Intruders On Battleship Island (The Bayshore Mysteries)


School's out. Jeff, Mike & Dan are ready to leave homework behind and use their detective skills to find out what two mysterious men are doing on Battleship Island. The only thing slowing them down is Stanley, Jeff's cousin who is visiting for the summer.

Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The story moves forward smartly, with just enough twists to keep you reading, but no so many that you have lots of loose ends at its close.

Content Awareness Factors:

None, really. But what was that light at the Old Merritt House?

Little Kid Reaction

This is a book that many young people can relate to. It's a A good book for children in third and fourth grade. Some parts could have been better explained and there should have been more of a plot.

Parent Reaction

This one will take you back to the days when you wanted to be a junior detective. It's fun and reminds you of the things you did (or wanted to do) on your summer vacation.

Type of Book:
This is a fictional story with a sense of Civil War history that takes place on an island in Mobile Bay.
Educational Themes:

Even pre-teens will recognize the message that you need to be careful when you judge someone: you might be wrong. It's a nice story of friendship and respect.
