Item description for Purple, Green and Yellow (Classic Munsch) by Robert Munsch & Helene Desputeaux...
Overview When Brigid asks for colored markers, she assures her mother that she will use them responsibly, but one day the temptation becomes too great
This is a favorite from Bob Munsch's live storytelling sessions.
Brigid is on the trail of the ultimate felt marker. At first, she's satisfied to be drawing wonderful pictures. But soon she must have the markers that wash off with water. Then she needs the markers that smell.
But she's happiest when she gets the super-indelible-never-comes-off-till-you're-dead markers. She draws brighter-than-real lemons and roses and then goes too far: Brigid draws on herself. Nothing will remove the color, so Brigid reaches deep into the box of markers, finds the people-colored marker, and covers up all the other colors. She looks better than before, too good to be true.
And Brigid is certain that no one will find out her secret. Especially since her father awakes from a nap and looks in the mirror. He looks a bit too good to be true too...

Deceptively Tiny Jan 15, 2009
This is such a fabulous story--I never connected that for the $1.50 price I paid for this version I would get a book that measures 3.25" x 3.25". SO disappointing. How hilarious to look and relook and recheck my packaging because the packaging slip said it was included. It was TAPED to a piece of cardboard. NEXT TIME this site, please include a measurement of mini-books AND link to a series of mini books. If size was listed and a link to other Lilliputian-sized books I would have gladly ordered more to even everything out.
Shocked at size Oct 30, 2008
My daughter is a school teacher and she buys this book at a regular book store for a lot of her friends with kids. I noticed it was only $1.50 on this site so I bought several copies to give to needy children for Christmas. I was shocked when the book came and it was only about 3" x 3". I just looked at the current listing and it says the dimensions are 9.9" x 4.9". That is not the size of the book I received. This is the first time I have had this happen with this site.
Robert Munsch is the best again! Oct 10, 2008
Purple Green and Yellow is on my top 5 list of favorite Robert Munsch books. His cleverness is almost unsurpassed.
Not for 2 year olds Sep 28, 2008
My 2 year old loves this book, but I should never have read it to her. It has encouraged her to color her fingernails and fingers. She doesn't understand the point at the end of the story because she's too young. I also don't like that Brigid lacks manners, but used this book as a teaching tool about how we need to say "please" and "thank you" and not be demanding. Although I like most Munsch books some aren't appropriate for really young children.
Warning! Book is the size of a cookie Aug 13, 2008
Maybe I missed it somewhere in the description, but I didn't realize this was a minibook about the size of a chocolate chip cookie. The story is too juvenile for my niece who can read and is into anything small and the small print, lots of text and tiny pictures don't work for my four year old.
