Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 Thomas refuses to wear his new brown snowsuit: "If you think I am going to wear that ugly snowsuit you are crazy!" He reinforces this statement with a resounding "NNNNNO" when his mother insists he don the suit. His mother jumps up and down, and they have an enormous fight. This behavior is repeated with Thomas' teacher and the school principal. In the process of a fight, Thomas and his teacher end up in their underwear. Thomas never suffers any ill-consequences for his rude behavior; he looks on with a smirk as his mother, teacher and principal are made to look foolish. In the end the principal retires to Arizona "where nobody ever wears a snowsuit." Thomas comes off as a manipulating, rude little brat. Audiences may chuckle over the cartoon-like illustrations; they are bright and colorful, and do fit the story. However, this is one Canadian import that should be left north of the border. Evelyn Homan, Lexington Public Library District, Ill.

Customer Reviews

Robert Munsch books are delightful and funny.

No one should support this book, unless you want a child who is rude and disrespectful!

The size of the book should have been made clear in the immediate description.

As a Minnesota preschool teacher, I can't tell you how realistic this book is! (in an exagerated way, of course). This book has become a classroom favorite every winter when snowsuits are a way of life. Robert Munsch really knows children and the way they think. Thomas, his teacher, and even the principal have an excitable time getting Thomas into his brown snowsuit to play outdoors. A word of warning: underwear causes fits of hysterical laughter to any 3 to 5 year old!

I ordered this book along with a few others and was completely shocked when I opened the box! The book is only 2 inches x 2inches in size - It looks as though it belongs to a toy doll - Extremely dissappointed - I intended to use this with my student during speech therapy sessions but I am doubtful that it will be useful now
I have ordered books from Amazon in the past and never stopped to look at the size of it before ordering but guess from now I will have to!

DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM unless you buy a magnifying glass with it. I am a pre-school teacher and I can't even imagine reading this book (?) to my kids. Really, it's 3" x 3" and is impossible to use as a classroom book. This review is for the "PAPERBACK" version and NOT the hardcover.

I first heard this story in my education class while we were learning how to do shared reading in the classroom. Being read to in the child's perspective was interesting enough, but to have this book read was a blast. The pictures are humorous and the story makes children and adults laugh. Everyone knows that parents make you do something you can't stand. We have all seen "The Christmas Story" with the red-rider bb gun and the infamous overly wrapped for winter younger brother. This book reminds me of that hilarious scene. Once the teacher and the principal get in the act it gets all crazy. In the end, just like you would expect a child to do, he jumps right into his snowsuit when it lets him do something he wants to do, play. This is a sweet story, a good read for children.

I read this book out loud at our gymnastics training center, and the kids thought it was amusing but the coaches were on the floor! The rollicking humor of Munsch's books makes them ideal read-alouds for parents bored with the "See Spot Run" style. I can also recommend "Moira's Birthday" and "The Paper Bag Princess" but "Thomas' Snowsuit" is the funniest of the bunch.

Munsch writes some really funny books. In this one, Thomas won't put on his snowsuit. It's UGLY, and he has no qualms about saying so whenever the grown-ups try to make him wear it. In the ensuing fights, his teacher ends up in his snowsuit, his principal and teacher end up swapping clothes by accident, everybody ends up in their underwear, and Thomas puts on his snowsuit when he decides it's important to go out in the snow.

Bunch of silly nonsense, no moral whatsoever. That's refreshing, isn't it?

A word to the wise: IF you are going to purchase the "Annikins" edition of this book, take a moment to read the product description. It states very clearly in the description that the Annikins books are sized at 3.5 x 3.5 inches and are miniature books for miniature hands. After the first three comments it's no longer funny to read people whining that "they didn't KNOW the book was so small!" when, in fact, it's there in bold print, directly under the editorial review.

Format: Paperback
I'm buying a copy for each of my kids to save for them when they're grown. This book has provided wonderful hours of reading and precious fits of laughter. It's also been an avenue to open conversations about acceptable behavior. I disagree with the review that it teaches children disrespectful behavior, actually I teach my children acceptable behavior and to discern when they are out of line. Thomas is definitely a way for them to bring that lesson home, in a hilarious way! Everyone needs to laugh and I love that this book appeals to the very young (my two year old loves to say no! with Thomas)and to the very old (my grandma read it to the kids the other night and cackled along with them!). Lighten up and enjoy life! That's the message of Munsch!
