Since discovering the Canadian Flyer, a magical time-traveling sled, in Emily's attic, Matt and Emily have outrun dinosaurs in the Alberta badlands, seen the Silver Dart soar high in Nova Scotia's skies, and evaded slave catchers on the Underground Railroad. In Arctic Storm, Emily and Matt find themselves stranded in the Far North in 1976. After a shaky landing, the two friends meet a team of research scientists studying wolf and caribou migration and habitat. Problem is, the scientists are traveling without their guide, they've lost their radio and half their supplies, and now a storm is coming. To make matters worse, Arthur, the son of one of the scientists, is becoming increasingly ill and needs a doctor. And, after the group is spooked in the night by howling wolves, they wake up the next day to find their lead sled dog missing! Can Matt and Emily brave the storm and help their new friends to safety? In this, the 16th 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 Patricia Ann Lewis-MacDougall's evocative illustrations situate readers perfectly in place and time. At the end of their adventure, Emily and Matt share additional facts about climate change, the Far North, and Inuit dog breeds, and Wishinsky gives additional facts here too, in an informative Q&A format.
