Adventure Island: The Mystery of the Whistling Caves
Publisher: Orion Children’s Books
Scott and Jack are prepared to be bored and unhappy when they are forced to spend their summer on a small island off Cornwall. Fortunately they meet Emily and her dog. Emily is always looking for mystery and together they all find it.
They sail out to sea to listen to the Whispering Caves only to discover they are silent. Legend has it that this indicates some trouble for the island’s castle, and sure enough some priceless treasures are stolen from the castle museum. Soon the children are investigating the crimes and they find plenty of suspects and motives.
A mystery in the old-fashioned style – right down to the importance of the victuals! An action-packed beginning to a new series.
