Most of her books are gears towards the Grade 5 and up age range.

For parents of boy readers who find it hard to locate male main characters, Connie Crook has provided some strong and exciting leads in her stories – including George in Flight, which follows the story of British Loyalist families during the American Revolution.

One homeschooling family reports that they “really, really enjoyed” this author.
