Since discovering the Canadian Flyer, a magical time-traveling sled, in Emily’s attic, Matt and Emily have met fearsome pirates in Frobisher Bay. In Danger, Dinosaurs!, Emily and Matt are off to the Cretaceous period in the Alberta Badlands to fulfill every child’s fantasy of getting up close with a dinosaur. Maiasaura, Lambeosaurus, and T-rex, oh my! In this, the second 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 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 dinosaurs and dinosaur hunters, and Wishinsky gives additional facts here too, in an informative Q&A format.
The books are fun to read, full of adventure and provide just the right amount of Canadian history without feeling like a school lesson…Boys are sure to especially love the illustrations of the ferocious-looking T-rex chasing Emily and Matt across the pages…Highly recommended.
