Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Homeschooling takes on a whole new meaning when home is a sailing ship and you have the world’s coolest parents. Not that it matters after your mom goes missing in Cyprus, and, a few months later, your dad (a renowned treasure hunter and oceanographer) disappears from your ship’s deck during a fierce storm in the Caribbean. Along with their older brother and sister, twins Bick and Beck vow to carry on the family treasure-hunting business despite the dangers posed by a vicious rival and his minions, including modern-day pirates in sometimes ludicrous disguises. When not dealing with threats or searching for treasure, the kids wonder which seemingly helpful adults they can trust. Bick narrates the story, while Beck illustrates it. From kidnapping to underwater speargun fights, action is the name of the game here, bolstered by bits of comedy. Although the premise and plot are wholly unconvincing, the fast-paced, first-person narrative is entertaining. With 10 treasures (not to mention two parents) waiting to be discovered, it looks like a new series is on the horizon. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: It’s a new series co-authored by the #1 New York Times best-selling Patterson. Get ready for demand-ho! Grades 4-6. --Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover
The book is okay. My 6 year old enjoyed it, but I didn't. James Patterson doesn't actually write his books, he writes part of it or simply creates an idea and passes it off. Normally I don't care, but this book had a clear line where it sounded like another author stepped in. The whole tone of the book changed as well as the level of violence and gun references. Very odd to read, it was like a grade school project where the teacher hands you a partially written story and asks you to finish it. I wouldn't recommend it for little kids (less than 10) since there is violence and implied death, especially of the parents. The geography portion is educational, but in the copy I had the map of the US was drawn wrong. Not sure if that made it to the final copies.

Format: Hardcover
"Treasure Hunters" by James Patterson is an illustrated book that is most suitable for pre-teens although some teenagers could alsolove it due to its adventurous plot and interesting characters.

The book's main characters are four Kidds children, twins Bick and Beck, Tommy and Storm that are quite different by their appearance, but also by their character.
They all grown travelling the world with their parents treasure hunters who are seeking for the submerged valuables with their ship named Lost.

After their parents will disappear due to the sea storm, they will start their own adventure that will bring them to Cayman Islands and further seeking for the great treasure but also trying to find the truth what happened to their parents and are they still alive.
On their way there will be numerous obstacles, like pirates they will encounter and rivals who are looking for the same treasure, therefore their success won't be easy to achieve...

The author made a bit unusual combination of story book and regular novel both using text and lot of illustrations resulting in a work that obviously intend to help kids in their transition from reading picture books to reading books.

Although it's always difficult to judge some work that is intended for completely different audience, this book will be probably popular as other Patterson's books, although it's bit too long and its plot isn't so realistic like it's expected from literature intended for audience older than pre-teens.

Purchased this for my 8 year old son and any free moment he had he was reading it. He took it to school each day so he could read during free reading time. As soon as he finished Treasure Hunters he was asking when the next one was going to be out. Love seeing him excited about a book! I didn't read the book so I can't comment on that side of things but I do know my son gave it 2 thumbs up.

Great story, great drawings. My 7 year old begs me not to stop reading it to him at night. It's one of those "please, just one more chapter!" books! Highly recommend it!

James Patterson does it again! My 7 year old has loved JP's other reads, especially the Middle School series, and this book was no exception. The book arrived as promised via Amazon Prime on a Friday afternoon and my son finished all 451 pages by 7pm Saturday night. He's already asking when the next book in the series is set to be released!

Both of my boys like this book, talked about it and recommened it to others. One chose it for a report at school. I did not read it, but when I ask the boys about it, they both put it in their "tops" list for books. Not too scary, fun to read.

The way it started out, I didn't like it. As I got into the story, it turned out to be very good. A little different for a James Patterson book.
