We think Rober Munsch is hilarious! Do you agree? Here are some of our favorite funny Munsch picture books.

Kiss Me, I’m Perfect – It will make anyone who’s received a “grandma gift” groan with recognition.

Stephanie’s Ponytail – Great for reminding you to be yourself; to not do what everyone else is doing — or you might end up bald!

The Paperbag Princeess –  The story of a brave princess who rescues a prince with a surprise ending. The whole story is quite funny.

Andrew’s Loose Tooth. An exploration of ways to extract a tooth. My favorite part is the leather clad motorcycle driving tooth fairy.

Don’t miss – Purple, Green and Yellow, Mmmm . . . Cookies and Smelly Socks, they are must reads for any Munsch fan!

(Munsch also wrote Love you Forever which is the only book I don’t really like — maybe it’s just me but isn’t it kind of creepy that a mom would crawl into her grown son’s window to rock him to sleep?)

Anyway, what to do with your Munsch collection of books?

How about these activities?

2 – 4 year olds:

  • Make your own paper bag princess or prince.
  • Draw your favorite part of the story you read with “super-indelible-never-comeoff-utill-you’re-dead-and-maybe-even-later” (quote from Purple, Green and Yellow.)

5 – 12 year olds:

  • Look for onomatopoeias when you read.  (Words that sound like what they are – crunch is an example.)
  • Find where Munsch uses repetition in the story.
  • Write Rober Munsch a letter and tell him an idea you have for a new funny book or tell him your favorite book and why it’s your favorite.
