About the story

While Robert Munsch was in Hay River, Northwest Territories, in 2004, he decided to visit Fort Resolution, a 270-kilometre drive along a mostly dirt road. A man in Hay River lent Munsch his four-wheel-drive truck for the trip. When he returned it, the man's daughter Ciara was just back from playing hockey across town. Munsch asked why there was no rink on the river at the back of the house. That question led to this story, which is the best story he made up on the trip.

A neat thing about this book is that it has been translated into Inuktitut for kids in Nunavut.
