About the Author

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, We Share Everything!, So Much Snow! 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. Robert Munsch lives in Guelph, Ontario.
