Murmel, Murmel, Murmel by Robert Munsch


Murmel, Murmel, Murmel by Robert Munsch

What in the world is Robin going to do with the baby she finds in her sandbox? 'Murmel, murmel, murmel,' is all Robin hears coming from a hole in her sandbox. When she reaches down and out pops a baby, she finds herself in a real fix: who will take care of it? Robin's too little! Off she goes, searching her neighbourhood for someone who needs a baby. The woman with seventeen cats doesn't want the baby. Nor does the grumpy man by the bus stop. It looks as though all hope is lost, until a friendly truck driver passes by. He offers to trade his truck for the baby - an exchange Robin can't refuse. Young children everywhere will delight in discovering this Robert Munsch classic, his eighth in board book format, with simplified text.
