Description:
A thought-provoking Ransome-inspired tale with strong appeal to adventure-loving readers in the nine to ninety-nine age bracket. Underlying its clear environmental theme is the conclusion that freedom and responsibility go hand in hand.
When a Tasmanian sailing family anchors near an old wrecked hulk in New Zealand's Marlborough Sounds, the kids discover a strangely abandoned campsite nearby, with plates of uneaten food and children's toys still visible under the cockroaches and mould. Their curiosity leads to an investigation which adds a layer of intrigue to their much-anticipated fun experiences of an unfamiliar foreign land. The Those Kids series is a linked set of stand-alone books following the camping/sailing adventures of some young Australians and Kiwis as they cope with unexpected challenges whilst learning about contemporary environmental issues along the way.
