Synopsis

A young woman holds her newborn son
And looks at him lovingly.

Softly she sings to him:
"I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living
My baby you'll be."

So begins the story that has touched the hearts of millions worldwide. Since publication in 1986, Love You Forever has sold more than 15 million copies in paperback and the regular hardcover edition (as well as hundreds of thousands of copies in Spanish and French).

The author's very high-energy storytelling style—featuring lots of guttural noises, bratty-sounding dialogue exchanges, exasperated rants and drawn-out, singsong pronunciation of certain words—will quickly wear thin for those beyond preschool.

Love You Forever is sentimentality at its worst. This is not a children's story, but one that will appeal to adults who have experienced a feeling of loss as their children grow older. Munsch should go back to what he does best.

If it weren't for the image of the mother crawling on her knees and later breaking into the man's apartment, it would be a wonderful book.

The magnetism of Munsch’s powerful telling has a profound influence on young listeners. His plot twists encourage all ages to rethink the expected roles of stereotypical story characters. Unusual and thought provoking, Munsch’s stories serve as a catharsis for children as they encounter life’s challenges.
