Since discovering the Canadian Flyer, a magical time-traveling sled, in Emily’s attic, Matt and Emily have outrun dinosaurs in the Alberta badlands, seen the Silver Dart soar high in Nova Scotia’s skies, and evaded slave catchers on the Underground Railroad. In Far from Home, Emily and Matt land on a ship on its way from London to Pier 21 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. They meet Kate and her younger brother John, Guests of War coming to Canada to escape the German bombs in London, who are very sad about being separated from their parents. As they are about to dock, Kate can’t find John anywhere. She is desperate. Kate promised her parents that she would take care of her little brother. Emily and Matt help Kate search the ship for John, but will they find him before the ship heads back to England? In this, the ninth 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 World War II and the Guests of War, and Wishinsky gives additional facts here too, in an informative Q&A format.
