Very English, Very Fun

This book follows some siblings on their attempt to find an ancient treasure with a map they found hidden in their vacation house in Cornwall, England. With the help of their mysterious Great-Uncle Merry, they set out to solve the map's riddles and evade those who want the treasure for evil purposes.

Very well-written and full of interesting puzzles, this book will keep you entertained and thinking along with the kids. Beautiful descriptions of the setting and the details of the time period also make for great reading about mid-century Great Britain.

The start of The Dark Is Rising sequence.

A King Arthur Twist

An interesting blend of treasure-hunting and Arthurian legend.

The beginning was a little slow, but once the plot actually got moving, it was really fun. The characters were a little dull, but not unlikable. I am excited to see where this goes in the next book.
