Carson, the dog, crosses Canada with his owner Annie Magruder to visit her sister who is sick. They begin along the Pacific. They cross the Canadian Rockies, visit Lake Winnipeg and Niagara Falls, stop in Quebec where Carson learns he is a "chien", and then cross to Nova Scotia, eventually taking a ferry to their destination in Prince Edward Island. At the end a "surprise" is awaiting him. I don't want to give the surprise away, but I will say Carson loved it. It's a book I can imagine preschoolers wanting to revisit often. I received an advance electronic copy of the book from the publisher via NetGalley for review purposes. ( )

After Annie Magruder receives a letter from her sick sister, Elsie, Annie packs her bags and sets out on a road trip across Canada with her dog, Carson. Their stops along the way include the Rocky Mountains, Lake Winnipeg, Niagara Falls, Quebec City, and Prince Edward Island. Carson enjoys the sights and smells along the way, but he's really looking forward to the surprise that Annie says is waiting for him at the end of their journey!

This book brought back happy memories of a 5th grade assignment when I planned a road trip across Canada. The brightly colored illustrations include a map of Annie and Carson's route across southern Canada. Carson reminds me of my dog, Adrian, who also has a Squeaky Chicken. I wonder if Adrian would enjoy a road trip across Canada? I'll have to see if I still have that map...

Highly recommended!
