Flutter flutter flutter!

 

Great White Fleet by John Henry is praised by Montreal Gazette for being a “Porthole into our passenger ship past.”

I Am Algonquin by Rick Revelle receives a sharp and insightful early review from, Canadian Materials magazine— “Revelle makes good use of cliffhangers; that is, he poses a question at the end of each chapter to pique readers' interest and lead them to read on. Action scenes alternate with quieter ones and with passages of information. Indeed, I Am Algonquin contains such a wealth of information that anyone teaching this period might consider using it as a textbook.

Everything Runs Like a Movie by John Cooper is acclaim by Owen Sound Sun-Times for “Cooper has written a fast-paced, first-person account of a crime spree, its back story, the actual event in great detail, and the aftermath, prison, parole and now, private life. It’s an absorbing slice of real crime reporting, well worth tracking down.”

Quill & Quire commends Barbara Fradkin for creating a well encompassed adventure in The Whisper of Legends. “Fradkin deftly captures the spirit of adventure in the North, and incorporates well-integrated commentary about the area’s natural resources and environmental issues.”

Researching Your Irish Ancestors at Home and Abroad by David Elliott is a recommended read by Families Magazine— “This book is a fine example of how one should up a research plan at home, and when abroad in Ireland.”

 In an early review by Quill & Quire Nancy Runstedler is noted for her luring narrative in Beautiful Goodbye— “In her debut novel, librarian Nancy Runstedler uses two fantastical elements — the occult and time travel — to lure readers into a narrative that informs as it entertains.”

Active Senior’s Digest advices any reader of Haunted Ontario by Terry Boyle to keep the lights on. “This second edition of Haunted Ontario invites the reader along through history. You might want to keep your lights on at night after this read. “

Old Man by David A. Poulsen has been nominated as a 2014 Popular Paperback Young Adults (PPYA), by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) of the American Library Association

 

It might be the approaching Canada day or the Canadian Dundurn titles, but I sense a little pride brewing! Yummy.
