Most Helpful Customer Reviews
What I Thought- Hey! This is just what I asked for! I liked this nonfiction book a lot. It includes basic information about the complex sport of dogsledding, and the conditions and conditioning they go through. I like that it isn’t all about dogsledding though – the book includes other extreme sports, such as the X Games (dirt bikes, motocross, etc.), open water swimming (like swimming through the ocean over a long distance) and much more! The book also chronicles champions in such extreme sports, with portraits. The book includes explanatory illustrations throughout the sports. This is a great companion to Balto of the Blue Dawn. I love that the Magic Tree House books connect fun stories with historical events but then follow up with additional information. This was always one of my favorite series growing up. *NOTE* I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book
