Review: Action, Suspense and hair-raising can describe the book Crocodile Attack written by a wonderful author named Justin D’Ath. This book is the first in the Extreme Adventures series that will knock people’s socks off of their feet. One rainy day, and when I mean rainy, I mean pouring and pouring like there was a tropical cyclone or something, which there was but anyway, Sam Fox and his little cousin Nissa get kidnapped by a teenage robber in the middle of Cyclone Kandy. When the getaway car crashes into Crocodile River, Sam and Nissa must face one ordeal after another to survive against the incredible odds. Sam fights to keep alive and Nissa out of unwelcome jaws. When not many things work out for Sam and Nissa, Sam must push his endurance to the highest level to save both of them!

I think this book should be rewarded for its action and entertainment! I can’t tell you readers how much this book should be read by all readers young and old. They would all like it as much as I did! My favorite part was when the log they were on turned 180 degrees and how Sam had to dive in the chilly waters of the overflowing river and pull Nissa out from under. I almost started to slip off my chair that I was reading on, that was how much this book is packed with suspense. The day I got this book, I knew I was going on a crazy ride on a crazy rollercoaster! I finished this book so fast it wasn’t even funny! Anyway I still can’t believe that the robber had a shotgun and wanted to steal money from one of the smallest stores in the whole town. On a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being the worst and 5 being the best, I rate this book a 5! I also recommend this book and any book from this series to any and all ages. Oh and this was one of my favorite dialog parts in the story, “I didn’t want to die, and I especially didn’t want to be killed by a crocodile. But there was no escape.”

  1. How exciting! I looked up the author and discovered he's been writing this series for a couple of years, this being its first US release. There are 10 books so far, so there are plenty more adventures to come! The covers of the Australian editions are a bit more graphic and scary than the US ones; here's a link to the Australian edition cover of this book: Crocodile Attack cover.
