Short Story Monday is hosted by John over at the Book Mine Set.
Gah-Ning announces to her father that she wants to go on a trip to Kapuskaing. Her father threw the food he was preparing up in the air and said, "No. When people go to Kauskaing they spend hundreds of dollars."
After awhile Gah-Ning hops on her bicycle and starts pedalling down the road to Kapuskaing.
Her father went to tell her that it was time for lunch but she was nowhere to be found. Her mother said that5 she saw her earlier on her bicycle. Her father put two and two together and figured out that Gah-Ning was going to Kapuskasing. He got in his car and went to find her and brought her home.
Later he went to find Gah-Ning to tell her it was time for dinner and her father went to tell her, he found out she was roller blading. Again, he figured she was going to Kapuskasing.
Gah-Ning finally did get to Kapuskasing but, you'll have to read out how.
Robert Munsch is a master children's book writer and this book does not disappoint. The illustrated are excellent! Very vivid and colourful. At the end of the story Munsch writes about how the story came about. It is based on a little girl who wrote him a letter. Her name, Gah-Ning. This is a delightful children's book to enjoy together with your child.
