Don't Go Out There After Dark!

Oh...sure. Snake Island might not look like much during the daytime. 

But what about after dark? After's a whole different story.
This book is a great summertime read for middle grade kids 8 - 13. Even adults are drawn to the exciting adventure, heart-pounding action, and courtroom drama.

Must Read! I absolutely loved this book. It kept me on my toes. I kept wondering what the boys would find on the island. Then I wondered what kind of danger they would find themselves in. One thing about this author's books is that they are not only filled with adventure, but also have some sort of mystery to them. This is a must read book.

Another great one by Max Elliot Anderson--a middle-grade mystery reminiscent of the old Hardy Boys mysteries. Five stars.

This one is about a group of four 12-year-olds who decide to spend the night on a spooky island near one of them's grandfather's farm. In their wildest dreams the boys didn't expect this level of scariness!
