Full Speed Ahead: Errol's Bell Island Adventure

The story of a small mouse on a big boat (well to him anyway). Errol’s Bell Island Adventure is a ‘first chapter book' for ages 7 and up. A story full of narrow escapes and dogged determination, it’s ‘full speed ahead’ for this intrepid rodent.

Coming Up:

I may be coming to your school in the new year if you live in the St. John's area and I will be reading at the Pouch Cove Library in January. See you there! If you already have a copy of Full Speed Ahead,, bring it and I will sign it for you.

When I wanted to learn more about Bell Island and the mines, I read Gail Weir's book The Miners of Wabana - The Story of the Iron Ore Miners of Bell Island. This book is available from Breakwater Books.

Gail also has a fascinating webpage started on the history and heritage of Bell island. Check it out at
