ROBERT MUNSCH est né en 1945 à Pittsburgh, en Pennsylvanie. C'est en travaillant dans une garderie qu'il découvre son talent de conteur, puis son habileté à écrire ses propres histoires. Aujourd'hui, Robert Munsch est l'auteur qui vend le plus de livres pour les jeunes au Canada. Ses albums sont aussi populaires ailleurs dans le monde et ont été traduits en une multitude de langues. L'auteur habite Guelph, en Ontario. ROBERT MUNSCH started telling stories when he was teaching in a daycare, to get the kids to settle down. Now he is Canada's number one author for young readers with more than 80 books in print, including such bestsellers as The Paper Bag Princess (La princesse dans un sac), We Share Everything! (On partage tout!), So Much Snow! (La tempête du siècle) and Love You Forever. Every one of his stories was first told aloud to children -- and each one is dedicated to the kid who inspired the story. He is a member of the Order of Canada, has a star on Canada's Walk of Fame, and is a hero to generations of young readers. In 2021 he was nominated for the prestigious international Astrid Lindgren Award. Robert Munsch lives in Guelph, Ontario. Visit him online at http: //scholastic.ca/munsch/.
