Famous author writes to local school

Students at Grassy Plains school enjoy Robert Munsch’s books.

Grassy Plains school students were elated to receive mail from one of their most favourite authors, Robert Munsch. Munsch is a beloved children’s author, with popular books including The Paper Bag Princess, Love You Forever, Playhouse, and many more.

After reading his book Moose, the students at Grassy Plains came up with a great idea. They decided to write and illustrate their own animal encounter stories to share with Robert Munsch.

They thought it would be great to give him a break from writing stories and wanted to entertain him for a change. The students’ stories contained great Southside adventures and crazy animal antics.

Robert Munsch replied with great praise for the students’ stories, including an entertaining letter, posters, an autographed book and even one of his own worn toques.

The best treat of all was an unpublished story from Munsch, that included students from Grassy Plains school as characters. The Grade 3 and 4 class will present  the story to the community in the new year.
