Since discovering the Canadian Flyer, a magical time-traveling sled, in Emily's attic, Matt and Emily have met fearsome pirates in Frobisher Bay and outrun dinosaurs in the Alberta badlands. In Crazy for Gold, Emily and Matt fly to the Yukon. It's the late 1800s, and gold rush fever has taken hold. But as Emily and Matt soon find out, the quest for gold is difficult and dangerous. First, they must make the long and grueling climb up an icy mountain. Then, they must survive a perilous trip by boat down the rough Yukon River rapids into Dawson City. It's a test of strength, bravery and quick wits. Will they find gold or lose their shirts? In this, the third book in the popular Canadian Flyer Adventures series, author Frieda Wishinsky weaves well-researched and accurate historical facts into her compelling, kid-friendly storytelling, while Dean Griffith's evocative illustrations situate readers perfectly in place and time. At the end of their adventure, Emily and Matt share additional facts about the Klondike Gold Rush, and Wishinsky gives additional facts here too, in an informative Q&A format.

This series is similar to Magic Treehouse - which my son loved at this age. My daughter however seems much more taken with this set of books.
