TUESDAY: The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt
The Moodys are on vacation in North Carolina where they visit Ocracoke Island and get to take part in a pirate treasure hunt. They have two days to follow the clues and collect 16 "pieces of eight" to win the prize of a doubloon and a trip on a pirate ship. But if they are going to win, Stink and Judy are going to have to beat a lot of other treasure hunters to the final piece of eight. And Tall Boy and Smart Girl are hot on the trail!
This was a cute story that shows two heads are better than one. The kids make some good choices when it comes to the competition and good sportsmanship. Great illustrations from my favorite illustrator, Peter H. Reynolds.
