Captain Jake

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Echoes


Jake loves to hunt for treasure, so when the famous pirate Captain Kidd asks him to be his cabin boy, he can't refuse. But Jake soon learns that bringing home an invisible pirate can be a real disaster, particularly when the pirate is mortally terrified of his teenage sister. There are many rules of the sea, and Captain Kidd's own cabin boy, Richard Barleycorn, teaches Jake how to face his biggest fear, Boris Baxter, the meanest boy in the whole school.

"Fast-paced easy fiction that many boys and girls would enjoy. The theme of bullying is addressed in a simple, light-hearted yet relevant matter. Recommended."

---

"The plot of the story is very well developed for a young reader, and doesn't lend itself to sugary sweetness, but hilarious humor that readers will enjoy and relate to in their own family. This is an excellent mix of plot, theme, and character development that will push a beginning reader into chapter books without a struggle."

---

"A good beginning chapter book for younger students...Recommended."

"This easy-to-read, beginning chapter book blends fictional character with real facts...Large print, short chapters and many full page illustrations make this a good chapter book for developing readers."

Badir and the Beaver

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Echoes


It's Ramadan, a time to focus on good deeds and to fast, and Badir and his brother, Anis, are out for a walk one evening while they wait for their iftar meal. In the park Badir sees a rat. A very, very large rat. He soon learns it’s actually a beaver, an animal that doesn't live in Tunisia, the country Badir and his family have emigrated from. It turns out that some of the neighbors who enjoy the park think this beaver is a bit of a pest, but Badir thinks it's wonderful and learns everything he can about the iconic Canadian animal. When a petition is started to remove the beaver, Badir, who knows firsthand how difficult it is to leave your home behind, rallies his classmates to save it. And with a little help from new friends, the kids learn that collaboration and faith can change the way we think about the world.
