Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Can Kelcie solve the island's TWO mysteries in time? Ten-year-old Kelcie Oglethorpe's fisherman father disappeared at sea years ago. Since then, Kelcie has befriended Bald Rock Island's beloved Mr. Bartleby, a kindly man devoted to the village and its children. He often warns of a mysterious creature he once saw on the island's bald dome which towers a hundred feet above the sea, yet is hollow inside and connected to sea life by underground channels. Kelcie decides to help Mr. Bartleby solve the island's two enduring mysteries-what happened to her father, and what the sea creature might be. She learns that Mr. Bartleby was her father's lifelong best friend. During that terrible storm off the coast of Maine, Mr. Bartleby risked his own life to do everything possible to save Kelcie's dad, but no sign was ever found. Kelcie criss-crosses the island in search of clues and thinks she knows where she can find the ultimate answers. She resolves to explore the forbidden area of the island, and as she puts the final pieces of the puzzle together, a new storm arises. Can she solve the mysteries and return to safety before the new storm claims her as the previous one did her father? And what will she do when she finally confronts the mysterious creature face to face?

The language in this children’s book is simple but beautifully descriptive. The mystery is haunting and sadly plausible. And the determined little protagonist is sweetly honest and true. It’s nice to read a new story for children where foolish choices are resolved by the wise, and not all the wisdom comes from guardian adults. Bald Rock Island is a story that inspires bravery, common sense, and a pleasing recognition of human emotion. It’s a fun tale, a captivating read, and a good story to share with a middle-grade reader.
Disclosure: The author was interviewed on my blog and I was delighted to be given the opportunity to read his book.
I did receive a copy of this book to review.
Off the Maine Coast is a schizoid island named Bald Rock, where half the land is lush with grass and trees in a lovely, pleasant, environment. The other side of the island contains enormous, and dangerous, Bald Rock, whose hollow core leads to the ocean. While the island's children play happily in the park and listen avidly to the prescriptive storytelling of Mr. Bartleby, one young girl, Kelcie, determines to unravel the island's secrets.
THE SECRET OF BALD ROCK ISLAND is a contemporary middle-grade mystery with a generous old-fashioned heart. It made me fondly reminisce of childhood favorites Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, and the Boxcar Children.
The author generously provided a digital review copy. This is my fair and impartial review. No remuneration was exchanged.
I really enjoyed this book, I wish it was longer. I read it all in a hour, and I was sad when it ended. My favorite person in the books was Mr. Bartleby. I like how it was an adventure and had a lot of action in it. It doesn't have a cliffhanger, but you know it sets up for the next books. I do hope I can read the others because this has become one of my favorite books.
