Format: Paperback
This is a great book! It is very suspenseful, which makes it a perfect read for kids who like suspense. It will be too suspenseful for kids ages 6 & 7 and probably 8, too. The suggested age level is ages 10-14. It has a great message-how greed can overtake you! The Coopers- Jay, Lila, and Dr. Cooper go on another archeological adventure, searching for ancient artifacts. Filled with suspense and harrowing escapes to the very end, this book will keep you very captivated from cover to cover!

The Tombs of Anak is, in my opinion, one of the best books in the entire Cooper Kids series. What makes it even more enjoyable for is that my last name is Cooper, too, and I can pretend I'm actually one of the characters in the book. Anyway, the Cooper Kids series is absolutely fantastic. Each book is filled with adventures you couldn't dream of, action, suspense, and, most of all, a sense of God presence and power in and over life and the universe itself. Each story brings out spiritual messages and is great for any audience. Personally, I agree fiction and even children and teen fiction from a Christian perspective is edifying for anyone seeking God's truth or for any child of God, young or old.

In this particular adventure, a Biblical archaeologist family without a mother visits the Holy Land, Israel. In the blink of an eye, one of their hired hands vanishes. Eerie noises, ancient legends, uncanny episodes, and daring escapes in the wild deserts of Israel combine to create a heart-pounding tale you won't be able to put down. The Coopers, through numerous spooky incidents (all from a Christian perspective), soon realize they face a heinous, utterly evil--and seemingly unconquerable--force which, if nothing happens, will soon destroy them and the hundreds of victims it holds in its crushing grip. This is an adventure you won't regret.

Frank Peretti is an innovative writer who thinks up the most incredible stories. He truly is a God-gifted storyteller, and this book shows him in his golden age.

If you love adventure, period, and are willing to be refreshed by lessons of life from a Christian viewpoint--READ THIS!!!

Format: Paperback
It's Frank Peretti's brilliant novel writing skills...condensed! It's a super-cool family of archeologists--minus a mother--who investigate phenomena in the spirit of Indiana Jones, only with a Christian perspective.
The Coopers are on a nice, run-of-the-mill, routine dig in Israel, when they uncover a huge pit. Then one of their crew falls - or is pulled - down, and never seen again. After being captured by the creepy Yahrrim, the local tribesmen who live in fear of their god, meeting their prophetess, Marah, and encountering a rough and mysterious desert rogue they are finally forced to enter. . .The Tombs of Anak.
Riddles, action, suspense, and coolness are loaded to the gills in this book, just great for young people who want to read some cool stuff without the junk and gore of Illinois Jones, or whatever. And yes, there is Christian material in these books, as another reviewer so angrily stated. Refreshing if you ask me.
Parental warnings: Lots of creepy stuff in this book...the Yahrrim are scary - when we first meet them, they're in the middle of an underground ritual - and lots of other scary things happen in the book. I read them when I was younger, and I thought they were cool. And I never needed the Arkansas Jones movies!

Format: Paperback
After I read this book, I wanted to learn more about the strange race of the Anakim, a race of giants with 6 fingers on each hand! It forced me to look up information on the internet, and even made me turn to the Bible, of which my searches have not left me unaided.I am not 9- 12 years old, yet this book still makes me ponder it's content immensly. Some parts I even read again in amazement! I recommend this book and the rest of the Cooper kids series to anyone, ages 9 to adult!

"The Tombs of Anak" is a spell-binding story. Peretti sure didn't miss the mark when he wrote this book. Jay, Lila and Dr. Cooper all impressed me with their faith. But I wonder where Peretti got the information on the Anakim race. I looked in my Bible and didn't find a thing about them.

Format: Paperback
The Third Book in Frank Peretti's "Cooper Kids" series. We were given the first 4 books by a friend and were extremely thankful. This time the Coopers are on an archeological dig in the Middle East at the behest of a couple of treasure hunters and run into a mis-guided pagan priestess and her Goliath-sized son. While we enjoyed the story, I felt that the writing was not up to par with the other three books that we have finished and the action surrounding central "Goliath" villain was somewhat scary and not really apprpriate for younger children.

As always Peretti treats the devout Christian lives of the Coopers as just another normal part of the story and, contrary to some Christian books, movies, or audio tapes that I've had, this aspect of their lives does not seem false or forced into the storyline in order to turn out a "Christian" product - when the Coopers stop to pray before making a tough decision it is an appropriate action that only helps to further the action. Reading some of the reviews for the other books in the series, I think it's pretty funny when some obviously atheist parent tags the book as a "stealth Christian product" when anyone who knows Peretti's works or spends more than 5 min reading the book realizes it isn't a stealth Christian book - it's an OVERT Christian book and proud of it.

Just as all the Cooper Kids books, the real message throughout the story is not the fantastic locales/enemies or gripping action and story telling, but the Christian values (faith, love, and perserverence immediately leap to mind) of the central characters. Always wonderful stories to be either read alone by your "tween" child (my 8 yr old could easly read the book alone - although I don't know if I'd let him), out loud at night as a bedtime story, or as part of a Bible curriculum for older homeschoolers.
