Ontario Library Association's Silver Birch Non-Fiction Nominee, 2010

Rocky Mountain Book Award Shortlist, 2012

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
