“Books by Robert Munsch are a staple of every child’s book collection and a favourite among parents and kids. They’re fun, frivolous and downright silly. And they just keep getting better.” —


“Although his writing style is fun and exaggerated, Robert’s stories frequently have a deeper meaning and touches on some difficult parts of life . . . I think I love Robert Munsch more now as an adult than I did as a child.” — My Wee View
