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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from yaa I am eleven and a half and when I was younger I totally loved this book. I memorized the "bang bang rattle bing bang gonna make my noise all day,bang bang rattle bing bang gonna make my noise all day" part. And I still say sometimes to bug my parents. If you have younger children or siblings go to chapters and buy this great book I bet ya that they will love it. P.S. they may repeat the words!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Munsch never loses appeal Although I am well passed my childhood, I continue to read Munsch's books for their brilliant humour, wacky plotlines, and interesting characters. These are the books that made me a lifetime reader . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book for kids of all ages Both my 5 year old, and my 2 year old love this book. Munsch's humour comes through in these silly stories that really enhances their imagination. At bedtime this book, and the first Munschworks book are selected by my children most often, from their considerably large bookshelf full of great books. This book makes a great gift, and/or a great reward. Enjoy it, I sure do, and so does my children.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Munschworks 2 the best My daughter loves this book! It gives her five different Munsch stories to read so the likelyhood of me going crazy reading the same story again and again is decreased. My only concern is that some of the stories have some questionalbe material for smaller children, only because it gives them ideas about how to misbehave. This is a book that you must read and explain at times but well worth the effort. I say HOORAY for Munsch!

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.
