Reviews

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.
