    1. Mr. Dressup was a Canadian icon and a personal favorite of mine from childhood. This biography was well written and went into detail about his life in a non intrusive way giving readers an inside look into Ernie Coombs and what made him so special. For such an iconic part of Canadian kids, I was saddened to see that more biographies of this great entertainer did not exist, I'm happy that this book exists if only to share the story of this great and gentle man.
