Secrets of Tamarind (Tamarind)

Simon, Maya and Penny never thought they'd return to Tamarind, the mystical island of adventure . . . But when a long-lost friend tells them Tamarind is in danger, they know they must go back. On their arrival Tamarind is more mysterious than ever before. There's the vanishing village of the water where people - and their secrets - hide, miraculous creatures are everywhere and where does the little blue door in the middle of nowhere lead to? As they venture deeper into Tamarind, the peril mounts - can the children save the island before it's lost forever?

About the Author

Nadia Aguiar received a BA from McMaster University in Canada and an MFA from Columbia University in New York. She worked in publishing in New York City for a number of years, and has also lived in London, but currently she lives on her own sub-tropical island of Bermuda, where she was born and raised.


Gr 5-8-In this quick-paced follow-up to The Lost Island of Tamarind (Feiwel & Friends, 2008), readers are again drawn into a magical world. After rescuing their parents on Tamarind four years earlier, the Nelson children have led a safe, if boring, day-to-day stationary life in Bermuda. Simon, especially, mourns their previous life at sea. When mysterious events hint that there may be danger on Tamarind, Maya, Simon, Penny, and their friend, Helix, an island native, set out to see if they can help. Upon arriving, the siblings are distressed to find that though the civil wars have ended, miners are removing so much ophalla (a native and magical mineral) that the island's entire ecosystem is disintegrating. A series of clues leads the children on a chase to find the mythical Faustina's Gate. If the well can be closed, the island will be saved. Lush descriptions of jungle life, mysterious creatures, and tropical cities easily enchant. As Simon wends his way through the clues to discover the location of Faustina's Gate, readers will be amazed and excited right alongside him. This is a great adventure that sets the stage for a third book in the series.-Jessica Miller, New Britain Public Library, CT (c) Copyright 2011.
