Book Description

June 1 1989 Classic Munsch

Willful, young Thomas refuses to wear his new snowsuit, despite the pleas of his mother, his teacher and even his principal. When everyone's best efforts lead only to comedic chaos, they all agree it's best to let Thomas suit himself. This is marvelous mischief from Munsch and Martchenko.

Product Details


Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 Thomas refuses to wear his new brown snowsuit: "If you think I am going to wear that ugly snowsuit you are crazy!" He reinforces this statement with a resounding "NNNNNO" when his mother insists he don the suit. His mother jumps up and down, and they have an enormous fight. This behavior is repeated with Thomas' teacher and the school principal. In the process of a fight, Thomas and his teacher end up in their underwear. Thomas never suffers any ill-consequences for his rude behavior; he looks on with a smirk as his mother, teacher and principal are made to look foolish. In the end the principal retires to Arizona "where nobody ever wears a snowsuit." Thomas comes off as a manipulating, rude little brat. Audiences may chuckle over the cartoon-like illustrations; they are bright and colorful, and do fit the story. However, this is one Canadian import that should be left north of the border. Evelyn Homan, Lexington Public Library District, Ill.

1.0 out of 5 stars Small Books Dec 11 2012
By Danny
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I believe that they should put in the title of their product that these books are very small. Like smaller than the palm of your hand. They do advise the dimensions of the books in small print but I measure blinds, not books. I feel that they are not disclosing properly that these are not regular size books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thomas' Snowsuit June 27 2000
Format:Library Binding
This is a GREAT book for reading to kids, with kids, and by kids! The hilarious storyline and repetitive nature keep even the most reluctant reader interested. It's a "laugh till your belly hurts" book!

3.0 out of 5 stars One SMALL complaint Feb. 22 2012
Format:Paperback
When purchasing this book, I assumed I was getting a full sized book. Unfortunately this was not the case. What I received was a miniature book about the size of the palm of my hand. No matter, my two year old loved it non the less.

1.0 out of 5 stars misleading ad Dec 22 2012
By Peggy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is about 3 inches by 3 inches - unlike the one I bought which was advertised right beside it and they were the same size in the picture. So tiny but you would never know it to look at the picture, the other one I bought is standard size. Good story but lousy packaging and very misleading ad.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is hilarious for kids of all ages! July 25 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have worked in the children's department of my public library for over a year and this is one of the most popular books in the library. I can't decide who enjoys it more- the children or the parents. The book is just good plain fun with something everyone knows about: trying to get a small boy into a yucky, confining snowsuit. The story gets funnier with each succeseive person the snowsuit ends up on. I love this book and recommend it to many patrons. Munsch is one of the funniest authors I've ever had the pleasure to read

5.0 out of 5 stars A Family Favorite Feb. 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I'm buying a copy for each of my kids to save for them when they're grown. This book has provided wonderful hours of reading and precious fits of laughter. It's also been an avenue to open conversations about acceptable behavior. I disagree with the review that it teaches children disrespectful behavior, actually I teach my children acceptable behavior and to discern when they are out of line. Thomas is definitely a way for them to bring that lesson home, in a hilarious way! Everyone needs to laugh and I love that this book appeals to the very young (my two year old loves to say no! with Thomas)and to the very old (my grandma read it to the kids the other night and cackled along with them!). Lighten up and enjoy life! That's the message of Munsch!
