Where to buy it


Beloved Robert Munsch stories with text adapted for beginner readers, including a note from the author, reading tips, and reading activities.

Brigid really, really loves markers. She convinces her mom to buy a new set of 500 washable coloring markers, then 500 coloring markers that smell, then 500 super-indelible-never-come-off-till-you’re-dead-and-maybe-even-later coloring markers. Which markers do you think she uses when she colors on herself?

This high-interest and fun story is easily relatable for all kids: it’s rare kids get to use permanent markers!

Robert Munsch's profile page

Hélène Desputeaux has been drawing since she was a young child. Her early "canvases" were walls, floors, hands, feet, and even the end of her nose. Since then she has added books and magazines to her repertoire, though from time to time she is still fond of returning to her early practice. Hélène and her family live just outside Montreal, Quebec.
