The story of a small mouse on a big boat (well to
him anyway). Errol’s Bell Island Adventure is a
‘first chapter book' for ages 7 and up. A story
full of narrow escapes and dogged determination,
it’s ‘full speed ahead’ for this intrepid rodent.
I may be coming to your school in the new year if you live in the St. John's area and I will be reading at the Pouch Cove Library in January. See you there! If you already have a copy of Full Speed Ahead,, bring it and I will sign it for you.
When I wanted to learn more about Bell Island and the mines, I read Gail Weir's book The Miners of Wabana - The Story of the Iron Ore Miners of Bell Island.
This book is available from Breakwater Books.
Gail also has a fascinating webpage started on the history and heritage of Bell island. Check it out at www.historic-wabana.com
