Praise for Jasper and the Riddle of Riley’s Mine:
An Amazon Best of the Month Pick for February 2017 – Ages 9-12 
A 2018 Bank Street Best Book

“[I]t’s the brothers’ struggle to survive the Yukon wilderness with its harsh beauty and unforgiving cold that will keep readers entranced.”—Kirkus Reviews
“[A] rousing historical adventure . . . Highly recommended for fans of adventure and historical fiction, or as a classroom read-aloud.”—School Library Journal

“Mash-up of clue-driven mystery, historical fiction, and survival story.”—BCCB 

Filled with witty characters, the suspense of survival, and rich period detail, this book will quickly draw in readers, who will likely appreciate both the well-crafted setting and the bond between brothers, who ultimately discover a happiness independent of the wealth they set out to find.”—Booklist 
“Jasper’s voice and Caroline Starr Rose’s writing style brought her characters alive, bursting with warmth and spirit. The rich details and historically accurate setting took me back to the era of the Gold Rush.”—Terry Lynn Johnson, author of Ice Dogs and Falcon Wild
Jasper and the Riddle of Riley’s Mine takes two brothers and plunks them right into a hair-raising journey to the goldfields of Canada. It’s a rollicking adventure, warm and funny, chockablock with bad guys and good guys, mysteries and deceptions, dangers and disasters. With courage and persistence, Melvin and the delightful Jasper discover the true meaning of riches, friendship, and family. It’s a rip-roaring tale and a romping good read. Try to resist!”—Karen Cushman, Newbery Medalist for The Midwife’s Apprentice
