Something Good by Robert Munsch


Something Good by Robert Munsch

When Tyya goes supermarket shopping with her father, her brother and her sister, mayhem ensues! All she wants to do is to buy something good, like a trolley full of ice cream or chocolate. But her father makes her promise not to move. She obeys! Because she isn't moving, the shop staff mistake her for a doll and put her on a shelf with a price sticker. Then, as customers try to buy her, she comes to life and scares the living daylights out of them. In the end, her father has to pay the amount on the price sticker to get her out and home...Every Thursday, the author does the family grocery shopping. This book is dedicated to those parents and kids go shopping together!


Michael Martchenko's illustrations ... are lively, simple and expressive. The characters practically jump off the page.
