Just to let you know this book is only 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches big. It does not state this fact in the description of the book. The first graders I had purchased the books for as rewards were not interested in the small books; they wanted the big books (regular sized paperbacks). I had purchased three other titles of Robert Munsch. (The Boy in the Drawer, Murmel Murmel Murmel, and The Dark) I did not like any of them. To me they were silly, but not funny. I read them to my son (first grader). He said they were okay. Something Good is about a girl who goes grocery shopping with her father; he is buying healthy food and she wants junk food. That is where the trouble starts. I had thought this was going to be like an easy reader chapter book since it is listed as 32 pages. However, it is a short book. Half of the pages are used for color illustrations; they do help the reader to see the humor in the story.

This book is a really great one! The preschool children that I read it to, can't get enough. Of course you have to use the right voice and actions. Love Robert Munsch books.....

I love books by Munsh and this one is no other. Just plain fun... and illustrations are also beautiful. The other childrens book authors I recommend is Silverstein and Nowicki.
