#Review: The Forgotten Secret by Scott Clements

The Forgotten Secret by Scott ClementsSimply wow! The follow up to Gasparilla’s Treasure by middle-grade author Scott Clements absolutely did not disappoint.

A great mix of history and adventure, this one is certainly a page turner (or slider if you have an e-reader). I could not put it down.

The story resumes with our favourite trio of treasure hunters basking in the victory of finding Gasparilla’s Treasure and living life a little bit better than before.

Trip, Sarah and Josh are quickly approached by a new character to the mix, Gonzalez, who has an air of mystery to him but presents the intrepid treasure hunters with an offer they simply cannot refuse. I’ll leave it there, I do not want to spoil it for you, but it’s fantastic with twists and turns and a lot of laughs too.

Full of fun ‘Easter eggs’ of references that us adventure movie loving fans will pick up on and page-turning action for the younger readers, this series is fantastic for making kids (and adults) want to read more.

Clements is a genius when it comes to writing visually. You really can ‘see’ the book as you read it and I just love that.

If you are looking for some great reading material for the kids this summer (or sooner!), that will hold their interest and get them excited about reading, check these out. They will not disappoint.

All of Clements’ books are available at his website here: www.HappyBrownDog.com
