4.0 out of 5 stars Way to Start 'Em Young, Clive!, February 28, 2006
This review is from: The Adventures of Vin Fiz (Hardcover)
Casey and Lacey Nicefolk are 10-year-old twins living on an herb farm near Castroville, California. One summer, their father hires a hand, Sucoh Sucop, who builds things in secret in the barn. The day after harvest, before moving on, Mr. Sucop gives the twins a device he's built that can make their toys real.

After first turning a toy tractor into a real one for their father, the twins turn a Wright Brothers model airplane into a life-size machine and hop in for an adventure across the United States. As they make their way to the Atlantic with their Basset hound Floopy, they find a number of adventures along the way, each involving a rescue and feats of derring-do by the twins, their dog, and Vin Fiz, the airplane.

Dirk Pitt fans hoping for a toned-down Pitt-style adventure shouldn't bother. This is a story for kids and the plot is far from intricate. What we get instead is a cute, fun adventure grade schoolers will enjoy, full of silly names to tickle their funny bones, as well as a number of fun facts to learn along the way. Both Casey and Lacey are likeable kids with good values, too. Cussler fans with kids should definitely pick this one up and get them started young.
