“Twins André and Lucas love living by Cavendish Beach on Prince Edward Island–especially when they get to help Mr. Arsenault collect seaweed with his horse, Thunder. But when Thunder gets hurt by a mysterious object in the ocean, the boys know they need to turn to another passion of theirs: solving mysteries. With Lucas’s brain and André’s courage, the boys always solve their cases, and now they have their eye on the hostile Mr. Prune…

WATER HAZARD, the second RED DUNE ADVENTURE, is a funny, exciting, and action-packed book for young readers.”
