From Library Staff

Another glimpse of Ottawa’s past, this time set during the summer of 1962. Rex, a funny ten- year-old transplant from Vancouver, gets to know his new city, makes new friends and learns more about his father’s experiences fighting in WWII, all under the shadow of the Cold War.

Though written for a younger audience, I enjoy the Rex Zero stories and remember my youth and relate to events, thoughts and feelings at 10 and 11 years old; and I am a fan of Wynne-Jones' writing style and creative stories.
