SECRET OF THE MAORI CAVE

Brownie, 14, and her younger brother Dunk are sent on ahead and alone to the New Zealand farm left by a great-uncle along with the directive that there is something... more valuable than gold to be discovered there. In spite of frightening noises in the night, wild pigs, bats and a fall in a pothole, the children just as interested in and anxious to protect their eventual find, a statue, an old vessel and inscribed tablets of infinite archaeological significance and tribal, acramental value... The likable youngsters keep the story animated and Miss Park, on experienced novelist, handles it with ease. The black and white linecuts by Michael A. Hampshire are not a visual aid.
