AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Loku and the Shark Attack is an adventure story with a beautiful difference - it has a soul. The story is about a young village boy, Loku, who undertakes some serious risks to prove to his twin bother that he 'has guts.' To do this Loku must abandon his tribes rules and his conscience. The problems he faces as a result are; an out of control bush fire, being kidnapped while unconscious, a race against an outgoing tide and an inherent shark attack, and perhaps most dangerous of all - betraying his sacred totem animal.' (UQP blurb)
