Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

Tyya's dad won't buy anything good at the store - no ice cream, no candy, no cookies. But when the saleslady puts a price sticker on Tyya's nose, Daddy is finally forced to buy something good.

Michael Martchenko's illustrations...are lively, simple and expressive. The characters practically jump off the page.

About the Annikin Series:

Annikins are mini books made especially for children -- small enough to fit into tiny hands and pockets. Each book measures 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and contains full color pages. Individual titles available in quantities of 20s only.

Review Quote*"... Martchenko's exaggerated illustrations are a splendid complement to Munsch's direct and pleasantly repetitive narration. The author's popularity is already widely established, and this title should do well both in libraries and bookstores serving children of preschool and primary grades."-Library Journal
Review Quote*"Build a bank of self-esteem with ... SOMETHING GOOD ..."-Mailbox Bookbag
