Sam and his two friends are convinced they will be the next to find a big treasure. Especially when Sam is given a top of the line metal detector for his birthday. When they meet a crusty old sea captain named Jack, they're told that Jack knows all there is to know about treasures. So the boys try to get to know Captain Jack.
Captain Jack has purchased an old boat that is hardly seaworthy. And he hires on Sam and his friends to help him fix up the boat. The three boys dream of going out treasure hunting on Captain Jack's boat...but what is Captain Jack's secret he seems to be hiding/ And does he really know anything about treasures?
CAPTAIN JACK'S TREASURE is book two in the Sam Cooper Adventure series by Max Elliot Anderson. Mr. Anderson is an adventure writer for boys--especially boys that are reluctant readers. I can vouch that his books make reluctant readers sit up and take notice--and that they will read these books from cover to cover. I had two reluctant readers when they were young, and now both of these boys are in college and they both still enjoy Mr. Anderson's books. My oldest son tells me, "They're exciting, Mom." And my youngest son says, "These are books that once you start them you can't put them down, you have to keep reading."
I read this book for purpose of review, and it is a very exciting story. The boys are looking for fun and adventure, and they find it. Not only that, but Captain Jack is full of tales of pirates and treasures and phantoms haunting ships and lighthouses.Read more ›
What little boy doesn't want to be a pirate or a sea captain at some point in their young life? I really liked how the three friends worked together with Captain Jack, their comradarie, and the amount of respect they showed to him and each other. Not only is this a captivating tale but it has spiritual concepts in at as well!
Nicely laid out in short chapters so they aren't overwhelmed, and not too many pages, it keeps a good pace going. They're sure to be enticed to read it just from the cool cover! I recommend this to any parent who has a child struggling with interest in books. Try this one. They just might become hooked on reading for life!
Special thanks to Chila Woychik of Port Yonder Press for sending me a review copy. I was under no obligation to write a positive review. This is my honest opinion.
There isn't a lot of good, modern (lots of classics though) books for boys to enjoy that aren't riddled with witches, magic and other sinful behavior, so to read this was a breath of fresh air. There was no violence - although an old sailor did tell a pirate ghost story - but even that was VERY brief and I know my oldest would write it off as fanciful and not to be believed. I'm looking forward to maybe reading this with my son but may need to wait a few more months.
