"This sequel to the Scott O'Dell award-winning Bo at Ballard Creek finds Bo, younger brother Graf, and their papas leaving one Alaska mining town for another . . . this episodic novel is filled with local color." --Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

"This series is a good historical fiction alternative to the "Little House on the Prairie" books, with updated understandings of race, gender, and family." --School Library Journal

"Illustrated with robust spot art and lightly but effectively plotted, this second book about Bo has all the virtues of the first: humor, good nature, and characters and situations that are colorful without ever becoming picturesque." --The Horn Book

"The disarmingly forthright tone is set right at the start . . . cheerful. Like Little House in the Big Woods but . . . more rambunctious." --The Horn Book, starred review on Bo at Ballard Creek

"It's the simple things that thrill, and Hill, born and raised in a gold-mining Alaskan community herself, infuses her text with engaging small details, while Pham's exuberant illustrations add playfulness to the story." --Booklist on Bo at Ballard Creek

"Bo is an endearing Pollyanna in a parka." --Kirkus Reviews on Bo at Ballard Creek
