Overview

***CANADA BOOK AWARD WINNER******BRUNEAU FAMILY AWARD FOR CHILDREN'S/YOUNG ADULT LITERATURE LONGLIST***

Errol the adventurous little mouse takes to the sky when he meets a young girl, Natasha, playing with a toy airplane. Later, when Errol is left alone, he decides to fly Natasha’s toy plane and begins a magical journey that takes him back in time to one night in 1940. He meets up with Dan, a radio operator on a full-sized Hudson bomber, and gets to accompany the crew on their late night, top-secret flight across the Atlantic. When an enemy plane appears over Ireland and threatens the safety of crew and craft, only Errol can save them from disaster.

Sheilah Lukins

Sheilah Lukins has written three non-fiction books for adults and two children’s books. The first book in her “Errol’s Adventure” series, Full Speed Ahead: Errol’s Bell Island Adventure, won the 2018 Bruneau Family Children’s/Young Adult Award and its follow-up Flying Ace: Errol’s Gander Adventure was longlisted for the award in 2020. Having travelled the world and had many adventures of her own, the author believes that the most important part of an adventure is who you meet, how you can help, and what you can learn from it all. A lover of history, horses, dogs, good food, and great stories, she lives and writes in St. Philips, Newfoundland with her husband and several garden mice.
