Bo at Iditarod Creek

Kirkpatrick Hill; Illustrations by LeUyen Pham

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

Ever since five-year-old Bo can remember, she and her papas have lived in the little Alaskan mining town of Ballard Creek. Now the family must move upriver to Iditarod Creek for work at a new mine, and Bo is losing the only home she’s ever known. Initially homesick, she soon realizes that there is warmth and friendship to be found everywhere . . . and what’s more, her new town may hold an unexpected addition to her already unconventional family.

As with Bo at Ballard Creek, this stand-alone sequel is a story about love, inclusion, and day-to-day living in the rugged Alaskan bush of the late 1920s. Full of fascinating details, it is an unforgettable story.

REVIEWS

Praise for Bo at Iditarod Creek

Praise for Bo at Ballard Creek:

* “The disarmingly forthright tone is set right at the start . . . cheerful. Like Little House in the Big Woods but . . . more rambunctious.” —The Horn Book, starred review

 

“It’s the simple things that thrill, and Hill, born and raised in a gold-mining Alaskan community herself, infuses her text with engaging small details, while Pham’s exuberant illustrations add playfulness to the story.” —Booklist

 

“Bo is an endearing Pollyanna in a parka.” —Kirkus Reviews
