The Secret of Sinbad’s Cave

by: Brydie Walker Bain

Genre: Middle School  MYSTERY

At first I wondered how  Ms. Bain knew so much about the caves in this book until I read where she lived and that told me all I needed to know. Need an adventure? Dive in and find the excitement. It begins with something even I, as a 44 year-old wife and mother of two (ages 12 and 14), would love to find one day.

What child or adult for that matter would not like to find a secret passage or hidden room in their own house? Things like this have always fascinated me. It adds to the adventure and mystery of the story. Take six adventurous young minds and set them loose with what is found, along with some amazing legends. The next thing you find is high adventure, mystery, and danger lurking around every turn. Throw in a few magical beings or incredibly “insightful” adults and the next thing you know . . .

Well I won’t give that away. I’d hate to ruin the story for someone. It’s kind of like a movie you really want to see and someone ruins the ending for you. So I will just say, read the book for yourself. It is a great middle-school mystery.

The comradery of the children in this book is what I find to be my favorite part. Although I like the story–there is no story without the characters. They are what makes this one so good.  Nothing better than a group of friends with the same goal in mind and ready to do anything to get there. Thank you Ms. Bain for sharing your book with me and treating us all to the legends of Sinbad’s Caves!
