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
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!).
