The first book in Helen Moss’s Adventure Island series begins with Scott and Jack Carter arriving at Carrickstowe Station, about to go over the causeway to the tiny island of Castle Key.
The two brothers think they are in for the most boring time ever but when they run into Emily Wild ( literally, they were being chased by bulls ) they soon find out that they’re wrong.
Emily takes Scott and Jack to see the Whistling Caves in the cliff below Key Castle and they are getting Emily’s boat, Gemini, ready when they see fisherman Bob Trevithick, aka Old Bob. He tells Emily and the boys about an old legend, “When the whistling do cease, the castle shall know no peace!”. They set off but when they arrive they can’t hear anything.
Very soon a centuries old Saxon shield is stolen from the museum! The boys, Emily and her dog Drift Decide to investigate and soon they have got a “Prime Suspects” list (Pete Morley, Victoria White, Mr Piggott, Mrs Loveday and two security guards).
This is a fantastic book, and I would recommend this book, along with the rest of the series. If you want to find out who really stole the Saxon shield, you can Buy it here…The Mystery of the Whistling Caves
