If you're looking for a fun, but slightly stuffy, middle grade read- Look No Further! Addison Cooke and the Treasure of the Incas is the one to read. Filled with an unbelievable adventure and a child with the mannerisms of Sherlock Holmes, it's silly yet sure to be a pleasure of a read.
This was one of the books I read with my son, Joshua, for homeschool. Normally we trade off on chapters together, but with potty training Magnus (our Christmas chuhuahua) and reading two scheduled books, I had to use an audiobook instead.
In Addison Cooke and the Treasure of the Incas, by Jonathan W. Stokes and narrated by Ralph Lister), Addison and his sister Molly have to rescue their kidnapped uncle and aunt. A sinister villain, seeking three Incan keys to a hidden treasure, will do anything to become rich- even take lives! Everyone is expendable. It's up to Addison's amazing knowledge, his sister and The 86er's (their friends), to go on an adventure of a true lifetime to save the day!
This book was funny, adventurous and very unrealistic. Sure, there are many children with mannerisms like Addison, but this kid was something else! He was so unreal, it almost ruined the story- but it's also what made it so fun and humorous. Addison was a know-it-all, so the fact that a bunch of kids managed to get from New York to Mauchupichu without an adult is freaking ridiculous! But it still made for a fab read.
My son and I laughed at everything about this tale- and all the 'Sticky Wickets' which is a phrase we now use! It's a fresh read and very different from the majority of my reads, but well worth the journey. Check out AddisonCooke and the Treasure of the Incas while move on the next read!
