Andrew's mother and father always ask very clearly if Andrew needs to go pee, and his answer is always, "No, no, no, no." Unfortunately, that answer never seems to last long!

Product Details

Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K Andrew's mother and father are careful to ask him beforehand, ``Andrew, do you have to go pee?'' Andrew always answers, ``No, no, no.'' Any parent can guess the rest. As soon as he's firmly belted in the car or immobilized in a snowsuit , Andrew bellows ``I have to go!'' His family is annoyed, but kind, about the inconvenience, and Andrew surprises everyone by getting up at night to go to the bathroom with grandpa and not wetting his bed again that evening. The cartoon characters are expressive and nice. A potty-trained child from three to five will enjoy the humor in this preschool vignette, but like a family photo album, this subject has limited appeal. This is an attractive, well-designed, sturdy package, but an ever-so-additional choice. Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Public Library, Alexandria, Va.
Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.


Preschoolers who are in the throes of toilet training, or who have just attained this milestone, will appreciate Andrew's predicament and Munsch's gentle exaggeration. (Canadian Materials)

Martchenko's exaggerated illustrations are a splendid complement to Munsch's direct and pleasantly repetitive narration. The author's popularity is already widely established, and this title should do well both in libraries and bookstores serving children of preschool and primary grades. (Library Journal) --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story April 9 2007
Munsch did great job of making normal life hysterical. It was like reading my sister's life back to her. The repeated 'no,no,no' response from Andrew is easy for kids to pick up and 'read' along. It's scary how true this story is. Every parents has lived this nightmare. It's funny when it's not happening to you...

3.0 out of 5 stars A sizing warning would make sense Feb. 8 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is a good one. The only issue I had was that the size of the book is the mini Annikin Series: which I did not realize until it came.

Upon closer look the About the Annikin Series: is there but below the fol on most browsers.

perhaps some sort of graphic attached to the cover preview (mini book or something like that)

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I paid for Feb. 2 2012
I only purchased this book to get the total to 25$ for free shipping. Some reviews complained about the size of the book, however the listing clearly shows the size. I will mail it to my nephew, and am pleased it is so tiny. The story is not what I expected but cute just the same.

4.0 out of 5 stars A favorite book on the go March 16 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I remember this book from childhood. I love having it in ebook form because when a moment presents to read a book with one of my children, such as waiting in line, or on a trip... it's ready to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Board Book Nov. 8 2013
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
I knew that this book was going to be small and that is why I got it (this book is about a quarter the size of a normal children's book). Perfect for a new generation's to learn to love Robert Munsch in a book their own size!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very small Aug. 29 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Story is good and funny - but just had not realized just how small the book was going to be when it arrived. It gets lost in the bookshelf.

I love this book and always have, but beware! It's mini. Unfortunately, I returned mine and ordered some larger sized Robert Munsch books instead.

2.0 out of 5 stars All right
Much smaller book than I was expecting but a good one for the car. Not that the Grandchildren ride in my car often so will get read less.

Thanks anyway

4.0 out of 5 stars Munsch is always good
I enjoy this board book version of one of Munsch's classics. My son never really took to it though. But, really, it's had to go wrong with Robert Munsch.
