It is a land of mystery.
It is a land that time forgot (or chose specifically not to remember).
Cut off from the civilized world for untold years, this land is called: DELAWARE
It is into the mist-shrouded heart of this forbidden, mountainous realm that our plucky and intrepid heroes, Jasper Dash, Boy Technonaut, and his friends Lily Gefelty and Katie Mulligan, must journey to unravel a terrible mystery.
Come along on a tale of grand adventure that includes in its pages: Lost cities! Tentacles! Monks! Dinosaurs! Gangsters! Cheap suits! Eye doctors! And, of course, the fabled curse of the jaguar!

My boys have borrowed this audio from the library three times and it is just as funny every time. If you have kids who love adventure and silliness, this is the book for you. Jasper Dash and his friends, Lily and Katie, head off to help the monks that live on the mysterious mountain tops in the state of... Delaware. It is a land of spicy air, monks that fly and is ruled by an awful and adorable autarch.
We have listened to the earlier books and didn't like them nearly as much, although the sequel to this one is pretty good as well. Highly recommended as long as you bring your funny bone along.
A wonderful melange of parodies of Indiana Jones, Sweet Valley High, Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys. Very funnily, wittily written. The less I say the better. Go out and get this audiobook for the young smartypants in your household and for yourself as well. Enjoyable for all age 8 and up, I feel.
It's as hysterical as Zombie Mommy, also by M.T. Anderson. Now, if only we could get THAT amazing book on audible.com.... (hint, hint)
Look pal, one media at a time. Just read the book and be happy!
Stare-Eyes IS a sport!
