Happy Birthday, Robert Munsch


It has been over 30 years since Firefly Books published Robert Munsch’s bestselling children’s book Love You Forever, and like it’s author, the book is still much-loved by families across the world.

Robert Munsch was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1945 and found his calling as a teacher and storyteller in the 1970s when he moved to Guelph, Ontario to work at the University of Guelph's daycare.

He published his first book in 1979 and soon gained worldwide acclaim for his playful, exuberant stories.

In 1986, Firefly Books published Love You Forever, which Munsch has said is the book he is most proud to have written.



Today, in honour of his birthday, we are pleased to announce a brand new board book version of Love You Forever. This new, slightly smaller version includes the entire original story but is perfect for child-sized hands.

You can pick up a copy in stores and online September 2018.
