Book Review: Shipwreckers by Scott Peterson & Joshua Pruett

A cursed temple? Treasure? The Amazon River? A very punny Captain and two kids on a boat? What could go wrong? Everything!

Writers Scott Peterson and Joshua Pruett, whose last book was the novelization of Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book, bring us their latest page turner!  And given their background as writers for such shows as Phineas and Ferb and the upcoming The Last Kids on Earth, Shipwreckers reads like an animated film!

The story follows book lover 12-year-old Mike Gonzalez while he tries his best to protect his 8-year-old sister Dani from the dangers of thrill-seeking while on a family vacation in Brazil. This is where Captain Kevin Adventureson comes in, a larger-than-life character, who is not only overconfident but filled with some of the best (or worst) puns of all-time!

The action is over-the-top and will keep you turning the pages! But fear not, all of the action does not come at the expense of character development. You will love the arcs of the siblings and learn some valuable lessons of life and family along the way.

By the time you get to the end of the book you will want to know where the television series is! Or at least wonder how much longer you will have to wait for the follow up to this action packed book!
