Tyya is grocery shopping with her dad, but he's not letting her pick any of the good stuff like cookies, ice cream, or candies. When she holds still and is mistaken for the best, most lifelike doll in the supermarket, an argument at the till leads her dad to buy something good after all.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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.
