Packed with danger, survival skills, peculiar characters, and tight-yet-thrilling plots, Cabin Creek Mysteries hits at the perfect level for the early chapter book set - and boasts classic boy appeal.
Action! Intrigue! Cliffhangers!
With a riveting overarching series storyline and a mini-mystery in each title, Cabin Creek gives readers what they crave: immediate answers AND ongoing suspense. Every book reveals clues, adds layers, and finds the characters investigating, plotting, and unraveling clues. They'll need their wits, their courage, and their gadgets to get to the bottom of the many mysteries of Lost Island.
Jeff and David's dad told them they weren't allowed to explore Lost Island until Jeff's twelfth birthday, and they should never go alone. (cont.)
Gr 3-5-Cousins Jeff, David, and Claire have another mystery to solve when a young camper disappears at Skull Cliff in this suspenseful title (Scholastic, pap. 2008) by Kristiana Gregory. According to popular legend, anyone who explores Skull Cliff during the full moon goes missing. Was a camper a victim of this curse or was he kidnapped? There are plenty of clues that lead the police to think that the boy was kidnapped, but as the cousins investigate on their own, they become convinced that Willy is hiding. When they last saw him, he was only wearing shorts and flip-flops and was not prepared to spend days in the woods on his own. Will the cousins be able to find Willy in time? In this multi-reader production, each character has a distinctive voice, and the main narrator uses vocal pacing brilliantly to increase the suspense and to indicate a slowdown in action. An excellent choice for classroom use.-Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin Country Library, Minnetonka, MN Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
