    This book is a re-release for toddlers presented as a board book

    This book is a re-release for toddlers presented as a board book.  Some of the text and pictures have been updated but the hilarious message is still the same and ready to be unpacked to a new group of lucky kids.

    Jason hears funny noises in the middle of the night and when he gets up to investigate he finds his dad snoring....laying on top of the fridge.  He shouts, "Papa wake up!" and that's when the fun begins.  Jason goes back to bed only to be woken up time and time again finding his dad in very strange places indeed - like the top of his car and even outside in 50 below zero weather.  Jason has a huge responsibility rescuing his dad over and over and trying to keep him safe.  He finally uses his brain and concocts a plan to keep his dad safe by tethering him in one spot where he can't escape and keep walking off. You will love the ending, a special little twist that only Robert Munsch can pull off....let's just sum it up by saying...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

    This delightful zany book will have your kids laughing out loud.  The re-vamped illustrations are classic and Michael Marchenko is a storyteller in himself with what he produces visually.  I know your child will be asking for this often. You will hear the shout coming from the bedroom..."Papa wake up and read me that story one more time!"

    50 Below Zero

    Itâ¿¿s too ridiculous. I canâ¿¿t imagine how people sleepwalk. What a strange father in this story. He always shows up in the unusual place. When I read the sentence,â¿ Itâ¿¿s 50 below zero outside.â¿ I think,â¿ Wow! This dad can go for a competition or break the worldâ¿¿s record. The boy canâ¿¿t put up with his father. But he sleepwalks at last, too. I think itâ¿¿s an interesting ending. I enjoy this book. Itâ¿¿s funny and I never read this kind of story before. The writer is great because he makes up a story of a bad habit
