Reviews - What do customers think about Something Good (Classic Munsch)?

This book is WAY TOO SMALL   Jan 7, 2009
It does not measure up to the description.... The measurement was 3" X 3"...the words were way too small for the size of this book. My daughter was not interested in reading these books at all and top it off, I bought 10 each of 3 series as stockings stuffer. What a waste of $$. Never again. this site needs to update it's description of the size. WORTHLESS!
The nieces liked it  Jul 27, 2008
Robert Munsch writes some weird books, that's for sure. I've read several of them, and the common thread is "this book is really over-the-top and weird".

Little kids think they're hysterical.

As an adult, I'm torn between "Yup, hysterically funny" and being a little concerned about some of the unfortunate implications of what's going on.

In this one, a little girl keeps trying to get her dad to get junk instead of food, and he tells her no, of course. He's so mad he tells her to stand still, and she obeys perfectly. Too perfectly - a stocker picks her up and puts her on the shelf with the dolls for $29.95!

Hilarity ensues, and eventually the man is forced to buy his own daughter... which, given that he's white and she's very biracial, does lead to me going "WTF?" slightly. Unfortunate implications, as I said. That's not what the story is saying, that's not what any little kid is going to get from it, there's nothing wrong with the story, it just weirds me out a little.

At any rate, both my nieces (5 and 2.5) found it really funny, and, as always, that's what matters. (They also like that her dad bought ONE bit of junk at the end for his daughter, a bag of colorful cereal. Aw.)
my favorite munsch book  Oct 14, 2003
yes this is my favorite munsch book of all time.....such a cute story...i love munsch....he's a genius just as seuss....the two have quite different styles of writing..but they get the point across...something good has always been my favorite though.... simple and fun =)
Something Good by Michael Martchenko  Dec 21, 2002
this book is funny and witty and my kids just loved it. it captured the torture kids go thru in the grocery store with their parents....esspecially when the parents are frustrated. One gets separated from dad becuz he fussed...and she did EXACTLY what he said. THEN the fun ensues with what happens after that. My children are teen age now and we still love this book.
Captain Underpants  May 21, 2002
I recomend you to buy any oF the captain underpants books beacause there funny and cool especiallY Harold & George there the funniest characters in all of the stories.You should buy this book beacause you would be laughing out of your seat.It's about these 2 boys in elementary school that never go to class and if they do go they would be sent back up to the office. you heard all the facts all you have to do is buy the book.
