Product Description

Review

“Munsch has a wacky sense of humor … Wait and See is a cute story, briskly paced, with a nice twist of an ending.”—Long Beach Press-Telegramn

“... it’s madcap, manic and thoroughly entertaining.” —Ottawa Citizen

He was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and studied to be a Jesuit priest before deciding to work with children instead. He taught in a variety of nursery schools and daycare centers while he earned an MA in Early Childhood Education. In 1975, Munsch and his wife, Ann, moved to Guelph, Ontario. The Munschs have three children: Julie, Andrew, and Tyya (see them all in Something Good!).

This is my first Robert Munsch book, and I'm hooked! I read it to my son's kindergarten class yesterday and it made me look like a hero. They ATE IT UP. We laughed so hard we cried. Olivia is a great little heroine, and the kids could identify with her and were tickled with the "trouble" she cooked up.
Can't wait to dig into my next Munsch/Martchenko book. Thanks, guys!

HASH(0xa5b37f84) out of 5 stars Children's Books Jan. 10 2010
By Betty the Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I always buy books by Robert Munsch. My grandson did not like to read UNTIL he read one of the books I had. Not only did he like it, but wanted to take it home to read to his mother. Robert Munsch writes books that are about children and children love to read about other children. I simply love all books by him.

All 23 of my prek students loved this book and were surprised by the ending. They wanted me to read it over and over.
Munsch writing style makes you want to believe this story really happened.

A delightful tale that makes you smile. My third grade writers laughed at each outcome. It brings meaning to be careful what you wish for.
HASH(0xa6a2c798) out of 5 stars A wonderful Story July 20 2011
By T. Chandler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my six year old daughter and she loves it. The illustrations compliment the story and are just as funny. My daughter also loves it when the candles are being blown out for each wish that is made and the answer that the little girl in the story tells her parents after they ask her about the wishes. My daughter always insists on reading these parts, especially loud and while giggling. It is a wonderfully creative story and I'm glad that I got it for her.
