Rescue on Nims Island by Wendy Orr
Published by Allen and Unwin
In this instalment Nim's island is opened up to two scientists who appear to have big plans for her little home. There is plenty of mystery and suspense as Nim tries to discover what they are up too, as well as well as help her friends when they get stuck in a cave shaft.
This book is punctuated with Geoff Kelly's lovely illustrations, and is light enough for the 7 year old emergent chapter book readers, but has enough modern grunt, including email exchanges, for a 10 year old to pick it up as a light read.
For those of you that love to read with your child at night, it is so nice to be able to escape into the secret island and fall in love with the spunky sea lion pet called Selkie.
