I wrote a review for the Boy in the Drawer, also by Robert Munsch. Maybe I just do not like his style of writing. To me this book was silly, but was not funny. It does not state in the description that this book is only 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches big. The first graders I was purchasing the books for did not want the "small book"; they wanted the "big books" (regular sized paperbacks). This is a story about a girl who finds a baby in a hole and tries to give it away to different people, but nobody wants it. She ends up trading the baby to a truckdriver. He takes the baby and she takes the truck. I did like his story called Something Good. It is silly, funny and has a good lesson.

Title: Murmel, Murmel, Murmel Board Book Author: Robert Munsch Illustrator: Michael Martchenko Publisher: Annick Press Ltd Published: 8-19-2014 ISBN: 9781554516568 E-Book ASIN: B00BT3U4E4 Pages: 32 Genre: Children's Fiction Overall Rating: Reviewed For: NetGalley Reviewer: DelAnne Five year old Robin finds a baby in her sandbox one day and decides that she will find it a home. When I chose this book for review from NetGalley I thought it sounded adorable and it is funny and kind of quirky. It is told in an easy simple form so that small children can understand it with some lovely illustrations that mirror the story beautifully. Unfortunately after I read it through first I was reluctant to read it to any of my nieces or nephews. With the media full of the awful things that happen to small children and babies today I did not want to influence them to even think of emulating Robin. This is the first book by Robert Munsch that I have ever read. I like his writing style, but not the overall content of this particular book. That may not bother some, but if this is his usual subject, children placing themselves in parallel or neglected by no supervision, then I am afraid I shall not be reading any others. If I had not been so disturbed by the way it ended I would have given this book a five out of five, but because I was I am giving it a 3.5 .

I love Robert Munsch but this one is a little weird. A little girl finds a baby in a hole in her sand box who says "Murmel, Murmel, Murmel" she asks several people if they want the baby and eventually a truck driver wants it.

Robert Munsch is the author of a number of children books that I am familiar with. My favourite two titles of this author are probably ¿The Paper Bag Princes¿ and ¿Stephanie's Ponytail¿. I call ¿Murmel, Murmel, Murmel¿ a mystery novel for children. Very gripping. It will keep your child interested until the end. Another author of great children¿s books that I highly recommend is Boszenna Nowiki with her series of ¿Why Some Cats are Rascals¿
