Tunnels of Time - Moose Jaw Time Travel Adventure #1
by Mary Harelkin Bishop
Updated & republished by DriverWorks Ink
Instead of enjoying a school trip to the mountains, thirteen-year-old Andrea has to attend her cousin’s boring wedding in boring Moose Jaw. When she accidentally falls into one of the mysterious tunnels beneath the city, she discovers she’s travelled back in time to the 1920s and the dangerous days of underground gangsters and gambling. Can Andrea outwit the men who are forcing her to work for them in this frightening world? And can she ever find her way back to her family? This updated and republished first book of the Canadian bestselling children’s adventure series features updated language, shorter chapters for easier reading and read alouds, 12 black and white illustrations, Historical Notes, Ask the Author, and Discussion Questions.
