Description

 

It's a very Munsch Christmas!

Canada's best loved author and illustrator team creates a festive story to ring in the holiday season — based on Robert Munsch's own family!

Every year Julie finds the Christmas presents her parents hid: in the basement, under the bed, in the garage. But this year it's Christmas Eve and she has found nothing. NOTHING! She's worried — will be there no presents at all?

Her investigation takes her to a mysterious box on the rooftop, which — lo and behold — houses all of the gifts! But, in classic Munsch style, she becomes trapped inside, creating the biggest surprise of all for her family on Christmas morning.
