Editorial Reviews

“A great value in terms of both its content and its cost, Munschworks 4 would be a fine gift for an individual child or would make a most useful addition to school or public library collections. Highly recommended.”

CM Reviews

“This volume will be visited time and again by young fans of Robert Munsch and will be appreciated by school and public libraries as well as family collections.”

Resource Links

“Munsch has flooded the market with some of the most original, creative, and bizarre children’s literature since Dr. Seuss . . . Munschworks 4 is as good a reason as any to run out and discover this truly gifted children’s author . . . Munsch’s writing bursts at the seams with quirky details, outlandish plot twists, and an underlying surrealistic edge. Like Seuss, Munsch’s books also contain important lessons about life, which makes indulging in his work that much more satisfying.”
