I thought my daughter would be bored with this book, that maybe it was to long for her. But she remained captivated clear to the end. When I asked her how she liked it, she said it was good but kind of sad.

This is a fairly realistic book I think about fires on the prairie and the way life was when this took place. I thought it was very well written and the illustrations were also very nice.

The grade 3 students to whom I annually read this book as part of an early settler unit love this book. The illustrations are lovely and the message about how a boy becomes a man, playing an important role during a fire is powerful.

Marilynn lives with her husband in Edmonton, where, after graduating from the University of Alberta, she worked as a reporter
