Welcome to a fresh, contemporary look for the most popular titles by the world’s funniest children’s book author.

Brigid really, really loves markers. She convinces her mom to buy a new set of five hundred washable coloring markers, then five hundred coloring markers that smell, then five super-indelible-never-come-off-till-you’re-dead-and-maybe-even-later coloring markers. Which markers do you think she uses when she colors on herself?

A newly designed Classic Munsch picture book introduces this tale of exuberant artistry to a young generation of readers.


“A humorously exaggerated tale of a child who gets hold of super-indelible, never-come-off-until-you're-dead colored markers. Fun!”
—Emergency Librarian

“[The] illustrations . . . are irresistibly brilliant.”
—Hamilton Spectator
