"In this engaging biography, Frank B. Edwards chronicles the circuitous route the author took to become the celebrated "storyteller to a nation". . . Insights, along with peeks into Munsch's creative process, will be intriguing material for young readers. . . Robert Munsch is a concise but certainly sufficient treatment, one that won't tax young readers but won't leave their parents feeling cheated, either."
— Quill & Quire
"This new biography of much-loved children's author Robert Munsch is an interesting and comprehensive look at his life and work. Edwards acknowledges Munsch's full support and co-operation in the writing of this book, and the book certainly has a much more 'complete' feel than any other Munsch biographies currently available. The pictures that are included show a much more personal side to Munsch, and will interest the young reader and Munsch fan. …This is a well-written biography that will be of interest to all Munsch fans. Any library with a full collection of Munsch's work should also own this volume; it also offers Munsch fans something to read while they wait for the next Munsch book to be published!"
Rated G (Good)
