Rate this:
The old Canadian Flyer in the attic of Emily's new house looks like just another old sled. But when eight-year-old Emily and nine-year-old Matt rub the sled's maple leaf logo, they suddenly find themselves transported from the dusty old attic to Frobisher Bay. What's more, they're aboard Martin Frobisher's ship The Aid and the year is 1577! Adventure beckons, and Emily and Matt are happy to follow. Until, that is, they meet up with honest-to-goodness pirates! This rollicking, fast-paced adventure, with black and white illustrations, brings Frobisher's search for the Northwest Passage to life.

This first instalment of the Canadian Magic Tree House introduces our two protagonists Emily and Matt to us, as well as to each other. They also discover a magical red sled (the Red Flyer of the series title) in the tower room of Emilie's new house. It transports them to the deck of Martin Frobisher's ship The Aid in 1577.

As I mentioned, this series is the Canadian Magic Tree House. It is an early chapter book that is short enough (66 pages of story) and has simple enough language to appeal to the young reader. It also is an nice entry point for discussion on how the Europeans treated the Aboriginals. Cute book, almost too Canadian in its earnestness to be politically correct.

This series is similar to Magic Treehouse - which my son loved at this age. My daughter however seems much more taken with this set of books.
