Description

Another laugh-out-loud book from the author of The Paper Bag Princess!

Brigid really, really loves markers. She convinces her mom to buy a new set of five hundred washable coloring markers, then five hundred coloring markers that smell, then five super-indelible-never-come-off-till-you’re-dead-and-maybe-even-later coloring markers. Which markers do you think she uses when she colors on herself?

A newly designed Classic Munsch picture book introduces this tale of exuberant artistry to a young generation of readers.

Robert Munsch's profile page

Hélène Desputeaux has been drawing since she was a young child. Her early "canvases" were walls, floors, hands, feet, and even the end of her nose. Since then she has added books and magazines to her repertoire, though from time to time she is still fond of returning to her early practice. Hélène and her family live just outside Montreal, Quebec.

Editorial Reviews

“[The] illustrations . . . are irresistibly brilliant.”

Hamilton Spectator

“A humorously exaggerated tale of a child who gets hold of super-indelible, never-come-off-until-you're-dead colored markers. Fun!”

Emergency Librarian
