Caribbean Capers is an engaging tale of adventures experienced by a group of boys of varying backgrounds in St John, USVI. Their brushes with 'pirates' (dinghy thieves) and other challenges result in steps toward maturity and friendship. It would be great fun to read this book while anchored in Leinster Bay and try to retrace the young heroes' footsteps as they range along the beaches and over the hills, escaping from danger, solving a mystery and beginning the voyage from boys to men.
¿I read the book and really enjoyed it. It reminded me of the deep sea adventures I once used with remedial kids in the middle grades because of the high interest. I can't wait to read the sequels because I want to know more about the characters. I will read this book to my kids here at XXXX Elementary ¿
We finished your recently received book and found it delightful. I was particularly impressed with how well you related your story to the actual geography, topography, and structures of the island. It was almost like taking those wonderful hikes out of Leinster Bay over to Maho or over the hump to Coral Bay.
