He is a hero to generations of young Canadians, a member of the Order of Canada, and has a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame. Robert Munsch lives in Guelph, Ontario. Visit him online at www.robertmunsch.com.
Michael Martchenko’s art and sensibility perfectly complements Robert Munsch’s. He can make any situation sillier with his pencil and watercolours, and always manages to slip in a pterodactyl or two. He lives in Toronto, Ontario, with his wife and their cairn terrier, Mindy.

Well that's what Hailey thought too. That is, until it happened. Everything started off pretty good. Right up until Hailey found out that she'd literally be in the book! All that bending and squishing kind of hurt. Plus, she really wanted to get out and play with her friends.
It was at that point that Hailey and the rest of Mrs. O'Dell's class realize that Hailey was actually stuck in the book. No amount of pulling seemed to help. Was Hailey going to have to stay in the book forever?
I fun story. A little shorter on text than some of Munsch's other works. However, that worked in my favor as I could enjoy the book with younger kids with a slightly shorter attention span.
Hailey thinks it would be cool to be a character in an author's new book. But then he literally puts her in the book and she can't get out.
Her friends try various ways to extract her and she cries out in pain.
Finally she gets out and has her revenge on the author by sticking him in his own book... forever.
The end of the story shows the author stuck in the book begging to get out.
Pain, revenge and a terrifying ending are not what I expect to find in books for children at this age.
Munsch's books are really hit and miss. This one deserves a big miss. My daughter did not like this book and I didn't either!
