Product Details
The second in an exciting series of books for children, an action-adventure set
in the South Pacific, optioned for film/TV development!
Four children, Kiri, Jed, and twins Emma and Ethan, discover
an ‘elastic’ island that can send them pinging across the
ocean to a variety of tropical island destinations. Their last
destination spelt trouble, so this time the children are
determined to have a relaxed and safe time when they visit
Port Mugaloo on MugaMuga Island.
But Ethan falls into a pond and becomes invisible – and the
only one who can help them is King Shiny. But King Shiny has
gone missing looking for the long-lost royal treasure, so they
enlist the help of Mrs Quokka and travel across the desert on
a seven-humped camel into very dangerous territory to find
him. But have the children made a mistake in trusting Mrs
Quokka? They soon learn that quokkas might be famous for
their ‘quokka logic’ but mostly it doesn’t make any sense!
This is the second in a new series for children 8 – 12 years
old publishing in NZ, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia and
Brunei, with book three due in September 2019. The book
series has been optioned by a movie producer who is in the
initial stages of developing the first book into a feature film.
Elastic Island Adventures is an exciting, original series, with a slightly retro feel. It features a delightful
platypus in the first book, and a family of quokkas in the second book – so quirky Australian characters/animals are part of the action.
