Looking For a Lost Brother. Mar 30, 2003
The Sugar Creek Gang series revolves around a group of young, Christian boys from the northern Midwest who solve crimes and mysteries and end up having all sorts of exciting adventures. The stories are much like the Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew. However, they are told from the perspective of one of the gang's members, Bill Collins. This narrative technique gives the stories a more authentic feel, at the expense of skipped plot details and simplistic descriptions.
In this edition of the series, the gang is sent to Palm Tree Island by a benevolent benefactor in Sugar Creek, Old Man Paddler. Old Man Paddler wants the boys to visit some missionaries on Palm Tree Island and experience a different culture. However, he also wants the boys to secretly look for his long lost twin brother who was last seen on the island over twenty years ago. The gang gets lost in the city, are attacked by a goat, and run into a crazy old man who calls himself John Machette.
Readers who enjoy series like the Hardy Boys will probably enjoy this book, as will most young boys. Even though the series was written over thirty years ago, it remains fresh and most young boys will be able to relate to the story's characters, who with their Christian values, provide decent role models.
Palm Tree Manhunt Feb 26, 2001
The Sugar Creek Gang and the Palm Tree Manhunt is a book about a gang of kids who tries to solve mysteries. In this one, they try to find Old Man Padder's long lost brother. Old Man Padder said his brother went to Palm Tree Island and never came back. They found a man that looked like his brother but claimed he was John Machete and he had been born a grown man in El Torro Castle. The gang still had a suspicion that he was Old Man Padder's brother. They could not prove he was until John Machete woke up and said he had amnesia. The gang then went back and told Old Man Padder that his brother was fine and well.
