“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.”
