Chosen by Suzy
A 1979 children’s book that sees twins Rachel and Theo Matheson travel beneath Auckland’s extinct volcanoes to prevent the destruction of the world.
✎ “One of the best children’s books ever. The joy of such recognisable landmarks when I read this as a child was just as strong when I read this as an adult. Lake Pupuke was never the same to me after this book. Wonderfully paced with just the right amount of terror. A must read for all red-heads, you are powerful beings you know!” – Suzy
✎ “There are many moralistic considerations to glean from this story, one of the reasons why it is a fantastic book choice for readers of all ages. And of course the adventurous, humanity saving story line is another!” – Rachel
