Jenkins, Author "Max's Adventures are like good, family movies . . . " Bill Myers - Author Max Elliot Anderson grew up as a struggling, reluctant reader. After surveying the market, he sensed the need for action-adventures and mysteries for readers 8 and up, especially boys. Mr. Anderson was a producer of the nationally televised PBS special, Gospel at the Symphony that was nominated for an Emmy, and won a Grammy for the double album soundtrack.

Using his extensive experience in the production of motion pictures, videos, and television commercials, Mr. Anderson brings the same visual excitement and heart-pounding action to his stories. Each book has completely different characters, setting, and plot. Several books are published, with an additional twenty-eight manuscripts completed. Young readers have reported that reading one of Mr. Anderson's books is like being in an exciting or scary movie.

Sam, Tony and Tyler are best friends. They are constantly looking for adventure. Sam receives a metal detector from his dad for his birthday. He and his friends have heard that people have found a lot of treasure in the area where they live. They do some research and figure that they can be the ones to find the next great treasure. If the mention of finding treasure doesn't peak your interest then let's throw in an old sea captain. We all know that boys, and girls, like stories about treasures and old sea captains. This particular sea captain appears to be hiding something. He hires the boys to help him rebuild his ship. Along the way the captain teaches them about true treasures. This is a book that both boys and girls, and parents will enjoy. I love the gentle message of laying up treasures in Heaven. All of Max's books have a Christian theme to them. The reason I really like them is that I can put them on my shelves at school. I put them there not only for the Christian students, but also for ALL students. They are clean cut with great messages. They have adventures and mysteries to carry the reader from the first sentence to the end of the book. I would say it is a must read.

One can tell that Max Elliot Anderson knows the hearts and minds of young boys. The characters, Sam, Tony and Tyler, were typical all-American, adventure-seeking, conclusion-leaping boys full of curiosity and impatience, yet each has his own distinct personality. Bible verses and Bible precepts were embedded in the story without being tract-like or preachy helping the reader learn valuable life lessons right along with Sam, Tony, and Tyler. I highly recommend this book to all adventure-loving (especially pirate-adventure loving) 8 to 11 year old boys or girls.

Sam Butler lives right beside the ocean on the Treasure Coast of Florida. And all he has heard about since he moved there has been about the fabulous treasures that have been found--and those that are still waiting to be discovered.

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.

It's so nice to see someone writing exciting fiction for young boys between the ages of 9 and 12. As the mom of two former reluctant readers, I wish this book, and it's counterparts, had been around when my boys were that age. Filled with wonderful characters, young and old alike, Captain Jack's Treasure is sure to keep even the most hesitant reader glued to the pages of this book.

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.

If I was a boy then this would be a wonderfully, enjoyable book - but because I'm not - I still enjoyed it. This is a short book (I received the e-book version) which will hold the attention of a fast moving boy as well as given them a look into the character's Christian world view. The main characters are three boys who are best friends and enjoy treasure hunting on the beach - but they all learn some valuable lessons along the way - especially some tips from the Bible.

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.
