Children's LiteratureChapter books for young readers are becoming more available. This title from the "Read-it! Chapter Books" series is yet another entry in this field. An organization known as Secret World Adventure Team or SWAT chooses youngsters to send on rescue missions using SWAT transporter wristbands. Dom and his friend Ella are sent to Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia, and told to meet Jason who will be riding a red bike. Their mission is to deliver some CDs to various locations in Sydney so that a special laser show can take place over the harbor that evening. Using their ingenuity and the transporter wristbands, they visit such famous landmarks as Centerpoint Tower, the Opera House, and Harbor Bridge. Black-and-white drawings are cleverly combined with photographs of Sydney's famous landmarks and activities. Terms that may be unfamiliar are included in a glossary. Kids will be attracted to this time travel story. 2006 (orig. 2005), Picture Window Books, Ages 7 to 9.
