Robert Munsch: Portrait of an Extraordinary Canadian

Front Cover
Ingram Pub Services, Mar 2, 2009 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 71 pages
1 Review

Young readers may be amazed to learn that Canada's bestselling author (30 million books so far) started off in Pennsylvania and struggled in school. A solitary daydreamer, raised in a large, boisterous family, he found solace in books at an early age. Considered a slow learner by the nuns who taught him, his creative gifts were eventually recognized by a sympathetic librarian who encouraged him to keep reading.

User Review  - Mark Nenadov - Goodreads

A fun, warm look at the work and life of the great children's storyteller/author Robert Munsch. That said, more recent admissions seem to suggest that there is plenty of sugarcoating/haigography here. Read full review
