A collection of five stories by Robert Munsch, with illustrations from Michael Martchenko.

In this Munsch-tastic oversized collection, readers will find the following five stories: "More Pies!",  "Zoom!", "Smelly Socks", "Boo!" and "The Sandcastle Contest".

Plus a complete Munsch story, Braids, with art by some very special illustrators — kids! Braids was originally published by eight-year-old Taya Kendall in support of the charity Children of Bukati, which helps orphaned Kenyan children attend school. Scholastic Canada is making a donation to Children of Bukati in the name of the kids from Sir Isaac Brock Public School, who drew the pictures. (From Scholastic Canada Ltd.)
