Danny Boyle is a twelve-year-old adventurer with an imagination that knows no bounds. His uncle reveals some of his hometowns secrets – a group of people banished, houses falling into huge sink holes and more! Together with his best friend, Chip and Danny’s younger sister, Melinda the three trudge up to the caves and set out to find the banished people.
From there the adventure begins! They solve the mystery of the sink holes swallowing up houses, must fight a huge water creature that lurks beneath the black waters and escape from the Underlands! Held prisoner they must find a way to get back topside and reunite with their family. The Underlands are different and unpredictable so the children must be smart!
A delightful child’s book that is entertaining and whimsical. A well written story that is neither rushed nor slow. William Graham, author, does an excellent job of choosing words that are vivid and rich in imagery and that also invoke the listeners imagination as well. Characters are fully developed and engaging.
The narrator, Beth Bostic did an excellent job with the voices and projecting the emotions appropriate for the action. Bostic spoke clearly and confidently, gifted as a narrator she furthered the engagement of the listeners with the characters and story. I enjoyed her reading very much and look forward to hearing more from her.
This is a story that most pre-teens and young adults would love losing themselves in.
There were no issues with production of this book, it was clear.
