Meet the Author

Joshua Mowll has worked as a graphic artist for the MAIL ON SUNDAY since 1994. During that time he has illustrated and drawn everything from space flights, medical procedures, and airplane crashes to ancient pyramid theories, invasions, and laser-guided weaponry. Of Southeast Asian pirates, one of the plot elements in OPERATION RED JERICHO, he says, "The word pirates immediately conjures up images of the Caribbean, Blackbeard, and buried treasure. But for sheer scale and professionalism, Chinese and Southeast Asian piracy has a much longer and more notorious history." Joshua Mowll lives in London. OPERATION RED JERICHO is his first book.

    This book was okay. Ya know?

    In Operation Red Jericho, the author was not able to hold my interest through the whole book. I think the author could have gave better explanations of events in the book such as Daughter of the Sun. In the beginning of the book, it was boring when they were on the ship considering they really didn't do much. As you got more towards the middle of the book, I started getting more interested when they began attacking Sheng-Fat's island because I like adventure. This is why the book didn't interest me through the whole novel. The changes I would make to Operation Red Jericho is to be a little more clear on the characters and let us know more about what operation red jericho is. All it says is they are trying to find the daughter of the sun and attacking Sheng-Fat when you don't even know what daughter of the sun is. I feel the author could do a better job explaining the characters such as Master Aa and Chung-Fat. This is how i feel about Operation Red Jericho.

    Good Kid's Book

    Good, entertaining read about kids going through a unique adventure. The pictures bring out the imagination more as you read each chapter and get a pretty good picture of what's going on there. It's hard to find this book happened in real life, but pretty amazing if it really did.

    it was ok

    this bookk operation red jericho was not a positive experience for me beacuse mostly the whole book is about this guy shang-fat alos that the book isn't really exciting it is mostly talking about the same thing. My favorite scenes in this book was when the kids doug and becca master aa, xu, xi went to shang-fats layer and tried to free the expident from the dragons teeth. when they tried to blow up the chains that hold the teeth up guard came and tried to stop them and when that happended the kids went into this room and the whole room started to flood.My other faviorte scene was when doug and becca were going to the ship when fire works were going off i could really see them in my mine and feel the boom. If i could chane something in this book i would change i would not talk about the same thing i would talk about what will happen in the future. Also i would change the discription of the setting because most of the time the author will not talk about the setting only was is going on. i would like to see the setting and what is going on. i did not learn anything from this book. I got some experince because sometimes there would be some action and that would be exciting and fun to read. I would not recomend this to any of my friends because i think that this wouldn't be something that they would read.

    ok book but NOT great

    i did not enjoy this noval at all! it wasent something i had had an interest in. i think the biggest problem was it was very confussing! When the book starts it is introducing charecters but, in a very confussing way! At the begining of this book the auther had my attetion, but by the middle, or end i didnt have the drive to pick it up again. if i were to pick a favorate charecter it would be Becca, because i find her the least annoying and the smartest, and i got to no her the best out of all the charecters, because she rights in her jernal and you get to see what she thinks about things and her opinion on everything that happens.when Becca rights in her journal i understand it better then when the auther explains it! i would not recomend this book to my friends, because i think this book is gered towred yonger kids vs. kids my age!
