- Who's a Scaredy Cat by Joan Payzant is a piece of historical fiction about the Halifax Explosion that occurred during WWI in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We recently learned about this event during a visit the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.
- The Hydrofoil Mystery by Eric Waters is another WWI fictional tale about historical figure Alexander Graham Bell and his invention of the hydrofoil. We visited the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site during a previous trip to Nova Scotia.
- Fog Magic by Julia L Sauer is a children's fantasy novel set in small village in Nova Scotia.
- The Mystery of the Martello Tower is a more modern mystery that involves a Toronto art dealer and a Martello Tower. Canada has 9 remaining Martello Towers today. We visited the Martello Tower in Saint John, NB on our last visit to Canada and may still visit another on this trip.

Canadian-Themed Summer Reading
I intentionally chose books with Canadian settings as a means of complimenting the context of our surroundings. I am pleased with the few that I found and hope to read a couple of these myself.
