AN ADVENTURE STORY FOR THE YOUNG AND THE YOUNG-AT-HEART!
The story begins with Katey and Will Longley, a brother and sister who journey to a remote island thousands of miles across the globe. After a storm capsizes their uncle’s boat near Cape Cod, the children have the misfortune to meet Captain Sharkley, a shady individual who uses them in his quest to find mystical whalebones on an island from which no one has returned alive.
Katey and Will escape the captain’s ship, along with the captain’s nephew, Bartholomew and a crew member. When they reach Whale Island, a beautiful but dangerous island with unusual plant and animal life, they uncover the island’s amazing secrets. During their island exploration, they traverse a perilous cave and confront huge Komodo dragons and other oversized animals. They eventually discover ancient whalebones which reveal incredible powers, including the ability to speak to whales, dolphins and fish. They also unearth an extraordinary discovery: a lost undersea civilization and its inhabitants, revealing a whole new world to them.
Whale Island and the Mysterious Bones, a novel for children age eight to twelve, encompasses two themes: the profound significance of communicating and co-existing with animals, and ocean inhabitants; and understanding true courage after children confront their fears.
