This is the story of a young mouse named Errol who takes a ride on a ferry and visits the mines of Bell Island.

Errol’s best friend Old Rat, has told him wonderful stories, about how the mice and rats first came to Newfoundland as stowaways on the big sailing ships. Errol longs to have his own adventure but his parents are unhappy when he strays too far from their garbage box home. Errol, however, is a mouse on a mission and early one summer morning, he decides to follow his dream. A tale of narrow escapes and dogged determination, it’s Full Speed Ahead for our intrepid rodent. Errol’s Bell Island Adventure is a first chapter book for ages 7 and up.

“Peppered with shipping terminology and Newfoundland trivia, young readers will likely not realize how much they are learning as they zip through this distinctly Canadian tale … 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 Colaiacova, Resource Links
