secrets of the swamp

Three brothers are supposed to go to a mangrove swamp to take pictures of horseshoe crabs for a school project, but they get lost and end up on a dark, mysterious journey of a lifetime. In this humorous tale full of twists and turns, Alfie, Pacey and Luke discover secrets of the swamp: up-close encounters with wildlife big and small, a spooky house and an underground staircase, plastic birds in a future world – and a strange little man with an ingenious plan. A quirky tale where Enid Blyton meets George Orwell, Secrets of the Swamp is a rollicking kids’ adventure story that gently emphasises the importance of encouraging children’s relationships with nature and our shared responsibility in nurturing the natural environment around us.
