Join four mismatched teens as they hunt for lost pirate treasure in historic Savannah, Georgia. Follow the group as they race against corrupt artifact thieves to uncover Shamus’s booty.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! October 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Hunt for Shamus's Booty captured my attention the moment I read the very first page. The book starts off with a couple of kids in an underground tunnel searching for the lost treasure of the notorious, peg-legged, foul-mouthed pirate, Shamus Red. But their adventure is only just beginning for in the midst of their mind-bending treasure hunt, danger looms eminently and incredulous obstacles insist on presenting themselves. Will they EVER find the treasure they seek?? The only upsetting part of this book is the fact that it ended! Tarrin Lupo and Ruby Hilliard have outdone themselves - I truly believe it. The illustrations are sensational, the plot is ingenious, and the characters are each so beautifully unique that it makes it impossible not to be able to identify with at least one of them. I would gladly go back and reread this gem of a novel any day and hope all who read it feel the same way. Get ready for a charming, booty-seeking good time with this read!! It's well worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy This Book It's a Great Read!! November 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book - I immediately purchased it after reading Pirates of Savannah (also by Tarrin Lupo). It was a great follow-up to the characters in the first novel. Each character in this particular book is given their own unique personality and they really grow on you; I think everyone out there can identify with one of these 4 main characters in some way, shape, or form. This book is packed with adventure and excitement for adult fiction readers, history lovers, and young adult readers as well. Once again Tarrin Lupo has mastered the art of taking historical facts and weaving it them into a modern day novel full of excitement and adventure. I have learned so much from reading his "Pirate" series of books - they are full of great facts that are extremely interesting; his knowledge of the time frame and the location that he writes about is immense & fascinating - I really hope Tarrin keeps the books coming! I am just LOVING them!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really enjoyable fun read for all! November 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this to be a real treat. It pulls you in right from the beginning. Unlike some other stories that take forever to build up, this one gets right into the action immediately. The characters are well developed and instantly likable.

It's also a clean read. There's no foul language or sexuality. So it's a great read for the whole family. The story is engaging and keeps you wanting to read more. I highly recommend this book. I would also love a sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great adventure for all ages December 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This team of authors, editor and illustrator have done a fantastic job of attracting and then holding on to the reader, no matter what the age. At first glance this might appear to be a cute book only for young teens, but once I got into it I found a liking for the characters and soon began looking forward to seeing what the next round of mischief would be that they'd get themselves into; and I'm in my 60s. There is nothing like following a bunch of kids as they, in their innocence, head off to find adventure and right all the wrongs they see. If only more young people would read Pirates of Savannah and the like, and head off on their own innocent adventures. Maybe the world would be a less dark place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great treasure hunt! November 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is great for kids of all ages... a classic adventure story that doesn't disappoint. If you're a child of the 80s and love the Goonies or a kid who's tired of the same drivel on the Disney channel, this is your story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and educational October 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tarrin Lupo and Ruby N Hilliard's "Pirates of Savannnah, the Hunt for Shamus's Booty" is a tale that will captivate young readers' minds and teach them some concepts they'll never learn in a government school. I love the way the authors weave fact and fiction together to create a vivid tapestry of lovable characters while disseminating useful information, planting the seeds of liberty in the minds of new generations. The illustrations are extraordinary, and worthy of purchasing as framed prints. I would recommend this story to anyone, and once the print version is available, I plan to obtain a few copies for Christmas gifts to give this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars AAAAAARRRRRRRSOME BOOK May 27, 2012
A Kid's Review
This AAARRRRSOME book was as said ARSOME.
I love the book I say it's great for any age like you were going for, by the way mark it off.
I say it couldn't get better. After reading the first few pages I got hooked on it.
All I can say is good job.
I could say I found my half of the loot the other half goes to you for doing so good. Joe-Joe.
