Book Review of
Summer of the Woods
Magic Tree House meets Hardy Boys
“A perfect summer reading adventure!”
When ten-year-old Derek and eight-year-old Sam move with their family to Virginia, they have no idea what adventures the summer will bring. As the brothers explore their creaky old house and the deep surrounding woods, they uncover a sixty-year-old mystery of a valuable coin collection stolen from the local museum. Join the boys as they spend their summer running from danger and searching the woods, secret caves, rushing waters, and hidden passageways for treasure and the rare 1877 Indian Head cent coin!
Two brothers move to a new house that backs up to the woods. The woods give them endless adventure for there summer vacation. They soon learn about a stolen treasure which they set out to find. I do not think this story is like either the Hardy Boys or the Magic Tree House, but it does have a the siblings who love adventure. Boys eight and up are more probably going to enjoy reading about Derek and Sam’s adventures.
