From Our Editors

Munschworks: The First Munsch Collection is a best-of compilation featuring five of the most popular stories by world renowned children's author Robert Munsch. Contemporary story lines, zany humour, and the exuberant artwork of Michael Martchenko link a jaunty belief in the power of children with realistic role models in outlandish situations. Munschworks features David's Father, where a giant moves into the neighbourhood; I Have to Go!, a pre-school vignette that every potty-trained child will enjoy; The Paper Bag Princess, a groundbreaking spin on a typical fairy tale; plus Thomas' Snowsuit and The Fire Station. Munsch has more than 27 titles in print, and has sold 20 million copies of his books from Australia to Armenia.

Editorial Reviews

Parsimonious purchasers should note that the volume's price is less than the sum required to purchase the five books separately in hardcover. A good home or school purchase! Recommended.
