On his latest CD compilation, Murmel Murmel Munsch!, Robert Munsch performs 14 stories. In Murmel Murmel Murmel, a little girl hears a strange sound coming from a hole in her sandbox. She reaches in the hole and pulls out a baby. Realizing she can’t care for the baby, she finds a man who is able and eager to do so.
His previous CD, Love You Forever, features 13 stories. On the title track, Munsch sings the refrain that has brought tears to millions of mothers’ eyes: I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be.
Most of the stories were recorded before live audiences of children. Inspired by Munsch’s
fast-paced style and zany vocal effects, the kids join in—yelling out favorite lines and emphasizing repeated phrases. My daughter, Natalie, age six, loves to listen to the CDs and “help” Munsch tell each story.
For more of the stories behind the stories—the when, where, and how that served as inspiration—check out both CDs’ rich liner notes.
