From the Q&Q archives: Robert Munsch releases first kids’ album, gets wacky

Back in May 1983, when Q&Q still dabbled in music coverage, writer Richard Perry reviewed Robert Munsch’s first album, Favourite Stories, preferring it over Andy Summers and Robert Fripp’s guitar-heavy collaboration, I Advance Masked.

Perry praised the “University of Guelph professor” for telling stories with “such exaggerated wackiness that they do take on a strange fascination appropriate to their surreal nature.”
