't finish it.

Very promising title but the book is dry and boring. Tom Robbins has a great writing style but even the style cannot compensate for the empty content of this book.

If you don't already know, I am a huge Tom Robbins fan. This is his latest work and it may seem like a departure from his earlier stuff but I assure you this is classic Robbins! As far as a children's book about beer goes you couldn't ask for a better tour guide than Mr. Robbins. A great read!
