Dangerous Crossings! “Highly Recommended” by CM Magazine

Dangerous Crossings! True Stories from the Edge (Annick Press, 2007) by Antonia Banyard was reviewed this week in CM Magazine, a publication from the Manitoba Library Association that provides “book reviews, media reviews, news, and author profiles of interest to teachers, librarians, parents and kids.” Reviewer Elizabeth Larssen gave True Stories from the Edge three and a half out of four stars. From the review:

Vancouver writer Antonia Banyard is sure to please readers who enjoy thrilling action and adventure stories. Her most recent effort, Dangerous Crossings!, is her first work for young readers. Although it is a little spare on Canadian content, the exhilarating stories from around the globe are sure to be a hit with boys who are reluctant readers. Each of the 10 chapters involves a completely different story, making each tale readable and enjoyable without being overly taxing. The stories are set in such varied places as Australia in the 1930s to French Guiana in the 18th century to Central Africa in the 19th century. There are exciting adventures on the high seas, in the skies and in war zones.
