Editorial Reviews

“Five hilarious tales by a truly great storyteller. Munsch is a master of the absurd and of the age-old technique of repetition with amusing variation . . . Highly recommended.”

Canadian Book Review Annual

“His stories are short, sharp bursts of energy.”

Canadian Children’s Literature

“Highly recommended.” 

CM Reviews

“Better for sharing the pictures with story hour and classroom groups. A bargain for any library where Munsch books are popular.”
