Book Description

Feb. 1 2001 Robert Munsch
Anna loves to climb, even if she's not always successful. What's more, she's impossible to stop! Up, up, up she goes, to the very top of the enormous tree in her yard. ”Be careful!” says her mother. ”Come down!” says her father. But getting Anna down is not as easy as it looks! The reusable, clear vinyl carrying case is designed with a separate pouch to hold the cassette for easy storage, and features a re-fastenable snap on the back for easy access.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

reS-Gr 3-In this zany story, Anna likes to climb on the refrigerator and her dresser and go "up, up, up" even though she falls down "ow ouch!" When her parents protest, she goes outside, where it's okay to climb, and climbs the highest tree she can find. Sitting in the top, she goads her parents to come after her; when they fall down trying, she relents and climbs down to wrap them in "enormous Band-Aids" and repeats what they've been telling her: "Be CAREFUL-don't CLIMB!" The humor is in the timing, the changing size and placement of the text, and the silliness of the plot. The watercolor illustrations are also over-the-top with ridiculously exaggerated points of view, comical-looking characters, and little jokes, such as a tiny treetop animal watching TV or stars flying off Daddy's injured bottom. This is sure to be a hit, especially with this team's fans.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disrespectful April 14 2009
By Dody
Robert Munsch is one of my favourite authors, but I think he really messed up in this book.
The idea of the book in fine, but I found it very disrespectful to picture a character who is calling her father a dirty rascal. I would not let my daughter read that book again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robert Munsch scores again! March 13 2001
Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko have teamed up for another OUTSTANDING children's book. Kids of all ages will enjoy the tree climbing adventures of Anna. Although Anna is told by her parents not to climb, she continues to climb anything in and outside the house. It was like being reunited with an old friend when I read Munsch's favorite kid response come out of Anna's mouth,'No, no, no, no, no!' The details found in the illustrations always amaze me as I recognize pieces from past Munsch/Martchenko creations. Anna makes every parent smile as she works to help her wounded parents.
