Mud Puddle
by Robert Munsch

Review by: Lori Plach

     How did you get so dirty? Parents have been asking this question
of their youngsters for many generations. No matter how many times youngsters are reminded to "stay clean." Mud seems to mysteriously show up on kids. And their answer is "I don't know how it got there."
        Jule Ann is no different than a typical kid. But the other main
character in this book is far from ordinary. No matter what Jule Ann
tries its impossible to avoid getting dirty. The mud puddle attacks her
and she's off to the bathtub again. She is thoroughly scrubbed and put in
clean button up the front pants and shirt and sent out to play.
        Jule Ann is up against one very sneaky mud puddle. She thinks she has the problem solved when she dons her raincoat on a sunny day. Only she gets too hot and takes it off only to be outsmarted once again.
         Jule Ann eventually does come out the ultimate winner in this
struggle. Soap is the most hated enemy of mud puddles. When Jule Ann sees the mud puddle fast approaching, she throws 2 bars of yellow, smelly soap into the middle. The mud is turned into bubbles and the story ends squeaky clean.
        Wonderful illustrations bringing the mud puddle to life add to
the delight of this book by Robert Munsch. From the very first page to
the very last, readers and audience will find themselves rooting for Jule
Ann to succeed over the crafty and elusive mud puddle.
        The next time you see a mud-filled youngster and they don't know
how they got so dirty. Perhaps they were attacked by the cunning nemesis.
