About the Author

Canadian writer Louise Dearden was bitten by the travel bug on her first trip to Europe as a child. At the age of 17 she left Canada to pursue adventure in the U.K., where she lived and worked for fifteen years, visiting mainland Western Europe, particularly France, as often as possible. She has resided in Ontario for the past ten years with her husband and two children. When she is not pounding away at her keyboard, Louise can be found working in her garden or traveling throughout Ontario and Quebec.

Format: Paperback
We needed to take our grandaughter to Ottawa for Canada Day and I spotted this after a Google search. Because I visit Ottawa often on business trips, I know the city well, but the previous visits with grandchildren had been with three boys and we needed fresh ideas for a girl of 10. This is comprehensive listing of places and things to do, but it is now becoming dated. Phone numbers are often wrong. For example, the tour of haunted Ottawa (which is wildly popular - apprently dead politicians keep hanging around in the afterlife!) listed a phone number that was no longer connected. We assuumed that this attraction was no more, and then bumped into the kiosk on the street. The book did identify attractions of which I was unaware such as the RCMP stables and the Canadian Agricultural Museum (which is brilliant for kids that love animals). Some of the recommended restaurants are no more and we found this part not useful. So this is a good guide to possibilities, but then use directory assistance and the web to get current information.
