Danger at The Landings (Orca Young Readers) by Becky Citra

I pushed open the heavy wooden door. The orange cat shot between my legs, his fur bristled, screeching in fear. Fire! The flames danced on the huge millstones and the sacks of grain stacked neatly around the walls. Strange shadows flickered in the dark corners. I edged closer to the fire, fighting back my terror. The back of my neck prickled. Lester had set the fire on purpose! He was trying to burn down Uncle Stuarts gristmill! I stared around the room wildly. Uncle Stuarts warning rang in my head. One spark and the whole mill can go up in flames. Do you know how explosive flour can be? Max longs for adventure. His sister, Ellie, of Ellies New Home and The Freezing Moon is too bossy. His father expects him to help on the farm all the time, but never gives him any real responsibility. When Maxs pig, Hambone, is slaughtered, Max is devastated and resolves to run away, to live with the lumberjacks. Instead, he finds himself bundled off to stay with his uncle, the miller at The Landings, a man who expects obedience and hard work. There, adventure finally comes to Max when he least expects it. Danger at the Landings is the third volume in Becky Citras historical series set in Upper Canada in the 1830s. Here, Becky turns to telling younger brother Maxs story. She brings to Danger the same talent for storytelling for young readers that she brought to the first two books in the series, just the right combination of details to bring setting, character and the historical period to life. In addition to her Ellie and Max series, Becky is also the author of My Homework is in the Mail and School Campout. A primary school teacher and writer, Becky lives on a ranch where horses, bears and coyotes abound and where many of the chores have not changed much since Maxs day. Danger at The Landings is the third of five books in the Max and Ellie series. Book one is Ellies New Home. Book two is The Freezing Moon. Book four is Runaway. Book five is Strawberry Moon.
