Here’s what new for the Wildlife Warriors: Bindi joins her family at the extraordinary Steve Irwin wildlife Reserve in the Cape York Peninsula. So when Bindi and her brother Robert stumble upon a mysterious campsite, they decide to check it out. Are the campers in trouble—or up to no good?
My take: I used to love to watch Stephen Robert "Steve" Irwin (22 February 1962 - 4 September 2006) on his show, The Crocodile Hunter, and was devastated when he passed away. So I am just tickled that his daughter is carrying on his legacy; though I can hardly believe little Bindi is 14 already (as of last month).
I was asked to review the latest book in the Bindi's Wildlife Adventures series. Honestly, I didn't even know she HAD a book series. And now I have found the next set of books I am going to be buying for my 7 year old - seriously! We read this book (book 7) together - I read it out loud, intending to stop after a few chapters but we both couldn't put it down so we read the whole thing at once. Croc Capers is a fun book with Bindi and her brother Robert as the protagonists. They have a bit of a mystery to solve while on a croc counting mission with their mum. It's a completely believable and exciting (for a 7 year old) story about the siblings with plenty of learning as well (about the animals found in the reserve). I say "GOOD ON YOU" Bindi for carrying on your father's work with people of all ages. I look forward to many more books from you. :-)

About the Series: A unique blend of action, travel, and global conservation, the Bindi Wildlife Adventures series will charm and engage new readers as well as encourage budding young naturalists.
