the pleas of his mother, his teacher and even his principal. When
everyone''s best efforts lead only to comedic chaos, they all agree
it''s best to let Thomas suit himself. This is marvelous mischief
from Munsch and Martchenko.

by Robert Munsch and illustrated by Michael Martchenko
Munsch has taken an ordinary situation and infused it with humour. Thomas refuses to wear his snowsuit, even though adults try to convince him to come play. Thomas eventually jumps into his snowsuit, and off he goes. Children love that Thomas, while causing mischief, seems to have complete control of the situation. Any parent of young children will certainly relate to this funny story. As usual with Munsch, this is a great family book.
