Kids who love to read mystery and adventure will enjoy this book. This book is best for the older kids about ten years and above.
I am not a big fan of reading and I joined Kidz Review Krew so that I would force myself to read more.  But even though I don’t usually enjoy reading, I loved this book so why not give it a try.

Thank you to Fremantle Press for our review copy.  For more information on this book and where to purchase please CLICK HERE

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I was a big fan of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five mystery series and of Rider Haggard’s adventures set in Africa. When life proved frustratingly safe, I imagined intrigue and danger in the everyday. (Everyone does that, right?) Although I’d always loved story-writing, it took twenty-odd years of study, travel, work and parenting before I got down to it seriously. From a career in non-fiction, it was fun writing stuff in which anything was possible. After a few community courses, I returned eventually to the University of WA, where post-grad studies morphed into the PhD in creative writing I’m working on now.
I live near the ocean and Reabold Hill bushland with family, a cat, some bossy possums who live in the roof and the ghost of a friendly old dog. Aside from writing, I like to swim, kayak, take photos, hang out at lacrosse grounds and accost my ukulele.
