MICHAEL MARTCHENKO est né à Carcassonne, en France. Il s'installe au Canada avec sa famille alors qu'il a 7 ans. En 1966, il décroche son diplôme du Collège des arts de l'Ontario et devient bientôt directeur d'une agence publicitaire.

Michael Arvaarluk Kusugak is an Inuit storyteller who grew up in Repulse Bay, NWT (now Naujaat, Nunavut). During his childhood, his family traveled by dog sled, living a traditional Inuit lifestyle. He is the author of many picture books, including Northern Lights: The Soccer Trails, winner of the Ruth Schwartz Award.
He won the Vicky Metcalf Award for Children's Literature in 2008.
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.
Vladyana Krykorka has illustrated and designed over 30 books for children. Her work has received numerous awards, including the Toronto Public Library’s recognition of Baseball Bats for Christmas as one of the 100 best children’s books of all time. In the last two years she has conducted art workshops in several Quebec Arctic communities, working with Inuit teachers in the creation of their own books and class materials, as well as textile printmaking techniques.
“This grand treasury from one of the funniest storytellers around will not fail to make you giggle and chuckle.”
“A wonderful addition to a public, school or personal library. Readers will appreciate these familiar tales with their independent characters, zany humor, and modern settings. Extra large pictures make this a good choice for storytime, and reluctant readers may even be interested by the silliness of many of these stories.”
“Whether a library or a home purchase, The Munschworks Grand Treasury is an excellent buy!”
