".five hilarious tales by a truly great storyteller. Munsch is a master of the absurd and of the age-old technique of repetition with amusing variation.Highly recommended." - Canadian Book Review Annual

"His stories are short, sharp bursts of energy." - Canadian Children's Literature

This is the second edition of Munsch favorites, featuring:

Pigs:
Follow Megan as she tries to get the pigs back into their pen, and discover that pigs are a lot smarter than you think.

Purple, Green and yellow:
Brigid loves to draw and, when she gets her new super-incredible-nver-come-off-till-you're-dead-and-maybe-even-later coloring markers, nothing is safe!

Mortimer:
Discover why bedtime is such a noisy time with Mortimer around.

Murmel, Murmel, Murmel:
Who needs a baby that says "murmel, murmel, murmel"? Certainly not Robin, but she is determined to find someone who does.

Something Good:
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.

What’s green, purple and yellow all over, features some really smart pigs and a sandbox baby, is chock full of ice cream and candy and yodels “clang, clang, rattle-bing-bang gonna make my noise all day?” A tickle-your-ribs, great-for-a-giggle collection by Canada’s favourite storyteller. The followup to a highly popular first volume, Munschworks 2: The Second Munsch Treasury by the incomparable Robert Munsch features the wacky illustrations of longtime collaborators Michael Martchenko and Helene Desputeaux. And if you haven’t already guessed them all, the five classic stories included are Pigs, Mortimer, Purple, Green and Yellow, Murmel, Murmel, Murmel and Something Good.

Editorial Reviews

The collection's larger 10" x 10" size makes the illustrations more visible during story times, and the volume's price makes it an excellent buy, especially for newer libraries which do not own the individual titles. Highly recommended.
