It was an okay read. I thought Hector compiled a good list about happiness on his travels. He did not have one specifically about health which I would have included. I have had a cold all weekend and I'm cranky - when I'm healthy I'm much happier.
The book is written in a childlike tone but don't be fooled - it's not one to read aloud to children. Hector is an adult and engages in adult behavior on his quest around the world for happiness.
I think this book is a bit of a rip-off at a list price of $14. I bought it at ALA as part of deal in the Penguin booth. For $2.50 it was a break from Swedish mysteries and more serious subjects. If someone wants my copy let me know and I'll pass it along.
