Rigolet Children's Story Voted As Winner

The Rigolet fishing story by children's author Robert Munsch is the winning entry from an online book voting competition.

On Sunday, voting closed on three story books created by Munsch, all of which were published online by Scholastic Canada.

Approximately 20 years ago, Munsch wrote a story on a fishing trip while visiting Rigolet.

The fishing story includes two local residents, Cheryl Allen and her father Roger Shiwak.

The story was one of three Canadian stories in the running in an online competition.

The other communities in the running were: Brussels, Ontario and Fort McMurray, Alberta.
