The Munschworks Grand Treasury is a collection of collections in that all of the 15 Munsch titles it contains were originally found in one of three earlier compilations: Munschworks: The First Munsch Collection (Vol. V, No.14, March 12, 1999), Munschworks 2: The Second Munsch Treasury (Vol. VII, No. 4, October 20, 2000) and Munschworks 3: The Third Munsch Treasury (Vol. VII, No. 17, April 27, 2001). The earliest title represented in the Grand Treasury collection is the classic The Paper Bag Princess (1980) while the most recent is Stephanie's Ponytail that was published in 1996. The only two that CM somehow missed reviewing when they first appeared were Jonathan Cleaned up – Then He Heard a Sound (1981) and the aforementioned Stephanie's Ponytail, with both being illustrated by the artist most frequently connected with Munsch' s books, Michael Martchenko. Those familiar with Munsch's corpus will recall that Jonathan had to solve the problem of his family`s apartment suddenly and surprisingly becoming a subway station. Stephanie, on the other hand, had to figure out how she could cease to be the unintended hair styling trendsetter for the girls in her school.
