Hott Review

Even as I’m cringing at the thought of my children spending the summer alone on an island I remember the fantasy of doing it myself when I was their ages.
This series definitely appeals to the adventurous spirits but this particular book also appeals to the unlikely reader. It’s fairly short but filled with graphics and adventure.
A terrific read for 6-12 yr olds.

*P.S. I read this on an iPad and some of the text was a bit difficult to read. If you’re planning to read this on an ereader, please, grab a sample first and make sure that the text is legible!
