Phantom Ship In The Desert by Sherri Kukla

Exciting And Entertaining

Phantom Ship In The Desert by Sherri Kukla is a Christian contemporary children’s adventure novel and the third book in the Moto Mysteries series. It can be read as a stand-alone. I enjoyed catching up with familiar faces.

A mystery handed down the years is the focus as Jeremiah and Millie set out to solve it. Millie is particularly tenacious. She is head strong, always pressing forwards sometimes at the detriment to personal safety. She is also aware of her faults, asking God to help her where she is weak.

The search in the story reminds the reader that God searches for us relentlessly and with a passion until He finds us.

We are called to take care of the orphans or those who find themselves parentless through no fault of their own. Arms, hearts and a home are opened as a generational dream is fulfilled. Once more, we remember that we will always find a home in Our Father’s arms.

Ghost Lights Of Dry Brook by Sherri Kukla

Great Children’s Adventure

Ghost Lights Of Dry Brook by Sherri Kukla is a Christian children’s adventure and perfect for ages ten and above. It is the second book in the Moto Mysteries series but can be read as a stand-alone.

The reader is treated to another mystery that the three children stumble upon. Their zest for life and their inquisitiveness endears them to the reader. I find that when I am reading I am reminded of the atmosphere of the Scooby Doo cartoons from my childhood.

The children have huge hearts. They have been adopted and given their forever home and are keen to extend a welcome to other lost souls. The reader understands the desire of Millie to be the only girl and her fear of being pushed into the background. The parents are fulfilling an inherited dream to be a refuge for hurting children.

The Skeleton And The Lantern by Sherri Kukla

Likeable Young Heroes

The Skeleton And The Lantern by Sherri Kukla is an exciting contemporary Christian mystery book for children aged nine and above. It is the first book in the Moto Mysteries series.

I found the story to be well written and engaging. The reader really feels a part of the action. I found it to be reminiscent of Enid Blyton’s mystery series and the Scooby Doo cartoons from my childhood.

The action is seen from two different points of view – in the first person of older brother Jeremiah and in the third person with his younger sister Millie. The children are definitely the heroes of the story with their clarity of vision and the ability to take the initiative into the unknown.
