Pete and the Sunken City

Pate ja vajonnut kaupunki

There’s a surprise on the seabed!

The ninth Pete book dives into the underwater world, but in the clear waters there’s something very dark going on.

Pete’s uncle invites Pete and Senja (and Totti the dog) to visit him in sunny Australia.
“Can we swim in the sea?” I check.
“Of course. It’s completely safe. You just have to watch out for sea currents, sea snakes, sting rays, and sea urchins,” Uncle explains with a smile.
“At least there’s no need to be afraid of sharks,” I say.
“I forgot that,” Uncle replies.

The holiday gets even scarier when it transpires that someone out there is destroying an amazing coral reef. There’s no way Pete, Totti and Senja can prepare for the surprise that awaits beneath the surface.

The bestselling author Timo Parvela gives old myths a fresh spin in Pete books as he expertly guides Pete and his friends through the most thrilling, yet hilarious, adventures.
Pete and the Sunken City became in instant bestseller with over 10.000 copies sold on publication!
