From the #1 New York Times best-selling author of Middle School, the Worst Years of My Life and I Funny comes a brilliantly original new adventure series, jam-packed with action, humor, and heart!
The Kidd siblings have grown up diving down to shipwrecks and traveling the world, helping their famous parents recover everything from swords to gold doubloons from the bottom of the ocean. But after their parents disappear on the job, the kids are suddenly thrust into the biggest treasure hunt of their lives. They'll have to work together to defeat dangerous pirates and dodge the hot pursuit of an evil treasure hunting rival, all while following cryptic clues to unravel the mystery of what really happened to their parents - and find out if they're still alive.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

I have been a lifelong fan and reader of James Patterson's novels aimed at adults, but never really thought my kids would like to read a "Patterson" title. That all changed when I downloaded Treasure Hunters for my children to listen to in the car. They are hooked! When we got home, they begged me to stay in the car so they could finish up the chapter we were on. After it was finished, they ran inside to throw the bonus PDF of illustrations in the computer and couldn't stop talking about it. It is a rare occasion when my kids get that excited about anything, especially an audiobook. As a parent, it is great when your kids are quiet in the car, but even better when their attention is being kept by a book. On a personal level, I found myself being drawn in by the story and mystery as well! I like the idea of kids taking some responsibility for themselves for once! I highly recommend TREASURE HUNTERS to all kids and parents alike!
I like the narrator. I like the way he uses voice. Like the story the author is writing in the way the story is structured. I think a story with less chapters would do, so that it will make eager listeners who don't have that much time easier to finish. But I love the book and can't wait to see what any new treasure hunters books come out
