TREASURE ON SUPERSTITION MOUNTAIN by Elise Broach , Antonio Javier Cararo

treasure on superstition mountain caparo antonio javier broach elise

Treasure on Superstition Mountain is the second book in Elise Broach's Superstition Mountain series. Not all questions are answered, leaving room for another sequel. The question remainsā€”is someone after them, or is the mountain seeking revenge? There is also enough adventure to keep it moving along nicely. The plot also seemed a bit con I thought the narrative voice was much too sophisticated for the 10-year-old main character, Henry, even though he loves learning new words. He lives in Montreal, Canada.

Caparo's skillful grayscale illustrations add a spooky element: three skulls mark each new chapter, and images like a black cat sitting on a crooked gravestone inspire chills.

There is also enough adventure to keep it moving along nicely. A mix of old-fashioned Hardy Boys mystery with just a hint of Indiana Jones adventure. Sorry, that's the writer in me being picky, but the 8-year-old who might pick this up because he wants a good adventure story won't know what those words mean and probably won't take the time to look them up. So, will someone get spiked by a cactus in the next book? Orders to international addresses are dispatched from the United Kingdom. Like the first book, it is rich with the history and legends of the Superstition Mountain area. I grew up right by the Superstition Mountains so it caught my attention right away.
