— Appears in: Viewpoint : On Books for Young Adults , Autumn vol. 17 no. 1 2009; (p. 14)

— Review of The Unlikely Voyage of Jack de Crow A. J. Mackinnon , 2002 single work autobiography
The Unlikely Voyage of Jack de Crow, is an autobiographical account of A J McKinnon's experience in sailing and rowing a small boat from North Wales to London. In his review, Bill Wootton asks who might the potential readers be and says that those who sail may be interested in 'the aquatic parts and 'organizational tales of equipage and despair' as well as readers interetsed in 'travelogue tales'. However, he 'does not imagine that secondary students would warm to the book in droves' and feels that McKinnon's 'carefully chosen words seem to get in the way of the tale which might have been told' (14).
