The Ben Tavers Novels can be read in any order and are 190-196 pages.
13 year old Ben Tavers is a daydreamer who is considered 'different' and even 'weird' by peers. Ostracized and occasionally bullied, Ben is a loner who wishes peers were as tolerant as the less judgemental elders that are his only interpersonal connection. Ben’s inner strength, tolerance and clever creativity allow him to form lasting bonds with unlikely and memorable characters during a desperate search to save a dying runaway teenage sasquatch in 2013’s ‘Yurek: Edge of Extinction’, and when battling a sinister smuggler in 2010’s ‘Smugglers at the Lighthouse’. Moosehide Books of Ontario published the two novels which can be read in any order and are available in print or electronic format.
Tackling evil, traitorous adversaries in wilderness settings that are as alien to him as a foreign country, ‘city-boy’ Ben kayaks over emerald-hued lakes, treks across remote and rugged alpine terrain and slides down the glistening glaciers of the high- mountain environment in ‘Yurek : Edge of Extinction’. He hikes the deserted, wind-swept beaches, crossing rope bridges swaying over deep chasms and sifts through the ghostly fog and swirling mist of the west coast rainforest in ‘Smugglers at the Lighthouse’. The glacial, alpine terrain in ‘Yurek’ , and the rainforest environment of ‘Smugglers’, are highlighted in the free online Teacher Guides that accompany each novel. As a recently retired educator of over 33 years, the author wanted to provide an affordable, comprehensive Teacher Guides that would be an affordable, quality resource to assist teachers with meeting the demands of today’s diverse classrooms. The Guides provide maximum flexibility and can be used to focus on over-arching themes, broad connections, chapter-by-chapter student activities or a combination of all three methods.
As the plots twist and turn to surprising conclusions, the combination of action, humour, magic and memorable characters will have special interest and appeal to boys who enjoy tales of courage, friendship and adventure.
