Format: Paperback
My family enjoys all the books by Robert Munsch. This one is too subtle and complex for the very young children. Yes, sowing kindness will wipe away our troubles more than anger ever will, my children are too young to get this and they miss the blatant humour in many of the other Munsch books. They don't understand why the boy was there in the first place, they didn't get the book at all. Better for children who love Munsch but are seven or older.

I have used this book with children in social skills groups to teach them how being mean to other kids can hurt them. Even though the kids found some of the book funny, and loved the illustrations, they didn't entirely understand the point at first. The book is rather complex, and most young children won't get the underlying message without some adult coaching to help them understand it. I do believe the book is worth it, though, because what the author is trying to teach is so important.

I love Robert Munsch! We have a collection of his books and ad to them occasionally. This was a good story but the ad was very misleading. Was not prepared for the size of this book. It is a MINI book. It was not clearly listed as such! Had I know I probably would have chosen another book. This is bound to get lost in my large household and it is difficult to read to more than one child at a time.

My 5-year-old picked this book up at the library and thoroughly enjoyed it. He found it "very funny."
The story is about a little girl who finds an ornery little boy in her sock drawer. The little boys goes about the house creating messes that she has to clean up. It's a very cute, imaginative story.
Although the reading level is listed as 9-12, younger kids will enjoy the story, too.

It was the tiniest book I have ever received. LOL Definitely not the full-sized, all-time favorite book I read as a kid. Oddly enough, I was annoyed at how small it was, but my daughter LOVES it. She puts it in her pocket and carries it around. Bigger isn't always better, folks. ;)

I read this wonderful book called The Boy in the Drawer. It starts with a girl whose name is Shelley. One day Shelley went into her room and there were socks on the floor, socks on the bed, socks on the dresser, socks on the walls and socks everywhere. Shelley heard a loud yell,`'BE QUIET!'' So, very careful Shelley looked into the drawer. A small boy was sitting there reading a book. Shelly ran downstairs to her mom and told her that a little boy was in her room. Her mom told her to tell the little boy to go. But the problem was that the little boy didn't want to leave. So Shelly's mom had to kiss the little boy so he could leave.
The message of this book is that parent's should listen to what their children are saying. Why I say that is because in the book, the mom doesn't listed to what Shelly is trying to say to her.She just tells her to go to her room. Shelly comes twice to tell her that there's a little boy in her room but her mom tells her the same thing go back and tell the little boy to go away.
I think that this book was OK because the mom made the mess and sometimes she made the girl pick it up. But anyway, I still want you to read this book I think you would like it.

I've been reading Robert Munsch books for 20 years. I have read them to neices, nephews, kids I've mentored, neighbor kids, kids at church, airports, & doctors offices and any place you find a kid. Kids love them as they have a great story, good rhythm and they are funny. "The Boy in the Drawer" is about a young girl who goes into her room and finds a boy in her drawer, reading a book." "Annikins" are approx 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" so they fit in a birthday card or in your purse. You can also buy the books in 8" x 8" glossey cardboard cover or in hardback. In my opinion, any Robert Munsch books are the best. He has around 30+ titles.

Definitely not a story for younger ones. Over-promoted &/or marketed. We viewed the 'Bunch of Munsch' DVD which included this story & it gave my 5 year old nightmares, & left my 4 yr old unhappy. Both were confused. Only one of the stories was really appreciated by the kids. A friend who watched with us summed it up: "Weird. Why?" In summary, Beware: some Munsch are better than others, skip the 'Bunch.'
