Robert Munsch is one of my favorite authors. The best way to describe his stories is -- silly. Many times silly and absurd things happen that don't make sense which, of course, kids love! His stories are quick, funny and make great read alouds. He uses different characters in each book, which makes each one its own special story. In fact each story is based on a child that Munsch has met. Munsch has written prolifically since his first book, Mud Puddle, was published in 1996.
Munsch is famous for his unique storytelling style. He says he performs each new story about 200 times before he gets them just right and writes them down. He has a fantastic website where you can listen to him read aloud each of his books. Munsch has 54 books published and says he writes about two a year!
