The Official Website of Robert Munsch


On March 16, 2004, I got an e-mail from Robert McCracken. I liked his last name so much that I wrote a poem about it.

Your name has a lack in
How you spell McCracken;
Cause in there
Is used there,
No “Q” by you.
A “Q” would be lucky,
And also quite ducky;
So how about
A name change or two?
Then you’ll be McQuacken;
A name with no lack in,
And you will have
Duckies like you.
