... a very satisfactory adventure story ... The time and the landscape of the island are palpably authentic, as is the character of the self-reliant, determined and capable Dorrie and her warm relationship with Gah.
With a ripper plot ... and written in the jargon of the day, this is a corker yarn!
The Ghost at the Point is a gripping adventure story for children with all the elements necessary ... I particularly liked the book's setting ... this detail makes the book interesting from a historical point of view and is a good way of introducing Australian history to reluctant history-avoiders in the classroom.
