Arthur Moore's Stranded in Snow Shoe is the prequel to Summer of Two Worlds. Scot Robinson is a gentle boy who has an unexpected experience. His mother is in hospital, while his father is trying to establish himself in a new job. His dad sends a letter to Uncle Hank, asking him to take care of the boy for a while. Scot travels unaccompanied to visit his uncle, trusting that there will be no setbacks. However, Uncle Hank does not know about the visit and was not there on his arrival. In addition, the uncle is also facing complicated circumstances. Scot ends up in a place where he doesn't know anyone and is at a loss to know what he can do to remedy the situation. Fortunately, Scot receives a warm welcome from Jay Miller, a locomotive engineer, who helps Scot look for Uncle Hank. This story shows us that friendships can be easy to establish and that family togetherness is important.
Scot is a boy who makes friends easily. He finds himself in a place where everyone is kind and does everything possible to help. I liked Stranded in Snow Shoe because it's a story based on sound principles. At the beginning of the book, Arthur Moore shows readers some pictures to help them get to know the characters. I found those to be charming, and they help you visualize the story more easily. The descriptions in this narration are also clear and concise. The story takes us back to a time in 1880 when people's work was highly valued. I recommend this book to young people who want an enjoyable read with a touch of adventure.
