Our third fabulous Munsch anthology, with extra bonus material!
Every kid knows that there is nothing better than sharing a hilarious story by Robert Munsch at bedtime, bathtime, and beyond — so why stop at one?
In this Munsch-tastic oversized collection, readers will find the following five stories:
- More Pies!
- Smelly Socks
- The Sandcastle Contest
Plus a complete Munsch story, Braids, with art by some very special illustrators — kids! Braids was originally published by eight-year-old Taya Kendall in support of the charity Children of Bukati, which helps orphaned Kenyan children attend school. Scholastic Canada is making a donation to Children of Bukati in the name of the kids from Sir Isaac Brock Public School, who drew the pictures.
Mad About Munsch! is a wonderful collection at a wonderful price!
ROBERT MUNSCH started telling stories when he was teaching in a daycare, to get the kids to settle down. Now he is Canada’s number one author for young readers with more than 80 books in print, including such bestsellers as The Paper Bag Princess, We Share Everything!, So Much Snow! and Love You Forever. Every one of his stories was first told aloud to children – and each one is dedicated to the kid who inspired the story. He is a member of the Order of Canada, has a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, and is a hero to generations of young readers. Robert Munsch lives in Guelph, Ontario.
