But danger lies all around as they follow their quarry to the mysterious Shark Island …

Reviews of The Sands of Shark Island

'There must be something about taking to the high seas, and writing for children, that has brought Alexander McCall Smith back to his best. The book bounces along charmingly' – Press and Journal, Book of the Week; 'A lively adventure with an unusual setting' – Julia Eccleshare, lovereading4kids.co.uk; 'Beautifully written … This is a book we would strongly recommend to those looking for a story to read to their children or grandchildren, or for a book for slightly older children to read for themselves' – Undiscovered Scotland; 'Exciting without being scary, this had me wishing I'd spent my schooldays on board a ship setting sail for the Caribbean!' – 4.5 STARS, The Book Bag
