Full Speed Ahead: Errol's Bell Island Adventure

Reviews:

"Children are often eager to venture into the reading realm of chapter books. The challenge for an author is to provide young readers with an exciting story, a good pace and a variety of events that hold their interest. Author Sheilah Lukins achieves all of this in Full Speed Ahead...The large cartoon-like illustrations by Laurel Keating, either coloured or in gray scale, enhance the story with their attention to detail."
Janice Foster - Canadian Review of Materials, University of Manitoba Volume XXIII Number 20, February 3, 2017

"...a charming early chapter book with beautiful full-page illustrations that do a great job of breaking up the text and enhancing the story. It brushes over a range of serious topics, like immigration, mining history, geology and acceptance, without settling for too long on any of it — because more than anything, Lukins places her emphasis on telling an exciting tale. Full Speed Ahead: Errol’s Bell Island Adventure is the perfect choice for any little adventurer who’s ever wanted to know more about where they come from."
Sarah Sawler- Atlantic Books Today - December 16, 2016

The Newfoundland Quarterly - January 2004

"... [A] distinctly Canadian tale. It's easy to get swept away in the book's action...a fun romp that emphasizes how looking to the past and believing in yourself can help you chart a new course for the future. Natalie Colaiacovo - Resource Links Magazine
