Description

Hijinks and silliness abound during a class trip to the museum in this latest story by Canada’s best-loved and bestselling picture book duo, Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko.

 

Stephanie and Sean’s class goes on a trip to the museum, where they get to watch baby chickens hatching. That gets them wondering what might be hatching out of the bigger eggs nearby.

Then they ask the museum guide to show them the biggest egg in the museum. When they find it, they see that whatever was inside has already hatched, so the kids decide to have a little fun and hatch a scheme to prank the rest of the class.

Praise and accolades for Robert Munsch:

 

“Books by Robert Munsch are a staple of every child’s book collection and a favourite among parents and kids. They’re fun, frivolous and downright silly. And they just keep getting better.” — SavvyMom.ca

 

“Although his writing style is fun and exaggerated, Robert’s stories frequently have a deeper meaning and touches on some difficult parts of life . . . I think I love Robert Munsch more now as an adult than I did as a child.” — My Wee View

 

“From my experience, kids love Robert Munsch stories, and the collection of books in Mad About Munsch is no exception!” — Glimpse Reviews

 

“Laurel and Hardy, Holmes and Watson, peanut butter and jam — some things just go better together. Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko figured that out a number of years ago, and have been teaming up to produce silly, insanely popular books ever since.” — Quill & Quire

 

“[Munsch is] a kindergarten superstar he ranks up there with Pablum and Pampers in name recognition arguably the most published Canadian author ever, in any genre.” — The Globe and Mail, Report on Business Magazine

 

“Munsch’s parade of bright funny picture books has been a sales phenomenon in children's book publishing . . . And as Munsch books are requested by kids over and over every day in countless homes and schools, at story time and bedtime, the distinctive storyteller’s voice will undoubtedly continue to be echoed for years to come by parents, teachers, babysitters and whomever else young kids can get to read to them.” — The Chronicle Herald

 

“Arguably the most successful kid-lit writer in North America.” — Toronto Star
