I definitely recommend this story. It teaches you a couple different things; like how to make syrup and candy. I like that the boy was good and didn’t do anything bad. One of my favorite parts is when the Iroquois attack a brick house and they talk about the defenses they used to protect themselves. I also like the ending when the parents aren’t sure if they have found their son. I would read this book again. (Book review from 10 year old boy.)

I finished this book and thought it was good. I liked the description because I could see what was going on in my mind. I also liked how it ended.

I bought this from audible. My 7 year old listened to it 3 times within a week. He loves it. I wish the reader would have pronounced the French words correctly, but story was good. I would buy it again.

My 10 & 11 yos just finished this book. My 10 yo daughter gave me a detailed, animated narrative and said she really liked it because “it was so interesting”! My 11 yo son says it was really good and fun to read. I read it awhile back and remember enjoying it as well. It is well written and I enjoyed learning more about the historical backdrop of 17th century Quebec while following an exciting story.

I enjoyed reading this book. It has line-drawing illustrations throughout that added a lot of context to the story. I thought it was nice that the main character develops a friendship with the Native Americans and learns that stereotypes are most often not true. I really enjoyed the happy ending, too. ~Kathryn (age 11)
