A very Munsch Christmas!

For the first time ever, Canada's best loved author and illustrator team creates a festive story to ring in the holiday season - with all of the zaniness fans have come to expect, of course!

Every year Julie finds the Christmas presents her parents hid: in the basement, under the bed, in the garage. But this year it's Christmas Eve and she has found nothing. NOTHING! She's worried - will be there no presents at all?

Her investigation takes her to a mysterious box on the rooftop, which - lo and behold - houses all of the gifts! But, in classic Munsch mayhem, she becomes trapped inside, creating the biggest surprise of all for her family on Christmas morning.
