    The first Eric Wilson book I read, Escape From Big Muddy, was in grade six The kid who sat next to me raved about the book, then handed her copy over and told me to read it I remember taking the book home and reading it in a night Of course I read the 15th book first, but it was a great way to get myself into the series because the story was fast paced and involved the main character taking a road trip across Saskatchewan in order to solve a mystery At the time, I remember being fascinated b The first Eric Wilson book I read, Escape From Big Muddy, was in grade six The kid who sat next to me raved about the book, then handed her copy over and told me to read it I remember taking the book home and reading it in a night Of course I read the 15th book first, but it was a great way to get myself into the series because the story was fast paced and involved the main character taking a road trip across Saskatchewan in order to solve a mystery At the time, I remember being fascinated by these places and wanting to visit them when I was older I recently decided to re read the Tom and Liz Austen mysteries just for the heck of it Except this time i d go in order Unfortunately, this book didn t capture my interest as it did then of course I should ve expected this Still, i m disappointed These books always made me feel nostalgic, but now i m afraid re reading them will ruin the series for me I think i ll still read my favourite ones though

    Buena intriga, y me encanta que Tom lea novelas policiales y se inspire en autores para resolver el caso Escrito simple, f cil Tiene sentido que se mantenga como un cl sico.

    I was in elementary when Eric Wilson visited my tiny rural school It was a oil town in Northern Alberta I can still remember the waxy smell of the polished gymnasium floor For months before the assembly we had been pressured to read and enjoy his books I wasn t all that thrilled with the book at the time, beinginto books like Dracula Doesn t Drink Lemonade I remember that visit vividly and still think about it this was the first time I had met an author He shared a reading from a I was in elementary when Eric Wilson visited my tiny rural school It was a oil town in Northern Alberta I can still remember the waxy smell of the polished gymnasium floor For months before the assembly we had been pressured to read and enjoy his books I wasn t all that thrilled with the book at the time, beinginto books like Dracula Doesn t Drink Lemonade I remember that visit vividly and still think about it this was the first time I had met an author He shared a reading from a book and talked to us about the struggles of trying to get published Over and over his book was turned down by publishers His students he was a teacher at the time I believe assured him that his writing was wonderful and encouraged him to continue trying Finally someone green lighted his story and he became an author Wow My mind was blown I no longer wanted to be a witch when I grew up I was going to be an author.Twenty years later I am a vaguely aspiring writer and still find that visit inspiring I was thrilled to find a 40th Anniversary Edition of Murder on the Canadian at my local bookstore This book drew me back to my childhood the part where I was a kid forcing myself to get through the story.I read several of his books as a kid and I remember loving his later works like Vampire of Ottawa However, I ve lost track of the number of times Hardy Boys was referenced in this book and there are problems with the story There are glaringly huge logistic problems My final verdict is this edition of the book satisfied my nostalgic desire the same way that Popeye s candy sticks do wonderful in theory but terrible and chalky once you bite into it Once again, I appreciate Eric Wilson for inspiring Canadian youth to write Thank you for that

    I brought this book with me as I rode The Canadian from Toronto to Vancouver the cover attracted much attention Overall, it s a cute, quick read I can see why it appeals to middle schoolers The writing is clunky and the hero is dumber than he ought to be for his age, but the train setting was great and the ending was exciting I ll continue with the series if I can find the books in the US.

    I recently came across this novel amongst a pile of family photo albums and treasures My mother put it there for safe keeping after I got it signed in fourth grade, along with the photo the librarian took of Wilson signing it on top of my head I still remember how excited I was when Eric Wilson came to my school to do a reading and signing It was probably one of the only good things to happen through my entire elementary school career I was the only one my teacher allowed to get an autograph I recently came across this novel amongst a pile of family photo albums and treasures My mother put it there for safe keeping after I got it signed in fourth grade, along with the photo the librarian took of Wilson signing it on top of my head I still remember how excited I was when Eric Wilson came to my school to do a reading and signing It was probably one of the only good things to happen through my entire elementary school career I was the only one my teacher allowed to get an autograph, simply because I d brought my book I remember some of the other children desperately wanting autographs as well, but the teacher refused to take them back to the library to get pieces of paper signed I remember her getting angry when some of them started to cry Ah, elementary school Eric Wilson s work played a large role in my many literary escapes from it I adored and devoured every last mystery of Tom and Liz Austen Along with Harry Potter, the Baudelaire orphans and every Goosebumps character then known to child kind, the Austens were among my very favourite friends.I remember this one time, about a year after meeting Wilson, I was doing a book report on The Inuk Mountie Adventure and was so immersed in the story that I did not notice Silent Reading Time come to an end, or the passing of the first twenty minutes of the subsequent work period I remember my teacher yelling, Um, HELLO to which I coldly responded, Hi and continued to read with the book shoved awkwardly below my desk.It s memories like this that make me miss childhood Despite still maintaining my love of reading, I m rarely ever able to fully submerge myself and forget all of the bad things going on around me like I could back then So when I found this book and immediately decided to read it, you can imagine that I had high expectations Murder on the Canadian is the first novel in the Tom Austen mystery series It introduces us to young Tom Austen, a devout Hardy Boys fan and detective in training Boarding the Canadian to visit his grandparents in British Columbia for the summer, Tom is in for a lotthan he may have originally expected With a mysterious ticking package, the on board murder of a beautiful ex Hollywood actress and having to share a bunk with his annoying enemy Dietmar Oban, Tom is quick to jump through the hurdles and clues to solve the case But he might not uncover the killer until it s too lateI gave it a three star rating, not because I was disappointed, but because it was good Just good I ll keep it short and sweet, as I ve already written a book here myself and say thatkids should read these books Murder on the Canadian was exciting, gripping and made me smile with nostalgia I found the sweetest little delight in remembering small parts of the story I will be looking for the rest of the books in the series to re read as soon as possible, and fully recommend them to anyone who is interested in reading them
