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


Publisher Marketing:
Ranger is a time-traveling golden retriever with search-and-rescue training. In this adventure, he goes to Viking age Iceland, which proves to be tough terrain for Ranger to navigate. Usually it's Ranger's job to save the day before he can return to his family, but he meets a girl named Helga who rescues him more than once. And when a nearby volcano threatens to erupt and Helga's new baby brother or sister starts to come early, they must journey through ash and smoke to find Helga's father. But if Helga doesn't need Ranger's help, how will he ever get home?
