2: Biography | Robert Munsch was born on June 11,1945 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He grew up in a family of 9 kids. When he was 12 the day after he got his braces off his brother kicked him in the mouth and broke some of his teeth. He would have flunked grades 1-5 but his younger brother(the brain) was a grade behind and no one wanted to have them in the same class. He studied 7 years to be a Jesuit priest only to find out that he was a lousy priest. After he was done studying he worked at an orphanage. He found out that he loved working with children so he started writing books. The first book he wrote was mud puddle in 1979, it sold 3000 books in the first year. He has written 54 books and writes 2 books every year. The book love you forever was listed fourth on the 2011 publishers weekly all-time best selling children's book list of paperbacks at 6,970,000 copies sold (not including the 1,049,000 hardcover copies sold).

9: Book Review The book I'm reviewing is ZOOM! in the book Lauretta needs a new wheelchair and goes to the store to get a new one, she tries a few but they are to slow. She finds a wheelchair that is just right. She goes home and speeds on the road and gets a ticket and her mom say after supper she has to take the wheelchair back but at supper her brother stabs her finger and she has to take him to the hospital and she gets to keep her wheelchair.
