Wouldn’t it be cool to be the character in a book? Just imagine it. All your friends and family would be so proud. Your teachers would probably even ask the librarian to put a copy of the book in the school library where everyone could see it. It would be great? Wouldn’t it?

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

A fun read with an interesting and quite complicated messages, whether intended or not by the author, about a student who initially wants to be in a book not realizing she would actually be stuck in the book.

The author in the story feels it's an honour to be in a book!
While the students attempt several times to squeeze, twist, stomp and pull their friend out of the book, the only way to get her out is to rewrite the ending! Brilliant. Since the author is so convinced it's an honour to be in a b

This book showcases the mostly silly side of Robert Munsch. Hailey wants to be a character in a book, so the writer of the book puts her in it. Literally! Hailey is stuck inside the book and her classmates try to get her out using a bunch of funny ideas.
I enjoyed all the descriptive words Munsch used when they were trying to get Hailey out. The font and shape the words were in kind of showed what the word meant too. I can't explain it much better than that sans pictures, but if you pick this up
Such a fun book to show students how to write like a writer! The author is trying to decide what child should be in his book when one of the children volunteers. The book highlights all the ways her friends try to get her back out of the book. It also teaches the power of writing. Things happen simply because of the words on a page. Similar to Mo Willems' "We Are In A Book." Here the author read it aloud here: Great activity for visualizing.

Very funny Munsch book. Munsch literalises the idea of being "in" a book. The literal prospect is not as exciting as the figurative! Great twist ending with an unfortunate fate for the author.
