ISLAND HOLIDAY by Alice Wright


Email this review


Career book of different type, in story of the adventures of a group of young scientists who go to Bermuda to do some diving and trawling, in order to study, in their native habitual, some of the tropical fish found down there. In a way, it seems rather superficial (after the Beebe experiments in the same locale), but it is an interesting sidelight on a phase of science not previously introduced into books for young people. A lovely looking book, illustrated by Else Bostelmann. Might have a plus sale as a Bermuda book for family consumption.
