Description:
Ryan and Kendra have come to Maple Harbour on the BC coast to spend their summer holidays with their aunt and uncle. They're expecting a leisurely holiday swimming and playing on the beach with their cousins Claire and Nathan. Claire, however, has other ideas - exploring islands in her sailboat and searching for sunken treasure. But what's hidden on mysterious Whalebone Island? Have the four of them come across a secret that others don't want discovered?

Children aged eight to twelve will love this classic tale of adventure that recalls an earlier era of outdoor fun, leisure, and independence. In today's over-scheduled society, Adventure on Whalebone Island stands apart for its celebration of the childhood joys of exciting outdoor exploits away from technology and the watchful eyes of parents. Filled with striking illustrations, Adventure on Whalebone Island is already a favorite of children, parents, and teachers alike.

Review - The book follows classic children's adventure story lines... a fun book for children under 12. - Jan Degrass, Coast Reporter

Review #2 - Adventure on Whalebone Island may be favourably compared to those (Arthur Ransome) classics, incorporating the key elements on the coast of British Columbia. - Audrey Driscoll, audreydriscoll.com
