The Secret Lake Summary

The Secret Lake by Karen Inglis

A lost dog, a hidden time tunnel and a secret lake take Stella and Tom to their home and the children living there 100 years in the past. A page-turning time travel adventure for children aged 8-11. Now enjoyed by over 250,000 young readers! When Stella and her younger brother, Tom, move to their new London home, they become mystified by the disappearances of Harry, their elderly neighbour's dog. Where does he go? And why does he keep reappearing wet-through? Their quest to solve the riddle over the summer holidays soon leads to a boat buried under a grassy mound - and a tunnel that takes them to a secret lake. Who is the boy rowing towards them? Why is he so terrified? And whose are those children's voices carried on the wind from beyond the woods? Stella and Tom soon discover that they have travelled back in time to their home and its gardens almost 100 years earlier. Here they make both friends and enemies and uncover startling connections between the past and present. The Secret Lake has been described by readers as a modern Tom's Midnight Garden and compared in atmosphere with The Secret Garden and the Enid Blyton and Nancy Drew mystery adventure stories. Its page-turning plot, with its many twists and turns, makes it a firm favourite with both boys and girls. Karen Inglis describes it as: "a time travel mystery adventure with modern twists - the kind of story that I loved to read as a child, but brought right up to date".

The Secret Lake Reviews

"An excellent read for boys and girls. ...because of the strong mix of characters it succeeds in being that most unusual of books - a book that can be appreciated by both boys and girls alike. However what I particularly liked is that, unlike many of the lengthy tomes published for 8 - 12 year-olds these days, the page count is extremely manageable with short, gripping chapters that lead you swiftly on through an absorbing tale of mystery and suspense." -- Louise Jordan, Founder, The Writers' Advice Centre for Children's Books; Director, Wacky Bee
