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

About the Author

Robert Munsch is the author of more than 25 books for children including The Paper Bag Princes and Stephanie's Ponytail. He was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and studied to be a Jesuit priest before deciding to work with children instead. He taught in a variety of nursery schools and daycare centers while he earned an MA in Early Childhood Education. In 1975, Munsch and his wife, Ann, moved to Guelph, Ontario. The Munschs have three children: Julie, Andrew, and Tyya (see them all in Something Good!).

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.

This book is quite pricy but it is big with many original Munsch's stories. Our son liked the book except one story. The last story "A Promise is A Promise" seemed to bother him a lot. He Got scared every time we turned to that last story. We had to skip it until he was 8 years old. Despite my efforts in explaining to him about the background of the story, he was still not too crazy about it. "A Promise is A Promise" may not disturb other children but it sure scares the heck out of mine.

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.

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 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!

Although this is not available here brand new, it is available over at chaptersindigo.ca for $29. Don't be taken in by greedy used booksellers trying to swindle you.

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
