If you ever wondered what it would be like knowing mythical creatures in person- not dragons and unicorns, but creatures like the Loch Ness Monster and the South Florida Skunk Ape, then “Creature Keepers and the Hijacked Hydro-Hide” might just be the book for you. Peter Nelson and Rohitash Rao successfully managed to create an exciting adventure in which two children, Abigail, who is 14, and Jordan, who is 12, find out about some family secrets. This book is good for 4th graders and up, as it is 40 chapters long. If this isn’t enough, you can always read the next books, as this is the first book in a series.
The Grimsley family goes on a trip to fix up an old house that was passed down from Jordan’s grandfather. The two children, who, unlike their parents, practically live their lives on computers, become bored, but fortunately they don’t stay that way for long. After managing to escape his chores, Jordan finds a large hole in the hedges outside and begins to explore it. As he wanders through a passageway, he stumbles across a secret he never expected…
“Creature Keepers and the Hijacked Hydro-Hide” is a great book to read in one’s free time, and is an enjoyable book. Fast paced and full of secrets, the words truly bring the story to life. Despite the story being about protectors of mythical creatures, the characters are very well made and understandable (although the parents’ personalities are very different from that of the children, which is odd, but adds to the storyline). Will this family full of secrets be able to protect the mythical creatures that hide among their own house?
