Give Me Back My Dad!

Cheryl and her dad go ice fishing, but the fish at this spot are very clever and can be quite tricky to catch. Cheryl is sure she’s smarter than a fish, though, and decides to try her luck out anyway. When Cheryl gets tricked, it’s up to her dad to save her. Who will win the final battle — the fish or Cheryl? This title is also available in French as Rends-moi mon papa!

Description

After almost 170,000 votes tallied, the winning story of our Pick-A-Munsch contest is here!

In Fall 2010, Scholastic Canada launched a promotion that allowed young readers to help select the story by Robert Munsch to be published as his 30th book with Scholastic Canada. After close to 170,000 votes tallied, the fans have spoken — here are the details of the winning story:

Cheryl and her dad go ice fishing, but it turns out that the fish are pretty smart. They are trying to catch the people right back! In the end, Cheryl and her father bring home something really good . . . and it's not a fish at all!

This story was inspired by a young girl in Rigolet, Labrador. Twenty years ago Robert Munsch went ice fishing with a girl named Cheryl and her father, and this story was born. He has performed it live for many years now, but it has never appeared in book form before. Scholastic Canada is proud to bring this wonderful, whimsical tale to young readers everywhere!
