Escape from the Island of Aquarius. Written by Frank Peretti. Published 1986.

I hadn't planned to do two of the Cooper Kids books in a row, but there wasn't a chance I was going to not do this book. This is the second in the series and my favorite out of all the books. 

In this book the Coopers travel to a mysterious island in the hopes of finding a missing missionary. Instead they uncover a cult, a murder, and an old bridge just ready to fall into a whirl pool. The bridge was the part I liked best.

In the end, in true Archaeological form, the Coopers barely escape the island which slips into the sea. I think it is time I learn how to destroy things, according the movies and books, this is a favorite pastime of Archaeologists.

I will have my new gloves up tomorrow. I was called in to work today so don't have the time right now, but plan on uploading the pictures tomorrow. 


  1. Hello, Evy! This looks like a fun series. I can't really remember the Cooper kids but the cover looks familiar. I think I may have read this at the library when I was a kid!

      I was going to reply on your blog but I cannot find it anywhere so decided to reply here so you wouldn't think I was ignoring you :)

      These are really good books. Very exciting. Kind of like Indiana Jones for kids I would say.
