Abby: Into the Dragon's Den by Pamela Walls (Published by Tyndale Kids, September 20, 2001)
This is the sixth book in the South Seas Adventures series. This series is about the adventures of Abby Kendall, a young teenage girl, and her family and friends as they travel the South Seas in the late 1840s.
Fourteen-year-old Abby Kendall and her family and friends are sailing through the Indonesian islands when they spot a peaceful little uncharted island. They decide to stop for a rest and to gather supplies there, and on the island meet Sulia, a native woman, and her eleven-year-old granddaughter, Paloa. Abby and Luke befriend Paloa and explore the beautiful jungles of the island. But the island is deceptively peaceful, with many dangers lurking, including giant lizards that remind Abby of dragons, powerful earthquakes, and a simmering volcano that threatens to erupt.
This book is another exciting adventure featuring Abby and her family and friends. I loved the unique setting of an Indonesian island, and as always the likable characters were very fun to read about. I recommend this book to readers who enjoyed the first five books in the South Seas Adventures series, and for new readers who think the series sounds interesting, I recommend starting with book one, Abby: Lost at Sea.
