Book Review: Great For Tweens – Treasure Hunters: Peril at the Top of the World

This is a partnered post with BSM Media, all opinions are our own. 

We are all about keeping around books for kids around out home. My husband has his own little library of old college books. Our kids have a bookcase full of books Kaila first read as a toddler and even books we read to her as a baby. They are great hand me downs that we all know as a family.


Our new to middle school daughter enjoys reading and always has. She likes all kinds of books for kids from genres to works of fiction, she will sit and read a book during her free time. We have always been into reading and some of my best memories with her throughout the years has been watching her develop as a reader. I always enjoyed reading so I always hoped she would enjoy it too, just the ability to take an adventure within a book.

Kaila’s most recent read Treasure Hunters: Peril at the Top of the World by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein took her on such a fun adventure to Moscow, Russia she said.  Whenever she reads a new book she likes to tell me all about the story as she goes. She told me about a family call the Kidds who travel as a family finding lost treasure, priceless paintings by Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt. But on an adventure they get setup and accused of stealing the work and have to prove the truth. I was so excited to hear all about their treasure hunting and how you can figure out the clues throughout the book. I was even more excited she had read such a huge book.

It also has fun art and graphics to keep the imagination going.

Treasure Hunters: Peril at the Top of the World is a great read for readers for middle school aged children to tweens. It is a solid book with almost 400 pages so there is plenty of vocabulary to add. Last year for 5th grade she got a “1 million words read certificate” and would have liked to push for more but she has 2 sisters and her own things she wants to do. So I commend her greatly for her effort and drive.

It’s a great book for kids in middle school and as Kaila just hit middle school this will start her reading skills back into motion. The action never stops with more chases, sneak attacks, spy missions, and double-crossing it’s a fun adventure for middle schoolers.
