I love Robert Munsch! I saw this title on so I guess it's been re-released, but originally it was published twenty years ago. Like all Robert Munsch books, it holds up beautifully. It's also one of my daughter's favourite types of Robert Munsch stories, namely the little-kid-with-a-fast-vehicle (her other favourites are Angela's Airplane and Zoom!). Of course, one of the best thing about Robert Munsch books is Robert Munsch himself, his storytelling is beyond compare. If you ever have a chance to take your child to see him in person, it's definitely worth it. In the meantime, check out his website. You can download audio files of him reading almost all of his books. (It's fantastic for long car rides for those of us who don't have video games and DVD players in our cars.)

Hit the jump for Magda's assessment and more!
Magda (my two-year-old daughter who loves books and has very strong opinions about them) had this to say:
"Did they go to the fire station? And then they went in the police car? Where's the police car book? Can you tell me that story?"
