Product Description

From Amazon

Hang on to your hats, here comes The Munschworks Grand Treasury, an extra-large picture book containing all three volumes of the previously released Munschworks collections. Fifteen popular Robert Munsch stories are under one cover, including "The Paper Bag Princess," "Stephanie's Ponytail," "David's Father," and other humorously bizarre tales. No matter what offbeat parallel universe the wildly inventive Munsch transports us to, children are always front and centre in his stories. Whether it's Jonathan fighting city hall to get a subway station rerouted from his living room, Brigid decorating herself with unwashable markers, or Stephanie causing fashion chaos in the classroom, Munsch's young characters are usually in control, much to the bug-eyed, frazzled-haired consternation of the bamboozled adults. This, of course, is hugely attractive to children, making Robert Munsch a perennial favourite with the young set.

The last story in The Munschworks Grand Treasury, "A Promise Is a Promise," features the imaginary Inuit creatures called the Qallupilluit that grab children who wander too near cracks in the ice. Written in collaboration with Michael Kusugak, "A Promise Is a Promise" reveals a deeper, somewhat darker side to Munsch's writing that suggests intriguing possibilities for future collaborations. Hefty in weight, this book is best shared across two or more laps--small children will need adult help here--but the large print and full-page colour illustrations will encourage fledgling readers while taking young and old alike on an exuberant ride through Munsch's manic imagination. (Ages 4 to 8) --Martha Johnson

Review

“... a wonderful addition to a public, school or personal library. Readers will appreciate these familiar tales with their independent characters, zany humor, and modern settings. Extra large pictures make this a good choice for storytime, and reluctant readers may even be interested by the silliness of many of these stories.” —Resource Links

“... this grand treasury from one of the funniest storytellers around will not fail to make you giggle and chuckle.” —Family Fun

“Whether a library or a home purchase, The Munschworks Grand Treasury is an excellent buy!”—CM Reviews, 10/12

From the day we brought this book home, my son has been begging me to read him the stories over and over and over again. He never seems to get tired of them! His other books are gathering dust on the shelf while he memorizes every story in this one. I highly recommend it.

I bought this book for my four year old daughter and it has become an absolute must for bed time reading. Many stories have both of us in giggles and the illustrations match the stories perfectly. It's a great way to introduce Robert Munsch to kids.

This collection is fantastic. We read at least one story with my son every night. I love that the pages are extra large as the art in these stories is fantastic.

The book did come damaged, which is a hazard of ordering online, I suppose.

This book was recommended to me for my children by a 1st grade teacher. I was reluctant to purchase it at first because of the price and because I had never read a book by Munsch. However, I decided to get it and, wow, are my kids happy. The book features many children's stories - most with silly goings on that keep my 7 and 4 year old boys in stitches. Every night for the last two months they ask to have one of the stories re-read to them. The outcome is always the same - laughter. This is an excellent work because it brings out the joy of reading for the kids. Definitely worth the money!

My grandsons love this book and grab it as soon as they notice it on the coffee table to settle down for a quiet read.

This is an excellent collection of some of Robert Munsch's best works. I grew up reading stories such as the Paper Bag Princess and many of his classics, and I can hardly wait to share them with my kids now. It's a great way to share some laughs and spend time together, and a fantastic and engaging collection for kids to learn to read with.

My favorite story is Thomas' Snowsuit by Robert N. Munsch. It is about Thomas and his mother and his teacher fighting. My favorite part is when Thomas is wearing the teachers dress. I also like when Thomas gets the teacher and the principal back into their clothes. This book is funny. You can't live without it! By Katie
