Robert Munsch is the author of more than 25 books for children including "The Paper Bag Princes" and "Stephanie's Ponytail." He was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and studied to be a Jesuit priest before deciding to work with children instead. He taught in a variety of nursery schools and daycare centers while he earned an MA in Early Childhood Education. In 1975, Munsch and his wife, Ann, moved to Guelph, Ontario. The Munschs have three children: Julie, Andrew, and Tyya (see them all in "Something Good!").
Included in the "Great Books for Children" program. Included in the 'Great Books for Children' program. The volume's price makes it an excellent buy... Highly recommended.--Dave Jenkinson"Canadian Materials" (10/20/2000) The collection's larger 10" x 10" size makes the illustrations more visible during story times, and the volume's price makes it an excellent buy, especially for newer libraries which do not own the individual titles. Highly recommended.--Dave Jenkinson"Canadian Materials" (10/20/2000)
