I loved this book just like I loved The Secret of Spiggy Holes. I liked the character in the book known as Mafumu. He was smart, and caught on to english well. He helped Jack, and saved his parents! I loved this book very much!!!

Back then I didn't even know what adventure means...Enid Blyton's works such as the Secret Mountain taught me th
