The Summer of the Marco Polo

Lynn Manuel (author), Kasia Charko (illustrator)

Publisher: Orca Book Publishers ISBN: 9781551438870

In the summer of 1883 a famous clipper ship ran aground off the coast of Prince Edward Island near the home of a young girl named Lucy Maud Montgomery. Lucy Maud, who became one of Canada's most beloved writers, wrote about the grand adventure in her journals and reflected on it years later in her notebooks. The town of Cavendish was transformed by the presence of the crew, and the ship's captain stayed with Lucy Maud and her strait-laced grandparents. Lynn Manuel has taken Lucy Maud's memories and shaped them into a story that will transfix and enchant readers.
