Thomas' Snowsuit by Robert Munsch


Thomas' Snowsuit by Robert Munsch

The hilarious story of a young boy's refusal to wear his new snowsuit has been making readers laugh since its original publication 25 years ago. This latest edition, with revised text plus new artwork from Michael Martchenko will make the familiar story even more appealing to a new generation of young readers. Wilful young Thomas refuses to wear his new winter snowsuit, despite the pleas of his mother, his teacher and even his head teacher. When everyone's best efforts lead only to comedic chaos and cross-dressing confusion, they all agree it's best to let Thomas suit himself. This is marvellous mischief from master storyteller Robert Munsch.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
