Review Quotes:
Praise for Ranger in Time:

This excellent story contains historical details, full-page illustrations, and enough action to keep even reluctant readers engaged. -- School Library Journal

The third-person narration expertly balances Ranger's thoughts between the appropriately doglike (squirrels! bacon!) and the heroic (Ranger's drive to find and protect). -- Kirkus Reviews

McMorris's richly rendered illustrations heighten the plot's many moments of danger and drama, and Messner incorporates a wealth of historical details into her rousing adventure story. -- Publishers Weekly

Readers will love following Ranger on his thrilling adventure along the Oregon Trail. What a great way to learn about history! -- Lauren Tarshis, author of the I Survived series

Ranger, the time-traveling golden retriever with search-and-rescue training, finds himself in 1912... on board the Titanic!

Everyone says the Titanic is unsinkable, and Patrick Murphy believes this most of all. He grew up near the shipyard where the magnificent ship was built and officially started working there when he turned thirteen. He's even been chosen to be part of the crew during the Titanic's maiden voyage! Ranger meets Patrick before the ship sets sail, and once on board, they befriend Maryam and Hamad. But one night, the ship hits an iceberg and starts to take on water. It's a race against time for Ranger and his friends to help get as many passengers -- including themselves -- off the ship before it's too late.
