Author Notes

Robert Munsch was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on June 11, 1945. He received an undergraduate degree in history and a master's degree in anthropology. While studying to be a Jesuit priest, he worked part-time at an orphanage. He decided he liked working with children and left the Jesuits after 7 years to work in a daycare center. He studied for a year at the Elliot Pearson School of Child Studies at Tufts University. He ended up at a lab preschool at the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario and eventually became a Canadian citizen.

While working at a daycare center and telling stories to children, he realized that storytelling was what he loved to do and eventually he started writing the stories down. His first published title was Mud Puddle. He has written over 50 books including Love You Forever, Mortimer, Angela's Airplane, Andrew's Loose Tooth, Stephanie's Ponytail, Moira's Birthday, and Put Me in a Book.

Booklist Review

Ages 4^-8. Roughly 10 inches square, this volume includes the complete text and Martchenko illustrations from five of Munsch's popular picture books: The Paper Bag Princess, The Fire Station, I Have to Go!, David's Father, and Thomas' Snowsuit. Librarians who can't keep up with requests for Munsch's books will find this a cost-effective way to cope. In addition, the larger scale of the format means bigger illustrations, and the quality of the paper ensures good reproduction of the brightly colored artwork. Consider multiple copies of this collection, which offers a treasure chest of crowd-pleasing picture books at a bargain price. --Carolyn Phelan
