Read full description of the books:
Martin Bridge returns for more slice-of-life adventures in the sixth book in this widely acclaimed chapter-book series. In the first story, Gibson --- who is a lot luckier than he deserves to be --- is in Martin's group for the science fair project. Everything comes easily to Gibson, while Martin and the rest of the group are working overtime. How far can Gibson's lucky streak go?
In the second story, Martin's new bike is stolen --- and he'd only taken one ride! His Great Aunt Laverne, who's visiting, doesn't have a lot of sympathy for Martin. She thinks kids these days are spoiled senseless. But Aunt Laverne makes a suggestion that helps a downcast Martin realize the importance of volunteering his time to help kids who aren't as lucky as he is.
Join the freewheeling Martin Bridge as he gears up and down but always rides to a satisfying ending.

Read information about the authorJessica Scott Kerrin is a Canadian children’s writer who is best known for her fiction books for boys, including an eight-book series called Martin Bridge, a trilogy called The Lobster Chronicles, and two new mystery novels called The Spotted Dog Last Seen and The Missing Dog is Spotted. Literary critics from Horn Book, Kirkus Starred Reviews, School Library Journal, the Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail claim that she adds much-needed male protagonists to early chapter-book readers.
Her work has been a finalist for the Book of the Year for Children Award by the Canadian Library Association, the John Spray Mystery Award (Canadian Children’s Book Centre), The Rocky Mountain Book Award, the Manitoba Young Readers Award, and Atlantic Canada Children’s Choice (Hackmatack) Awards. Her work is also included in the New York Public Library’s Top 100 Children’s Books, the Association of Canadian Publishers’ Top Grade Canlit for Classrooms, Best Books of Exceptional Caliber by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre, Best of Books by Horn Book, the Junior Library Guild Premier Selection and the Notable Books List by the American Library Association.
Jessica’s initial bucket list included having an astronaut autograph her first book about rockets. Having accomplished that feat, she’s now added new items to her bucket list like having her stories translated into many different languages, seeing her work performed on stage or on screen, and meeting a published young writer whom Jessica helped inspire as part of a school book tour. That would be awesome!
Born and raised in Alberta, where she completed a degree in political science and psychology from the University of Calgary, Jessica moved to Halifax to study at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Upon graduation with a fine arts degree, she later completed a graduate degree in public administration from Dalhousie University. She now resides in downtown Halifax, surrounded by shipyards, fog and historic cemeteries, where she continues to build her writing career, favoring east coast characters and settings for all her work.
