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!

To be honest I haven't loved all of Robert Munsch's recent books (still good but not as funny as his older classics), but this one is a definite throw-back to his early successes. Hilarious story and Michael Martchenko was on his A game with the illustrations (the fish faces crack me up every time I look at them). A must read for any fan of Munsch.
