Since discovering the Canadian Flyer, a magical time-traveling sled, in Emily's attic, Matt and Emily have met fearsome pirates in Frobisher Bay, outrun dinosaurs in the Alberta badlands, and panned for gold in the Yukon. In Yikes! Vikings!, Emily and Matt have the incredible experience of joining Eriksson and his crew on their historic journey to Vinland in the year 1001. Almost 500 years before Columbus, Viking Leif Eriksson was the first European to set foot on North American soil. But will the kids' ingenuity save the day when a crew member gets lost in the new land? In this, the fourth book in the popular Canadian Flyer Adventures series, author Frieda Wishinsky weaves well-researched and accurate historical facts into her compelling, kid-friendly storytelling, while Jean-Paul Eid's action-packed illustrations situate readers in place and time perfectly. At the end of their adventure Emily and Matt share additional facts about Viking Explorers, and Wishinsky gives additional facts here too, in an informative Q&A format.

This series is similar to Magic Treehouse - which my son loved at this age. My daughter however seems much more taken with this set of books.
