Editorial Reviews

Canadian Materials - Dave Jenkinson
Given that the compilation's price is less than the amount required to purchase the same five titles even in their soft cover versions, these Munsch collections are an excellent value for home, school or library purchase. Highly Recommended.
Children's Literature
This collection of five imaginative and quirky stories features clever children, tricky endings, silliness and a bit of the supernatural. Stephanie wants to be different but that is a challenge, when everyone at school keeps copying her hairstyles. Angela goes to the airport with her father, wanders onto an empty airplane and ends up on quite an adventure because she can't resist pressing the buttons. Jonathan is surprised to find that his apartment has become a stop on the city subway. Benjamin decides there is nothing neater he can bring to show-and-tell than his new baby sister, Sharon. When Allashua defies her parents and goes fishing by the sea ice where the Qallupilluit live, she and her family must outsmart the monsters once and for all. The pictures in this book are full of humor and energy and feature racially diverse characters. 2000, Annick Press, $19.95. Ages 6 to 10. Reviewer: Emily Schuster
