Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Jackson and his scheming friend Goat, heroes of Cracker Jackson , Byars's compassionate and thoughtfully rendered novel about physical abuse, return in this lighthearted adventure. The boys attempt to outwit each other with a series of treasure hunts, and meet with mishaps at every turn. When a list of clues leads Jackson to a chocolate popsicle in Goat's freezer, he mistakenly claims the treat as his treasure, unaware that it belongs to Goat's sister Rachel--"the ogre." Rachel extracts her revenge by intercepting and rehiding Jackson's prize for Goat, sending the pair on a frenzied, "clueless" search that ends where it began. The thin plot doesn't deliver the seven adventures promised by the title, and readers may find the resolution somewhat uninspired. Illustrations not seen by PW. Ages 7-11.

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5-- An answer to the ever-growing need for short, funny, chapter books, this should be a popular selection for transitional readers. Jackson and his best friend, Goat, are trying to outwit each other by providing clues for a treasure hunt game. The "treasures" are just what would appeal to eight- or nine-year-olds: a Superman comic, a Matchbox car with one wheel missing, a "fake" ice cube for fooling your friends, and of course, some goodies like M & Ms and chocolate popsicles. The boys' ingenuity in making up clues should suggest similar creative play to readers. Although the focus of the brief chapters is on the friendship between the two boys, children do learn a bit about their family lives. Barrett's spare, cartoonlike line drawings are in keeping with the light, undemanding style of the prose. Fans of Jenny Archer, the kids at Polk St. School, the Pee Wee Scouts, and the Small Potatoes will welcome Jackson and Goat, and are likely to request more stories about them. --Martha Rosen, Edgewood School, Scarsdale, NY

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. My son is entering third grade, but is struggling with reading at the level he should be at. This book is aimed for his age, but is still an easy reader. It helped give him the confidence he needs as it is aimed towards third and fourth graders and he could read it! Thank you Betsy Byars for realizing not all children read at the same level, but still need books appropriate for their age to keep their interest. The Seven Treasure Hunts is about two boys, Jackson and Goat, who use maps and clues to find eachothers treasures. Each boy takes a turn hiding stuff of their own and gives the other either a map or clue to find it. Of course things don't always go according to plans. There is the stolen chocolate popsicle which will make kids want to keep reading to find out what happened with it. And then dealing with Goats sister, Rachael a.k.a the ogre, will leave kids laughing. It is written with much humor for young and old alike. My son read this out loud to me and we both really enjoyed it. Thank you, thank you Betsy Byars.

Held the attention of a 5 year old - this is not a early reader book - but is a chapter book that my 5 year old boy enjoyed.

The book is about two boys named Jackson and Goat, and they have seven treasure hunts. Jackson has a bigger sister and likes to bother her.They also sometimes bury treasure so they can have fun finding it later.The seven chapters are very neat and cool. Chapter four is called The Hunt for the Missing Treasure. Read to find out what treasure they find. I would say that other kids my age will like to read this book it is funny and they will get a blast out of it.

As a reading specialist, I'm always on the lookout for a book that will be interesting to boys who are reluctant readers. This is the one. It is a chapter book, but we read one chapter at a time and review what we read previously before we move on. I have to buy it again as the little boy I'm working with has already asked me if he can keep it when we're finished with it.

This was a gift for a third-grade student. He likes to read so I bought this book that would provide an adventure for him. I'm sure he will enjoy it over the summer.

My daughter loved it, although i had to make her read it. If you want your kid to have something light and quick to read, this is it!

I was disappointed in this book. I would like to have seen the characters developed. I think children want to be able to relate to the characters in the book. This book did not accomplish this. The clues were not very clear. I guess you had to be there to appreciate it.
