Book Description

28 Oct 2012 Munsch for Kids
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 troublesome 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mud Puddle Madness! 8 Nov 2011
We loved it when the mud puddle jumped on Jule Ann. The illustrations are really funny and weird. We think Jule Ann loves the mud really.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous Mud! 16 Jun 2000
By Sara W. Broomell - Published on
Format:School & Library Binding
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 Good, Clean Fun (Ha Ha) 23 July 2012
By Pop Bop - Published on
First things first. According to Amazon, the book who's cover you see on this product page is the book you will receive. The book that you see if you click on "Look Inside" is the 1996 edition. The 1996 edition was illustrated by Sami Suomalainen. The book you want is this 2012 edition illustrated by Dusan Petricic. The differences are amazing.

The new book has delicate pastel coloring with a great deal of movement, charm, character and expression. The 1996 edition is fine, but if you look inside you will find the illustrations are heavy, dense and awfully muddy. The new book's typeface is very delicate and lively and I know this sounds sort of goofy, but it really does make the book much more charming and silly. It is a very pretty and light book to hold and examine. Jule Ann is remarkably expressive and displays a great deal of character as the story unfolds.

Because this is a short tale, with repeating themes that build to a funny ending, it really is the kind of story book that needs to be engaging, and it is made or broken by the illustrations and the simple repeating phrases.

I can see this as the type of book that starts out as a silly read-to and then becomes one of a child's first read-myself books. A very happy find.

Please note that I received a free electronic copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a frank review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindergarten classic! 3 Sep 2010
By PuroShaggy - Published on
The students in my kindergarten class, year in and year out, love this book more than most other Munsch books- an author they uniformly love. The idea of a mud puddle hiding out around a child's house, waiting to pounce and dirty the child's clean clothes, brings laughter and a little bit of appropriate tension, with each reading. The illustrations are a little bit sloppier and muddier than the normal Munsch books, as Sami Suomalainen does the art instead of Munsch's usual collaborator, Michael Martchenko. The Mud Puddle itself is fluid and sprawling with a gleefully malicious grin that intimidates in just the right way.
A great read for elementary school kids, a book I love to read as I watch the kids react, and to top it all off, the "wonders of soap" appears at the end to help solve the mud puddle problem. Classic Munsch!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book. Bad formatting. 20 Sep 2013
By DC - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a good book and presented just the right challenge for my first grader. The biggest problem was the formatting on the iPad. If you tapped the words accident,y, the entire text would disappear and the only way to get them back was to exit out and start over. Very frustrating.

5.0 out of 5 stars hilarious 9 Sep 2013

Mud puddle has become one of my kids favorite books to read. We love some mud and to give the mud puddle 'life' is a hilarious plot. May even get someone in the tub with soap. :)
