A lively narration of this wonderful story, which won Scholastic's Pick-A-Munsch contest!

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 fun story was written by Robert Munsch 20 years ago, after he visited Rigolet, Labrador and spent a great day fishing with a girl named Cheryl and her dad. In 2010, Scholastic Canada launched a Pick-A-Munsch online promotion, asking fans to help select the 30th story by Robert Munsch that they would publish. After 8 weeks and 170,000 online votes cast, this charming story about a girl and her dad was declared the winner!
