Reviews - What do customers think about Treasure in the Yukon (Peabody Adventure Series #3)?
I enjoyed it Apr 2, 2003
This book doesn't look/sound like much at first. My sister actually had it for a year or so before I read it. This is one of the Peabody series, but it operates on its own as well, so you don't have to read the others first or anything.
The plot is, Jack Derwood has an offer to go with his uncle on a fact-finding trip in the Yukon. Allegedly, a long-dead crook buried treasure there, and they want to find it. Jack invites his bully-turned-friend Scruggs to come along, and, along with other party members, they begin their venture to find The Treasure of the Yukon.
The book is surprisingly believable, well-written, and fun to read. While giving the feel of being back in the days of live-on-your-own-means, fighting outlaws and recovering stolen treasure, it is not at all unbelievable or fanciful. In fact, I thought it was rather cool, especially the end. But you'll have to read it for yourself.
Wonderful book! Jan 25, 2001
This is the third in the peabody series and is almost as good as the first. I was impressed with the fact that I didn't already know what was going to happen next but was completely surprised with the ending-impressive to me because it's usually obvious what the ending is going to be in kids adventure books. Even though it's supposed to be for 9-12 years I will be reading it on my own until I have kids and then I'll read it out loud to them. I can't imagine ever getting to old for it!
