books: children's fiction; ALFRED KROPP III - THE THIRTEENTH SKULL by Rick Yancey ***.

Byline: by Lorne Jackson

ALFRED is a pint sized Indiana Jones, rattling through ripping yarns involving lost artefacts.

The lad's first adventure involved a thrilling search to find King Arthur's Sword.

Now Alfred's back, and he's looking for a mysterious object called the Thirteenth Skull.

But while Alfred searches, he's also being hunted by a shady organisation...

Although not quite Young Bond or Harry Potter, the antics of master Kropp will appeal to teenagers looking for adrenaline fuelled entertainment.

Alfred isn't quite 'The Great' - but this latest instalment of his adventures prove he isn't far off.
