The skippers, after arriving at Cape Spear, discover seven elves who are lost in a fog, and they tell the skippers that Saint Nicolas has been abducted by vikings.

The Skippers agree to brave the storm and sail to the Strait of Belle Isle, but are quickly seized by Big Red and sent to the gangplank. That is until the captain reveals some important information about Saint Nicholas.


“While the adventures of the Skipper Dogs are more than enough to hold the reader’s interest, Stellings provides historical asides that make learning fun. This is a charming story that children will want to listen to or read again and again.”

Hamilton Spectator

“Skippers at Cape Spear is a story told in an amusing, lyrical rhyme format, filled with whimsical water colours created by Stellings. This is a book that will be enjoyed by the children to whom it is read as well as by those who read it to them.”

– John C. Perlin, The Newfoundland Book Corner
