Victoria's grandma takes her out for a special, fancy birthday lunch. But how special can a restaurant be if it doesn't serve hamburgers or tacos or PB & J? Victoria is about to find out!

Victoria's perfect birthday meal comes from a very unexpected place!

Victoria's grandmother is taking her out for a very special birthday lunch. And because it's a very special birthday lunch, Victoria's grandmother takes her to a very fancy restaurant. But because it's a very fancy restaurant, they don't make hamburgers OR chicken fingers and French fries OR tacos OR Swamp Water! What's a hungry girl to do? Maybe give the restaurant some helpful suggestions of what SHOULD be on their menu?

In true Munsch fashion, Swamp Water is an uproarious treat, which will resonate with all of the picky eaters out there . . . and the grown-ups who try to feed them.

ROBERT MUNSCH started telling stories when he was teaching in a daycare, to get the kids to settle down. Now he is Canada’s number one author for young readers with more than 80 books in print, including such bestsellers as The Paper Bag Princess, We Share Everything!, So Much Snow! and Love You Forever. Every one of his stories was first told aloud to children – and each one is dedicated to the kid who inspired the story. He is a member of the Order of Canada, has a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, and is a hero to generations of young readers. Robert Munsch lives in Guelph, Ontario.
