The Cooper Twins Uncover Trouble in the Everglades – Secrets of the Slough
Fast moving dialog adds to intrigue and mystery of the suspense filled plot in “Double Trouble in the Everglades,” the fifth in the “National Park Mystery Series.” Mary Morgan blends her gift of storytelling with an incredible understanding of a young reader’s spirit of adventure.
The Cooper twins were selected by Twins for Life Magazine to participate with twenty-five sets of twins in the, spring break, Everglades National Park Triathlon.
Ben and Bekka’s curiosity, instinct for mystery, and tenacity for following up on clues, enable them to uncover vital information in solving an ingenious conspiracy of robbery and deception during the Twins Magazine Everglades Triathlon.
Clever extras in the book include Bekka’s F.Y.I. (For Your Information) Florida Facts, with trivia questions, facts about the Everglades’ National Park, photos of wildlife in the Everglades, and illustrations by Dawn McVay Baumer add to the enjoyment of the story.
Morgan’s wonderful alliteration, sense of humor, fascinating trivia and detailed data capture the young reader’s imagination with a balance of fiction and fact, entertainment and information.
“Double Trouble in the Everglades” is designed for readers, ages seven through eleven, and is ideal for home school assignments, public school libraries, and for fun filled family reading of all ages. Highly recommended.
A complimentary copy of the book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
