Many children have fantasies about cave exploration, magic and catching bad guys. The Secret of Sinbad’s Cave takes you on a mystical journey to satisfy anyone’s fantasy, since the story is suitable for any age group!
Nat, Jack and Kathleen’s adventure began with the dismissal of the school holidays. They arrived at their father’s farm only to learn it was to go on the market the following week because it hadn’t been making money for a long time. Nat and her siblings were devastated. The farm was an important part of their life. It was their home. Kathleen, Nat’s younger sister was especially upset when she learned they would have to sell the horses too. The children had two more weeks to go on adventures at the farm and they planned to take advantage of every minute.
I admired Nat’s character. She’s adventurous, brave and a trueborn leader. Kathleen and her antics led Nat and Jack to a treasure map from the 1800’s. Teaming with their neighborhood friends, a Maori girl named Riki and two other boys, the children devise a plan to find the treasure.
With an exciting mystery to solve and the quest to save the family farm, the children set out on a secret mission. The roller coaster ride of events kept me on the edge of my seat. The adventure turned out to be more than the children bargained for when they realized they were not the only ones seeking the treasure. While reading this tale of cave exploration and mystical fantasy, I found myself cheering the kids on with each milestone they conquered.
I would recommend The Secret of Sinbad’s Cave to anyone of any age seeking entertainment and high adventure.
