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.

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!

The ridiculously small size makes this book worthless!! You would think ya might mention that this book is less then 2 inches by 2 inches. Not very practice for little hands. Part of the reason I got this book was because the pictures are hysterical ( not that u can see them in this version of the book).
Really who is this book for? My kitten?

I purchased this book as a Kindle ebook, so I didn't have to worry about the comments people have made about how small the printed book is. Lucky for me!

What I did like most about the book are the hysterical illustrations and the fact that the text is on the same page as the illustration to which it applies. (This is not the case with Love You Forever!)

I'd say that if you want a serious book to share with your child, buy something else. If you want to laugh and recognize that the school principal is never going to dress in the teacher's clothes, etc. and just have a good time, then buy Thomas' Snowsuit. The Kindle version is really good! And for a wonderful new children's book, you might try: Carolee Sings in the Christmas Choir: A Christmas Story for Children of All Ages (Carolee - Adventures of an Angel)

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.

I love every book written by Robert Munsch. I have read the books to my students. They love the repetition of sentences and the fact that kids often outsmart the adults. Illustrations in this book are excellent!

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.
