This book (and the others in this series) is a perfect read for 4-5 grade. There's a bit of everything kids like in the books- adventure, mystery, travel to cool places, and some history/geography. My students really enjoyed the whole series and are hoping there will be more.
So if your students are up for a fun-filled adventure book set in Costa Rica, then this is a great read for them.
This is the second book in this unnamed series (or perhaps it is just a sequel? I don't think so, the ending leaves readers wondering where Goosen is and what will happen next!) . The first book is Capture the Flag in which the children learn about the Silver Jaguar Society and solve the mystery of the stolen flag all while in Washington, D.C. In this book, the children travel to Costa Rica and solve the mystery of the fake Jaguar Cup. I've read both books and I like this series because the children get the adults out of the way and then solve the crime themselves, much like Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys used to do. The book is also slightly similar to the 39 Clues series, which is understandable as they have the same publisher. One thing especially nice about this series is it will appeal to boys and girls and it will appeal to those who like adventure stories as well. When students are assigned genres to read, not everyone likes mystery books. This is a series that might tempt those reluctant to dive into a mystery book!
I didn't quite understand the end, when the kids were racing away from the two guys, It seemed like time suddenly slowed...the kids were able to have conversations and argue about things while Goosen would be right on their tail. If you're in a hurry, you don't have time; you RUN!
But overall the book was great. Somehow, of course, everything works out perfectly and the kids get away in the knick of time--not so in real life! But I'm anxious to read the next book!
