Rated 3 out of 5 by from Munsch is great, this paperback edition not so much I can't possibly give a Munsch book less than a 3 but I was very disappointed in this 'Classic Munsch' edition. I've read this story many times. The last page was blank; instead of describing the last scene: totally white. And I've read the last page many times in other editions from the library, and end on tumblebooks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from funny,easy to read by both kids and parents,great humor Robert Munsch is a funny author with an easy style for the kids to master. If they learn to read one book they can read them all. Parents and teachers won't mind re-reading it over and over again.The illustrations are great, and the humor is funny.This author goes crazy with a sleepwalking dad. Great for teaching prediction,and easy to read to a class. The words are on one page and the illustrations are on the back so you don't have to read sideways(an important detail for tired teachers).He has over twenty books for sale and each one is better than the last.Check his picture on the back cover.He's a wild and crazy guy!
