I guess it finally makes sense why his books are so friggen crazy. It’s great to know that we give drug addicts the Order of Canada.
But in an interview with Global Television aired Saturday, Mr. Munsch admitted he is a recovering cocaine addict and alcoholic, adding he has been clean for about four months.
He moved to Canada in 1975 and four years later wrote his first book titled Mud Puddle. He’s since written more than 50 books, including some best-known titles like Love You Forever and The Paper Bag Princess. His latest books are Down the Drain and Roar, published in 2009.
He has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide.
Mr. Munsch was made a Member of the Order of Canada in 1999 and was inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame last September.
