Robert Munsch
Rigolet and Give Me Back My Dad

Written by Robert Munsch.
Illustrated by Michael Martchenko.
Published by Scholastic Canada, 2011.

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 were tallied, the fans spoke and chose this 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 is now appearing in book format for the first time. Provided by
