5 Star REVIEW~~**THE MYSTERY OF WHALE HOUSE"~Author/Illustrator HENDRIK VAN OORDT**
~~Genre: Young Adult Adventure
"MYSTERIOUS, THRILLING, AND ENTERTAINING!"
Hendrik Van Oordt, author of nine books and illustrator, delivers a mysterious adventure that entertains, from beginning to end. Three young teenagers are sent off to live on an Island with their aunt and uncle, while their parents deal with moving. Frank, Dana, and Martin were not happy about the decision, or getting adjusted to a complete different lifestyle. To make matters worse, they found nothing that interested them to grab their attention, until they heard rumors about 'Whale House.'
They became curious to find out if the story they heard had any truth to it, anxious to see a mad woman and her son in the huge Gothic house, when a sudden storm began to brew, and the children wind up inside the creepy monstrosity. Frank, Dana, and Martin had no idea what they were in for, after discovering a hidden secret.
The children must embark on a quest as they face many challenges in order to escape, but will they survive, and be set free? The story is mysterious, exciting, and suspenseful as the colorful characters come to life. "THE MYSTERY OF WHALE HOUSE" is as captivating as The Goonies, as thrilling as The Monster Squad, and as entertaining as The Lost Boys. Enjoyable, and highly recommended to young adults!
