Robert Munsch is the author of more than 25 books for children including "The Paper Bag Princes" and "Stephanie's Ponytail." He was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and studied to be a Jesuit priest before deciding to work with children instead. He taught in a variety of nursery schools and daycare centers while he earned an MA in Early Childhood Education. In 1975, Munsch and his wife, Ann, moved to Guelph, Ontario. The Munschs have three children: Julie, Andrew, and Tyya (see them all in "Something Good!"). Michael Martchenko has illustrated over 30 books for children and has exhibited his work throughout North America. He has won numerous awards for design and illustration. He lives with his wife, Patricia, in Toronto.
PreS-K Andrew's mother and father are careful to ask him beforehand, ``Andrew, do you have to go pee?'' Andrew always answers, ``No, no, no.'' Any parent can guess the rest. As soon as he's firmly belted in the car or immobilized in a snowsuit , Andrew bellows ``I have to go!'' His family is annoyed, but kind, about the inconvenience, and Andrew surprises everyone by getting up at night to go to the bathroom with grandpa and not wetting his bed again that evening. The cartoon characters are expressive and nice. A potty-trained child from three to five will enjoy the humor in this preschool vignette, but like a family photo album, this subject has limited appeal. This is an attractive, well-designed, sturdy package, but an ever-so-additional choice. Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Public Library, Alexandria, Va.
