The book reintroduces Jack (the bird lover) and his sister Lucy-Ann (a bit on the timid side). They are orphans who are informally adopted by Mrs. Mannering because of their friendship with Mrs. Mannering's children and because of her great fondness for them. Mrs. Mannering's children are Philip (the animal whisperer) and Dinah (squeamish about animals, but level headed and independent). The cast is rounded out by Kiki, Jack's pet parrot and the comic relief in the books. The children's ages range from 14 for Jack and Philip to 12 for Dinah and 11 for Lucy-Ann.
In each book the two sets of siblings find themselves on school vacation with Mrs. Mannering, (and by this book also with Bill Smugs - Mrs. Mannering's friend and a member of an unspecified British secret service). Each book starts out with the family going on a simple, relaxing holiday, (here it's Easter in Scotland), but mystery, suspense and skullduggery always rears its head about three chapters in. The books feature islands, castles, underground rivers, subterranean tunnels, spies, smugglers, assassins, and other neer do wells.
In "Castle of Adventure", the children are staying at a cottage in the Highlands. From there they can see an abandoned castle high above at the end of an inaccessible road. After meeting a local girl and learning of a secret way to the castle all sorts of mysteries are uncovered and adventures undertaken.Read more ›
