Review of a book from Candlewick Press

Aarr! This book is any pirate's fun adventure. The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt is a chapter book by Megan McDonald. Starring Judy Moody and her brother Stink, this pirate's tale takes them to "Artichoke Island" where the clues and all treasure hunt begins. Every clue is a rhyme that they figure out to get to the next clue. Here's a sample of Clue 1:
Tall as a tree.
dressed in white.
my bridal veil
in shiny bright
Up all night.
never sleeping:
if I rest.
many are weeping.
Upon these shores
since days of old.
my silent message
points to gold.
Join Judy and Stinky as they solve this clue and many more! I give this book 4 out of 5 books! I really enjoyed the funny antics and the lively characters.
