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!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Colorful and funny! May 20 2002
This story begins with young Brigid's desire to have markers like all of her friends. Her anxious mother frets that Brigid will color on walls, floors, and herself. Brigid's plea is victorious when she makes her point for water color markers.
"They wash off with just water...Get me some of those." She gets a box of 500 water color markers. Brigid soon grows bored and makes her case for getting markers that smell, and then finally a box of "super-indelible-never-come-off-till-you're-dead-and-maybe-even-later colouring markers." Then, bored with paper, she starts coloring her fingernails....Brigid is a colorful character who slips into coloring on herself, as many young children do. Adults may fret that this book may encourage children to draw on themselves, but this story is funny because of the unreal solution to the very real problem of children coloring on themselves. The children that I have read this to seem to get that this is the real point to this book. This book is for every child who has ever preferred markers to crayons or colored pencils, and then wandered away from their original purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great colors, great fun Nov. 12 2007
By David
This is a great read-aloud story, with repeating phrases that your child can say with you. The pictures are colorful pictures, the text is funny. You kids will want to read the story again and again. It is a great introduction to reading for any child. For older kids I recommend the series of Why Some Cats are Rascals.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is a mini-book! June 2 2009
I was quite shocked when I received this and another Robert Munch book I ordered and found out it was a mini-book. There was no indication of this when I made my order. Disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a tiny book! June 29 2011
I haven't read it yet, but my daughter loves it. Beware, however, this book is a mini. It is not the full size version!

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't go wrong with Robert Munsch books Oct. 13 1999
By A Customer
... and this is no exception. My 4-year-old got burned out on "Where is Gah-ning?" (after a hundred readings or so) so I needed to find another book that could both enjoy as much. We're still going stong with this one. I love Munsch books as much as my daughter does - which makes them the best bedtime stories.

1.0 out of 5 stars The size of a deck of cards. Nov. 21 2013
By AmandaB
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Serious question, if someone orders a book like this for "small hands" (i.e. toddler sized) The toddler wouldn't be able to read it. SO why squish all those words on to a little page? These books need to be read with an adult or an older child. They need to be bigger! So disappointed.
