Lost in the Snow

Canadian Flyer Adventures

By Frieda Wishinsky and Leanne Franson

From 6 to 9 | 96 pages

Since discovering the Canadian Flyer, a magical time-traveling sled, in Emily’s attic, Matt and Emily have outrun dinosaurs in the Alberta badlands, evaded slave catchers on the Underground Railroad, and seen the last spike driven into the Canadian Pacific Railway.

In Lost in the Snow, Matt and Emily are off to Quebec in the mid-1600s. There they meet Marie, whose father is about to marry one of the filles du roi, the women the King of France is encouraging to go to Quebec to marry settlers. Marie doesn’t want a new mother. Distraught, she stomps out of her house as heavy snow begins to fall. Emily and Matt race out to follow Marie. Can they find her before she’s lost in the snow?

In this, the tenth book in the popular Canadian Flyer Adventures series, author Frieda Wishinsky weaves well-researched and accurate historical facts into her compelling, kid-friendly storytelling, while Leanne Franson’s evocative illustrations situate readers perfectly in place and time. At the end of their adventure, Emily and Matt share additional facts about New France and the filles du roi, and Wishinsky gives additional facts here too, in an informative Q&A format.

The reader will not only enjoy the exciting adventures of the main characters, but also learn many interesting facts about the culture and history of New France in 1665. I highly recommend this book. - Resource Links
