Robert Munsch is one of my favourite children's authors.
I love how random his books can be.
Like Jonathan Cleaned Up and Then He Heard A Sound (Or Blackberry Jam Station).
Munsch is also a great story-teller in person. I've seen him twice live, while I was in college. :D
His BEST books are the one illustrated by Michael Martchenko.
Murmel Murmel Murmel is one of my favourites of the Munsch/Martchenko collection.
Especially because of this illustration:
"Murmel Murmel Murmel" said the baby.
"Did you say Murmel Murmel Murmel?" asked the truck driver.
"Yes!!" said the baby.
"I need you!" yelled the truck driver
He picked up the baby and started walking down the street.
I'm pretty excited about the fact that B and I get to share all kinds of great books with our little girl.
