Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-A young Chinese-Canadian girl wants to go to the nearby town of Kapuskasing. Her father says, "No way," but Gah-Ning tries anyway, first on her bike, then on rollerblades. Both times, her father catches her and takes her home. She succeeds the third time, though, floating all the way there with the help of 300 balloons. The theme of childhood defiance (and eventual success in getting what you want) is, of course, always popular with children. Munsch mixes contemporary details with a folkloric style in an interesting but not always successful manner. On the whole, the plot is unfocused. The brightly colored, cartoon illustrations suit the story, and the illustrator plays with the design and layout in interesting ways. But even some of the liveliest scenes have a somewhat static look, and the facial expressions of the characters lack subtlety. The author's description of meeting the real Gah-ning is more intriguing than this slight story.

He taught in a variety of nursery schools and daycare centers while he earned an MA in Early Childhood Education. In 1975, Munsch and his wife, Ann, moved to Guelph, Ontario. The Munschs have three children: Julie, Andrew, and Tyya (see them all in Something Good!).

Another of Munsch's enjoyable children's books. When ordering the book online, I thought from the cover and title that it might take place in China, but it is in fact located in Northern Ontario. The family run the local Chinese restaurant, but aside from the mention of the best chicken balls in Canada, Gah-Ning's ethnicity is entirely incidental. Story of Gah-Ning's attempts to get to the shopping mall in the next closet urban center has usual Munsch hyperbole and rhythms, highly enjoyable for parents and kids alike. Art work by Helene Deputeaux is wonderful, even though we are conditioned to associate Munsch with the artwork of Michael Martchenko.

Where is Gah-Ning? is a terrific story for all ages. My 6 year old has loved it for 2 years now,and her 15 month old sister likes it too, especially when read in different voices. Gah-Ning is like many little girls, determined to get to where she wants to go, whether or not her father says no! Additionally, the story takes place in Canada, and my daughter has looked up Kapukasing on a map, and is learning about Canada and its cultures. We look forward to reading more books by Robert Munsch.

This is a childhood favorite book of mine that I now purchase as an adult to give as gifts to my nephews and other small children. Truly a fun little read about a small Northern Ontario town (which I happen to live in!) with a great price point. Can't ever go wrong with Robert Munsch!
