    One thought on “Cave of Journeys”

    1. Cave of Journeys is a darn good book. Imaginative, well-researched, respectful, and entirely appropriate for children.It's true that this book will never emerge as a serious contender to favourite pre-teen novels such as Harry Potter or Divergent. That's not the point.This book is absolutely to be savoured as a slow feast, to be given plenty of time to learn all the fascinating tidbits in this book about wildlife and aboriginal folklore. The flights of fantasy, such as flying canoe, talking tree [...]

    2. I liked the easy flow of the story, very much like how I imagined a late-night storytelling activity would be--the kind that gives you comfort as you are told about adventures out there in the wild, wild world. For some strange reason, the book reminds me of The Silver Chair from The Chronicles of Narnia--a girl and a boy accompanied by an elderly. In this book, it's Sarah, Mattie and their Afi (grandfather), whereas in the Narnia book it's Jill, Eustace and Puddleglum. This book has the same wh [...]

    3. Children are going to love this book. The book's start reminds a bit of Alice in Wonderlands. Fortunately, the plot becomes soon original, as the two girls embark on a journey of their own.The adult in me was a bit bothered by the style: it's a bit childish, and repetitive. If the previous is certainly in accordance with the audience, the latest is probably not. Even kids are going to notice the same word is used over and over. ("girls" appear about 4 times in the very first page).However, it's [...]

    4. This book was an enjoyable read and provided some interesting stories of many of the legends of our aboriginal community. The characters were recognizablee energetic younger brothere burdened older sistere dreamy stranger. Layered throughout the story were numerous accounts of giant squirrels, dancing lady bugs and talking treesl in all a fun combination.

    5. Cave of Journeys Our story begins in Iceland in 2011 with 14-year-old Sarah, her 11-year-old brother, Mattie, and their grandfather, known as Afi. On a walk, the three discover an enchanted cave. As Afi’s pocket watch spins counterclockwise, they travel back 100 years to 1911 New Iceland. Back in time, our three journeyers meet Willow Walker, a 14-year old boy, and his family, who speak Cree. Willow Walker’s family lives in harmony on the land, connected to nature and animals. When Sarah, Ma [...]

    6. This book aimed at children (the author says ages 10+) was an enjoyable well written read although I wanted so much more than it gave me. It left me a little sad. I loved the beginning that sweeps two Icelandic children away quickly with their grandfather back in time through a magical cave. It was a wonderful surprise that opened up my imagination, ready to take-on an adventure. Unfortunately once they encounter the Native American people it starts to get bogged down by lessons of naturalist pr [...]

    7. This book is a distillation of short wisdom stories or, to be more precise, ancient lore. It reminded me of Edith Hamilton’s Mythology, which is a collection of ancient tales reworded in easy to understand language for youngsters.Cave of Journeys is a book of legends and teachings, a book of knowledge. It doesn’t follow a traditional narrative. There is no easy to spot conflict-crisis-resolution arc, three-act structure, four act structure or what have you. I would fondly call it a novelized [...]

    8. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a non-reciprocal review.(There will be spoilers)."Cave of Journeys" is a very clean read with a lot of information packed into it. If you're looking for something safe for kids, there's absolutely nothing unsavory in here. This is the kind of book where the characters are constantly saying "please", "thank you" and apologizing when they do something that might be considered rude.I think another reviewer pretty much summed up the main issue the [...]

    9. The author intends to teach children around the age of ten about the sanctity of the traditions of the First Nations and the New Icelanders, especially of their cave paintings. (The main character and her younger brother are fourteen and eleven respectively.) The tone of book is too didactic for my taste. After putting myself in the frame of mind of a ten year old, I still think so although I’ll admit that I was a pretty ‘contrary’ ten year old. Magic caves, trees, animals or canoes would [...]

    10. I barely finished Cave of Journeys, and I will try my best to be honest with this book, and also focus on the many high points in it.Cave of Journeys is well-researched, and I found myself learning along with the characters. It is a very cozy read over all, that can be shared with all members of the family. It is very imaginative and the illustrations add a brilliant touch that helps the story move along. The humor on the account of Mattie also added to the story.The three stars is defined by a [...]

    11. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a non-reciprocal review.‘Cave of Journeys’ is a children’s novel tackling the topic of unspoken-for time travel. Mattie and Sarah are transported in time by accident and end up exploring the world of times past as well as its inhabitants.Urgh… That sounded wrong. To clarify, it is a perfectly innocent children’s book indeed.The author had a few ideas that will appeal to children: supernatural effects, the very notion of time travel an [...]

    12. “Cave of Journeys” is a squeaky clean book for children which explores the history of aboriginal people in Canada and their roots in Iceland.Sarah, Mattie and Afi (their grandfather) are all transported back one hundred years and have a series of adventures.A magic cave and a flying canoe are featured in the story and these are how these three are able to travel back in time to 1911.Although this is well written, the story lacks any rising and falling tension. The targeted audience is ten ye [...]
