Sunken forest, by Des Hunt (1941-)
If you want to read a great book about a boy and a giant eel called Elsa, then look no further. The Sunken Forest is about Matt who has to attend a camp that is based in the military because he was accused of stealing. That’s when the adventure with the Elsa starts. I really enjoyed this book, it has a strong story line and is interesting to read. Children 9+ would like this book.
