What a great book for kids. I love the cover and art work inside. The story is fun, fast paced and realistic. Kids in the city will relate to the situation of a good friend moving away. The idea of a step- father is very contemporay and many kids often wonder if he will measure up as a Dad. Ms Acheson has written a book all kids will enjoy; grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbours children etc. etc.

The Cul-de-Sac Kids by Alison Acheson
The Cul-de-Sac Kids, a first chapter book for 7 and 8 year olds, is one of those rare gems, a children's book with droll, understated humour, an unerring sense of child logic, and a plot rife with just enough pathos and suspense for that age group to handle. Full disclosure: Alison Acheson edited my recently released chapter book for an 8-10 year old readership and I can vouch that she is just as good an editor as she is a writer.

As I seem to have gone over

It might be kind of a cheat to call this book middle grade, because it’s really more akin to a very early chapter book. It’s very short (I read it in about 30 minutes) and peppered with black and white illustrations so it’s obviously aimed at a pretty young audience. The author Alison Acheson (who was my prof at UBC) autographed my copy to my daughter who is 8. She read it once and then picked it up and read it again that’s a good sign. There are a few things to recommend this book. One, it’s on ...more

I live and write and teach in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, where I was born and grew up with three brothers. I now have three son. I suspect this is why quite a number of my stories are written through the eyes and minds of boys.

In this particular corner of the world, ocean and river meet, which is why it’s called Delta. My part of the delta is Ladner, and it’s an oddly prairie-like pie
