When Davy's father reads him a story later, it is a story about someone who asked for three wishes. Davy asks his dad to read it again and his dad says no because he has a lot to do..
Finally, on his birthday, his present is that his grandparents are coming to stay and they get to do everything he wants to do. Read him stories when he wants, teach him to play games, and generally make him the focus of all their attention.
The overall impression I got of this book is that Davy is spoiled and demands to be the center of attention, and his family is bending over backwards to give him the attention he demands. Davy is not happy with getting a story read just once at bedtime, for example, and pouts when he doesn't get his way. His family even brings his grandparents in to cater to his every whim.
My overall impression is that this book teaches children to beg and whine and that they are supposed to be the center of attention. I'm sure that is not how it is meant, but that is the tone that came across when I read it.
