THOSE SNAKE IS­LAND KIDS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - BOOKS -

Writ­ten and il­lus­trated by Jon Tucker Forty De­grees South Pty Ltd, soft­cover, $ 19.95.

WHILE well- writ­ten books that tackle the tough is­sues serve a very im­por­tant role in chil­dren’s and young adults’ lit­er­a­ture, it is also in­cred­i­bly im­por­tant to recog­nise that some­times, kids just want to im­merse them­selves in a good, old- fash­ioned ad­ven­ture story. Former teacher- turned ad­ven­turer Jon Tucker de­liv­ers one in spades with his sec­ond novel. Tucker has pro­duced a real ad­ven­ture yarn set in the wa­ters off Tas­ma­nia’s own Bruny Is­land. There’s plenty of sail­ing and mess­ing about.
