About the Book
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 brings Frobisher's search for the Northwest Passage to life.
From the Publisher
In Beware, Pirates!, the debut title in the Canadian Flyer Adventures series, friends Matt and Emily discover the Canadian Flyer, a magical time-traveling sled, in Emily's attic. The magic sled transports them back to the year 1577 where they find themselves aboard Martin Frobisher's ship, The Aid. Adventure beckons, and Emily and Matt are happy to follow. Until, that is, they encounter a crew of pirates! Author Frieda Wishinsky weaves well-researched and accurate historical facts into her compelling, kid-friendly storytelling, while Dean Griffith's evocative illustrations situate readers perfectly in place and time. At the end of their adventure, Emily and Matt share additional facts about pirate ships, Nunavut, and Martin Frobisher, and Wishinsky gives additional facts here too, in an informative Q&A format.
