(Candlewick)

If you’ve got a young reader on your hands who plans to be a pirate for Halloween, pick up a copy of this fun mystery for a special treat.

This is another laugh aloud funny adventure for siblings Judy Moody and Stink.  This time they are hunting for the clues that will allow them to win the grand prize in the Pirate Island Treasure Hunt.  The competition is tough and Judy and Stink soon notice that they keep running into another sibling pair — Tall Boy and Smart Girl.

Who will solve the mystery first?  Maybe a special youngster in your life.  All of the clues are there and both boys and girls will enjoy pitting their detecting skills against the kids in the book and maybe even an adult reader.  McDonald sets up a good mystery, sharing all of the necessary clues with the reader.  But there are also red herrings and Judy and Stink make mistakes that may mislead the unwary.

Do you dare take the challenge?
