Read Carson Crosses Canada Online Free - From the author of If You Happen to Have a Dinosaur comes a funny and sweet cross-country roadtrip adventure with a sassy septuagenarian and her quirky canine.
Feisty Annie Magruder and her dog, Carson, live in British Columbia, Canada, and they're setting out to visit her sister, Elsie, in Newfoundland. In their little rattlebang car, packed with Carson's favorite toy, Squeaky Chicken, and plenty of baloney sandwiches, Annie and Carson hit the road!

For example, they marvel at the beauty of the big, open sky -- and grasshoppers! -- in Saskatchewan and discover the gorgeous red earth and delicious lobster rolls in PEI, before finally being greeted by Elsie -- and a suprise for Carson!

Wonderful illustrations in this simple story about a trip across Canada. Light on the details of the places they stop, had hoped to learn more about the Canadian provinces and what they have to offer as travel destinations.

Read for my son. He doesn't like it much. Not a lot of adventures. The cover has the car, he expected there'll be car and road trip adventures but it was about the dog instead. Thanks to NetGalley for the review copy. Our opinions are honest.
