Description

 

Our third fabulous Munsch anthology, with extra bonus material!

Every kid knows that there is nothing better than sharing a hilarious story by Robert Munsch at bedtime, bathtime, and beyond — so why stop at one?

In this Munsch-tastic oversized collection, readers will find the following five stories:

  • More Pies!
  • Zoom!
  • Smelly Socks
  • Boo!
  • The Sandcastle Contest

Plus a complete Munsch story, Braids, with art by some very special illustrators — kids! Braids was originally published by eight-year-old Taya Kendall in support of the charity Children of Bukati, which helps orphaned Kenyan children attend school. Scholastic Canada is making a donation to Children of Bukati in the name of the kids from Sir Isaac Brock Public School, who drew the pictures.

Mad About Munsch! is a wonderful collection at a wonderful price!
