      2020-21 Hackmatack Children’s Choice Book Award — Shortlisted
      Five-year-old Pearl claims that a pirate stole the rare Blushing Diamond. But everyone’s a pirate on Halloween.

      Dogwalker Stephen Noble has been recruited to walk his five-year-old reading buddy, Pearl Lebel, to and from school while her mother is away and her father is ill. He’s sure that this will be easier than walking canine clients Ping and Pong — until Pearl locks herself in the house, runs away from home, and loses her family’s rare pink diamond ring.

      When Pearl claims that a pirate took the ring, Stephen and Renée are on the case. But the more they discover, the more it feels like everyone is a suspect. With Pearl annoying them every step of the way, will they be able to solve the mystery before the ring's scheduled appearance at the Brilliant Diamond Show?

      Fans of the previous books in The Great Mistake Mysteries series will be happy to reunite with dog walking detectives, Stephen and Renée, who are back in this fourth instalment (along with their favourite four-legged clients, Ping and Pong). Thanks to McNicoll’s narrative style, middle grade readers will identify with realistic dialogue and Stephen’s tendency to question everything and everyone around him... The real appeal of this novel is the humour and honesty of its likeable main character.

      Strategy is everything when it comes to gaming — and girls.

      Zach is used to living in a world of legendary battles, epic journeys, and life-or-death situations.

But nothing has prepared him for battling the biggest storm in Saskatchewan’s history while trapped in the local mall.

      On top of everything, Zach has finally met the girl of his dreams, but he finds himself helping everyone else stay safe while his best friend spends time with her. What Zach doesn’t realize is that love always finds its way when you’ve found the right person and are ready to risk it all to save the day.

      Two coyote friends must learn how to survive when human development threatens their homes.

      Pica and Scruff, two young coyotes, are both born in the heart of a large city. Pica has a loving family and lives on a peaceful golf course. Scruff was orphaned at birth and adopted by a mysterious older coyote named Jagger.

      Despite their differences, Pica and Scruff meet and become friends. Their friendship is put to the test, however, when Scruff learns that Pica’s family may have been involved in the death of his own family. The fragile peace is further disrupted when construction begins, demolishing the place where Scruff and Jagger live. And then Scruff discovers that there is a lot he doesn’t know about Jagger, the only parent he’s ever known. Scruff must decide whom to trust in order to survive and find a new place to call home.

      In Claire Gilchrist's richly imagined debut novel, two young coyotes, Pica and Scruff, live with their packs in a large city. As humans encroach on dwindling resources, the two coyote packs must do everything they can to survive. Gilchrist shows in page-turning detail the perils urban wildlife faces as we expand into their homes. Readers will find themselves cheering for Pica and Scruff as they search for home and forge an unlikely friendship. A must-read for fans of Pax, The One and Only Ivan, and The Crickets in Times Square.


      I totally devoured Street Shadows! Thank you so much for sending it my way. It really feels like an instant classic, and I loved getting to know more about coyotes even as I found myself immersed in Pica’s and Scruff’s journey. It’s a really terrific achievement.
