Read the great reviews of Pacific Giants:
'An online dictionary describes 'page-turner' as 'a book that is very interesting or exciting'. Such a definition falls way short of the mark to thus decribe Flitcroft's book. Pacific Giants grips the reader from the very first pages with the appearance - and disappearance - of the elderly man in a yellow raincoat and sweeps along faster than the sea-serpent young Vanessa is chasing......A great story and one to be highly recommended.'
Books Ireland (March 2013)
‘The Pacific Giants will take you down into the depths of the Pacific Ocean into the magical world of the humpback whales. This is a beautiful story, a rollicking, pacey adventure that will get your spine tingling. A fantastic addition to the Cryptid Files trilogy.’
Paula Leydon, Author of award winning book The Butterfly Heart
Pacific Giants is the third in The Cryptid Files series of books by Jean Flitcroft which deal with cryptozoology, which is the study of strange creatures that some people have reported seeing, but for which there is no scientific proof. ...With scientific facts on this subject at the beginning of each chapter, this book draws the reader into the possibility of the extraordinary, and together with the excellent atmospheric narrative makes this book a page-turning, high tension journey into the world of cryptozoology.
