Something Good
Robert Munsch

An illustrated book about a father daughter relationship. Grocery shopping can be stressful, and if she could, Tyya would buy every last candybar in the store. She just wants ‘something good’. Her dad reprimands her and tells her to not move until he’s done grocery shopping. She listens and stands so still that she’s mistaken for a doll and put on the shelf with a pricetag stuck to her nose.
