About the story

Put Me in a Book! was inspired by a Grade 2 class that wrote a letter to Robert Munsch. He sent them back an unpublished story called "The Book" and the class created their own oversized, laminated version of the story, illustrated with photographs of the whole class and including a photocopied "Robert Munsch" mask as a stand-in for the author.

Munsch loved the class's book so much he sent it to his editor at Scholastic. But he had lost the letter that came with the book, so she set out to track down the classroom using the teacher's name and clues that were in the photographs. At last she found Madame O'Dell at Laurentian Public School in North Bay, Ontario. Madame O'Dell and her class were thrilled to be part of their very own book.
