Book Description

June 21 2012 Munsch for Kids

A brand-new look for a classic story.

Originally published in 1979, this was the first of Robert Munsch's oral stories to be turned into a book. Since then, it has made countless children (and adults) all around the world laugh out loud.

When Jule Ann goes outside, a mud puddle jumps on her and gets her dirty all over. No sooner does her mother scrub her clean than she ventures out again, only to be pounced upon by the pesky mud puddle. The cycle continues until finally Jule Ann gets the better of the mud puddle with cheerful ingenuity and two bars of smelly yellow soap.

Lively, clever artwork by award-winning illustrator Dusan Petricic gives this bestselling picture book a fresh and energetic look that will charm a new generation of young readers.

Product Description

From Booklist

Ages 4^-7. Fresh artwork brightens the story of Jule Ann, who is attacked by a mud puddle every time she steps outdoors. Suomalainen also illustrated the 1982 edition, but his new pictures feature a more fluid, energetic style and full color on every page, rather than on alternate spreads. The growing popularity of Munsch's picture books and this edition's more appealing illustrations make this a likely choice for larger collections. Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.


Whether you are a long-time fan of the incredible Robert Munsch or not, you will surely enjoy this clever tale. (Provo Library Children's Book Review 2013-02-15)

As always, a delightful Robert Munsch story. (Katherine Watmough Resource Links 2012-12-00)

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous Mud! June 15 2000
When Jule Anne walks out her door one day she finds a pesky mud puddle just waiting to jump on her. And if you think that's bad, just wait until you see the other tricks that puddle plays on her. But after being scrubbed clean over and over, Jule Anne comes up with a trick of her own to play on the unsuspecting mud puddle.
Bob Munsch has written yet another light hearted story to which every child can relate and most importantly, laugh about. With his masterful repetion and the fact that he seems to somehow truly know what it's like to be a kid, children will undoubtedly be glued to this story from beginning to end. My kindergarten class cheers each time they see me bring this book out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest book ever Jan. 19 2006
My Class at the daycare love this one. we made up game and a craft to go with mud puddle, all the children love to take part in any munsch book. We have our own story all about a man named bob who is tiny and jumps into people's hair, so you have to shout " get out of my Hair Bob " and shake your head, we catch him and tell him to grow 3 times, he cant say at daycare anymore so he has to get as big as one of the daddies at school and go get a job and a house, he becomes a Barber so he can still be in peoples hair in a good wayand not bug people... this all came from Munsch so thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why else did you see that... April 10 2007
By Pen33
This very funny story reminds me of my kids who always manage to get muddy each and every time they go to play. Like Jule Ann they rarely admit that they actually jumped in the mud. This is my sons favorite Munsch book. We have several that we collect. Our other favorite author is Boszenna Nowiki with her series Why Some Cats are Rascals.

2.0 out of 5 stars We love Mud Puddle April 10 2002
My preschool classes have all loved MUD PUDDLE. The repetition with in the story is great. We love to have an excuse to shout, "Hey, Mud Puddle." We've even made up actions to go with the bathing and dressing portions of the story. I love this author and this is by far my favorite of his stories.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I buy a few now and then, stash them in the glove box or bottom of my purse. Whenever we are stuck waiting with the kids in traffic or the ER I have something new and just their size to entertain - that is not electronic!
