PR by the Book and the author shared a copy of this with me for review (thank you). It has been published and you can buy a copy from Outskirts Press or Amazon now.
It all begins with a train trip to where they think they might find the missing sunstone. They keep going through tunnels where the train cars are in the dark temporarily. All of sudden, they get captured and are made unconscious by a gas. They wake up tied up in the luggage car. They are resourceful, though, and get loose. As they try hiding on the train, they take the ropes with them. They'll be glad they did!
They meet an older woman who is going to the exhibit they want to see so they get more information from her to help with their quest. She poopoos the idea of berserkers saying that it was just a bigger man who wore furs and probably was drunk who ran about yelling and taking on all comers. They'll see one before this story is over.
This series is exciting, full of action, and full of danger for the young ones. It's a good thing they are smart and have their act together. If they didn't, they'd fail on their quests!
I love the Kare Kids Adventures series. The best part is how each is a standalone book yet as you start to read this book it talks about how they are all connected. This time the kids are hot on the trail of a museum thief. Things get tense but the kids save the day with a little help.
This is a great chapter book for kids and parents alike. I really like how you learn new things. I’m sorry to say that I have never heard of sunstones before. It was something new even for me. If you are looking for a great series for both girls and boys, look no further. The Kare Kids Adventures are wonderful and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
I received The Travel Twins and the Lost Secret of the Vikings from PR by the Book for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
I found the story a quick read and filled with conversations and excitement that would grip the adventure-seeking reader. Charles A. Salter's series of The Travel Twins (The Kare Kids Adventures) is a good series.
My Concerns:This story is about a 12 year old set of twins on an adventure to foil a theft of a mysterious object. Before undertaking it, they have a conversation with their uncle...... "Children, I don't think your parents would approve your your darting off on your own like this." To which they replied.... "Just give us 24 hours before you tell them. O.K.?" Somehow, parents of children reading this story will need to strongly tell them that this is fiction and that 12 year olds simply do not go off on their own like this or engage in some of the antics this set of twins experiences.
DISCLOSURE: I received a complimentary copy from PRBytheBook publicity group on behalf of the author to facilitate my review. Opinions are my own, alone. I was not compensated.
The story starts with twins Josh and Hannah already traveling on a train, following clues left by thieves. A precious sunstone has been stolen from their uncle’s museum. The police will surely be too slow to find it, so the youngsters hope to get it back. On the way they’ll learn a few Nordic phrases, question experts, attend exciting ceremonies, and fall into terrible danger. But it all works out in a nicely plotted chapter book, with sections just the right length for easy reading, well-presented text, simple dialog, and enough complicated words to challenge without scaring readers away.
Kare Kids adventures are a fun, and this one’s another good entry to the series. Enjoy.
