Okay, so this was absolute garbage! James Patterson really needs to quit with the youth books, there hasn't been a good one yet. There is a pretty good story in this one, but definitely needs to be fleshed out. The children have not emotions, and the action sequences are thrown together. All said, just a lazy effort on what could have been a pretty good tale. ( )

This is a fun children's book about four children whose parents are treasure hunters. Their parents go missing and the children, using clues that their parents have left them, must find missing treasures that will help them rescue their parents. It's funny, cute, and action-packed! I'd recommend it for 3rd-5th grades. It has about 450 pages, but lots of cute pictures and a very fast read! It would be a lot of fun to read with your child or grandchild! ( )

This book is an action packed, a million miles a minute thrill ride of wish fulfillment. Most of it is a lot of fun and they manage to squeeze a lot of educational facts in. It can be repetitive at times and the twin tirades are a bit much when you're listening to it on audiobook; I suspect that they're less irritating on paper. The kids aren't super well developed but with such a crazy plot it's not a huge deal provided that they do some character development in future books.
I'm not going to lie that I found the lack of grief on the part of the kids who believed that their parents are dead really disturbing. It just seems to me that there should be a little bit more gravitas regarding all that or a time jump that allows for the processing of grief or something just to accommodate the feelings that they should be experiencing.
