About this book
Robert Munsch is a prominent and beloved children's story teller. He writes, he performs, he speaks, and he gives kids an opportunity to be heard.

But it's more than his work as an author that makes Munsch such a fascinating person to speak with.

He's also been diagnosed with bipolar and obsessive-compulsive disorders, and has struggled with addiction in the past.

His honesty and willingness to share the effects of these problems, and hard work in recovering from and treating them, has been an inspiration to many.

"I hope that others will also understand. I hope that everyone will talk to their kids honestly, listen to them, and help them do their best with their own challenges," he writes on his website.

Robert Munsch joined us for the CBC Human Library Live Online this past Saturday, January 26. You can watch a replay of the chat in the video window above.
