Thomas' Snowsuit

Written by: R. Munsch and M. Martchenko

First line: One day Thomas' mother bought him a nice new brown snowsuit.

Why you should read this book: Like Munsch's work, this book illustrates the hilarity inherent in the relationships between children and adults, children and their experience of the world, and children and their conviction. Thomas refuses to wear his ugly new snowsuit, although a series of adults, will increasingly less-successful results, work to stick Thomas and the snowsuit together. There's also some humor involving accidental cross-dressing and people ending up in their underwear, just right for keeping kids interested, and a surprise ending.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You wouldn't wear a brown snowsuit either.
