What in the world is Robin going to do with the baby she finds in her sandbox?

“Murmel, murmel, murmel,” is all Robin hears coming from a hole in her sandbox. When she reaches down and out pops a baby, she finds herself in a real fix: who will take care of it? Robin’s too little! Off she goes, searching her neighborhood for someone who needs a baby. The woman with seventeen cats doesn’t want the baby. Nor does the grumpy man by the bus stop. It looks as though all hope is lost, until a friendly truck driver passes by. He offers to trade his truck for the baby—an exchange Robin can’t refuse.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not crazy about this one I got this for my 2yr. old Granddaughter and found much to my surprise that it was a of very odd book. It has a 4 year old finding a baby in a hole in the sand box and then going around town on her own trying to give it away. Finally she hands it over to a truck driver that just happens to want a baby. CREEPY!!!! Not what you might want to teach children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from classic munsch... ... before the same old plot scheme got tired. Excellent format for travel -- tiny enough to store in pants pocket for quick subway trips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Robert Munsch Rules! Get this book, you and your kids will love it. And if you don't have any children, get the book anyway and sneak it out to read it when all the other adults have left.
