Q: I love Robert Munsch! How can I find out more about him and his books?
A: 
Robert Munsch likes to use the kids he meets on his storytelling adventures across Canada and the United States in his books. For example, once Robert Munsch was on an airplane from Toronto to Edmonton when the girl sitting across from him opened up her backpack and took out an army of dolls! She put some on her seat, attached some to the seat in front of her and put even more on her table. Munsch then wrote a story about it and told it to the girl, whose name was Temina. That is how the book Too Much Stuff! came to be.
