Too Much Stuff!

When Temina’s mom tells her to pack only one doll for her trip to see Grandma, Temina doesn’t agree and secretly packs 20 dolls. When the flight attendant asks Temina if she can borrow dolls for the other children on the plane, Temina graciously hands them over. Months later Temina receives surprise packages from various places around the world.

Description

 

A classic Munsch tale with a fresh new look!

Temina is excited about taking a trip on an airplane, and super-excited to include ALL of her toys and dolls on the trip as well.

Until mom says: “You can bring just ONE doll.”

Impossible! How is she going to pick just ONE?

The answer is, she doesn’t. Temina hatches a top secret plan to bring the toys onto the plane right under her mother’s nose. Once everyone is safely aboard the plane, Temina opens her bag and out pop all her travelling companions. Word spreads quickly to other children on the plane, who feel lonely without their own dolls. Temina is happy to lend out her treasures, and saves the day. Her good deed is felt all across the globe and her generosity is rewarded in the most surprising way!

Editorial Review

 

Praise for Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko

"Laurel and Hardy, Holmes and Watson, peanut butter and jam — some things just go better together. Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko figured that out a number of years ago, and have been teaming up to produce silly, insanely popular books ever since." —Quill & Quire

 

Praise for Robert Munsch

“[Munsch is] a kindergarten superstar he ranks up there with Pablum and Pampers in name recognition arguably the most published Canadian author ever, in any genre.” — The Globe and Mail, Report on Business Magazine

"Munsch's parade of bright funny picture books has been a sales phenomenon in children's book publishing . . . And as Munsch books are requested by kids over and over every day in countless homes and schools, at story time and bedtime, the distinctive storyteller's voice will undoubtedly continue to be echoed for years to come by parents, teachers, babysitters and whomever else young kids can get to read to them." — The Chronicle Herald

"Arguably the most successful kid-lit writer in North America." — Toronto Star

"More witty, creative and entertaining than most of what passes for adult literature." — The Globe and Mail

“Munsch is now as important to a whole generation of children as any television character. ”— Quill & Quire
