    An exciting children’s adventure book

    Sibling’s Megan and Marcus are secret agents working for, ‘The Environmental Protection of World Beaches’, or EP. Their job is to save beaches around the world from devastation, and destruction. They travel the world in Parry, their grandparents beach hut. It is invisible to everyone but themselves, and can take them to any destination they need to go to, within a few minutes, (It flies). This time the children are off to Australia, to Whitehaven Beach, where the most precious sand in the world is being stolen. Their investigations take a strange turn when the culprit emerges from the water and starts eating the sand. Their thief it would seem is an enormous crocodile. But what would a crocodile want with sand? Whitehaven Beach is an exciting children’s adventure book, and the first in a series. Ms. Maisano has created young siblings, aged just 8 and 9 years old, as the main characters, and as spy’s too, going on dangerous missions. This is what makes this book appealing to children. A book about children, for children. Weaved within the story are plenty of facts about the beach, which really does exist. There is also a factual information page at the back of the book, so that the reader can learn more about Whitehaven. The writing flows naturally, with simple words and sentences used. The children are very likeable and authentic, though a little old headed, but perhaps that’s what happens when you are a secret agent!! The book is filled to the brim with drama from beginning to end, which will keep children hooked to the pages. I do have one little negative comment though, it really needed some illustrations. Illustrations are what brings a story to life for a child, they help to give the child some visual direction, and the tools to let their imagination creatively flow.
