I didn't realize that this was a mini size book.
Debra Williamson
I teach 1st grade, and I cannot use this book to share with my students during reading time because it's too small to see.
Naomi J. Seymour
I love Robert Munsch and this is one of my favorites.

I love this story but when ordered did not realize this book was a microversion. Very disappointed with that. There was nothing in the ad that stated it was a mini version of the book. When I was gettng ready to throw out the box is when I found the book. It should be boldy stated that this a mini version of the book!!!!

Format: Library Binding
Purple Green and Yellow takes us all back to the days of coloring and expressing our creativity in both acceptable and unacceptable ways. When Brigid exhausts her acceptable forms of free expression and ventures out to the wild side, the reader holds his/her breath while saying "Do it! Do it!' Although the readers knows her becoming invisible then re-coloring herself with the flesh colored marker are fanciful, it is delightful to consider and wonder - "What if?' As with all of Munsch's books the language is engaging and unforgettable. Who does not feel right there when they read and "cow plops that smell exactly like cow plops?" When I read this book aloud to my students they wail with laughter during the story and are often heard using his language structures in conversations and in their own written stroies. Robert Munsch is a master storyteller. This book happens to be one of my favorites because I never had the courage to color on the walls, etc. as a child but probably ached to do so. Through Brigid, Robert Munsch afforded me that opportunity. I would highly recommend his books. They are delightful and best enjoyed when read aloud because of his gift with language and dialogue.

Who were these published for? They are too small for the young children the styories are written for. I am very disappointed because this is one of my favorite books.

Format: Paperback
This story begins with young Brigid's desire to have markers like all of her friends. Her anxious mother frets that Brigid will color on walls, floors, and herself. Brigid's plea is victorious when she makes her point for water color markers.
"They wash off with just water...Get me some of those." She gets a box of 500 water color markers. Brigid soon grows bored and makes her case for getting markers that smell, and then finally a box of "super-indelible-never-come-off-till-you're-dead-and-maybe-even-later colouring markers." Then, bored with paper, she starts coloring her fingernails....Brigid is a colorful character who slips into coloring on herself, as many young children do. Adults may fret that this book may encourage children to draw on themselves, but this story is funny because of the unreal solution to the very real problem of children coloring on themselves. The children that I have read this to seem to get that this is the real point to this book. This book is for every child who has ever preferred markers to crayons or colored pencils, and then wandered away from their original purpose.

I was purchasing this book as a gift. When I received it, it was a mini book. The ad said paperback, which was fine. I would not have ordered it and certainly not paid $4 shipping for a 2 x 2 book.

Please read that this book is a micro-version of the original. I did not read that, I just saw where it said paperback and was very disappointed when it came as a gift for my daughter. Someday she might like the fact that it is a tiny version of a really good book. But today was not that day.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle on August 4, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was surprised to open the box and find a 2 inch square book, instead of a full size paperback. I just checked the Amazon description section and it incorrectly says the book measures 9.9 x 4.9 x .4 inches. Evidently, "Annikins" in the item title means it's a mini book format but I was unfamiliar with this terminology. Know what you're getting!

Format: Paperback
I am a prekindergarten teacher. This book is a favorite of all of my students both boys and girls. Although the main character does lack manners when dealing with her mother, the story is very amusing and keeps children on the edge of their seat. My students giggle and luahg throughout the story. At the end of the story, they recognize the importance of following certain rules that their parents have set for them.
