Bob Munsch has written yet another light hearted story to which every child can relate and most importantly, laugh about. With his masterful repetion and the fact that he seems to somehow truly know what it's like to be a kid, children will undoubtedly be glued to this story from beginning to end. My kindergarten class cheers each time they see me bring this book out.
The new book has delicate pastel coloring with a great deal of movement, charm, character and expression. The 1996 edition is fine, but if you look inside you will find the illustrations are heavy, dense and awfully muddy. The new book's typeface is very delicate and lively and I know this sounds sort of goofy, but it really does make the book much more charming and silly. It is a very pretty and light book to hold and examine. Jule Ann is remarkably expressive and displays a great deal of character as the story unfolds.
Because this is a short tale, with repeating themes that build to a funny ending, it really is the kind of story book that needs to be engaging, and it is made or broken by the illustrations and the simple repeating phrases.
I can see this as the type of book that starts out as a silly read-to and then becomes one of a child's first read-myself books. A very happy find.
Please note that I received a free electronic copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a frank review.
A great read for elementary school kids, a book I love to read as I watch the kids react, and to top it all off, the "wonders of soap" appears at the end to help solve the mud puddle problem. Classic Munsch!

They need to warn you that this is only 3" by 3". It's a cute story but because it is so little the print and pictures are small. That doesn't do the pictures justice. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Desert Person
