"The Secret Underground" by Natalie Bahm
While I found this story very interesting and know that upper elementary aged readers would find the story fascinating, I am having a difficult time giving it a completely favorable review. Throughout the story the children lie or are deceptive to their parents, teachers and friends. They are involved in some very dangerous activities that could have led to devastating consequences. The parents in the book are unengaged with their children and in the end the consequences for the kids’ behavior does not match the seriousness of what they have done. I wish I could have given a more positive review. (rev. J.LaTour)
