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
“... 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

Great value, since even on Amazon.ca each separate book is about $8.
The book did come damaged, which is a hazard of ordering online, I suppose.
