Editorial Reviews

Canadian Materials
A good home or school purchase! Recommended.
— Dave Jenkinson
Canadian Materials - Dave Jenkinson
Parsimonious purchasers should note that the volume's price is less than the sum required to purchase the five books separately in hardcover. A good home or school purchase! Recommended.
Children's Literature
This thick volume contains five of Munsch's best loved stories. The Paper Bag Princess, The Fire Station, I Have to Go!, David's Father, and Thomas' Snowsuit are reissued here in a slightly larger format than the original books. Imagine that your father is a really scary giant, or that your parents do not recognize you because you are so dirty, or that a dragon has smashed your castle and burned all your clothes with his fiery breath, or that your mother buys you an ugly brown snowsuit and makes you wear it to school, or that every time you get your snowsuit on (the one with five zippers, ten buckles and 17 snaps), you have to go pee. Welcome to Munsch's silly world. His stories have a wonderful read-aloud quality that will delight a whole new generation of children.
