The Adventure Twins in an Incredible Mayan Mystery Mystery Fiction by Roxanne Juravlea

Synopsis as per www.goodreads.com

When Lisa and her twin brother Bradley tag along on their Grandmother’s vacation to Cancun, Mexico they end being left behind at the resort to watch movies and participate in a boring kids day camp. 

After day three of reading books and watching movies at kid camp, Bradley decides to lead his sister on what turns out to be a risky expedition. The twins end up running into an ugly, mysterious man who intrigues them and at dawn the twins follow him to his boat and chase him into the Mexican jungle. 

Will the twins be able to stop the man who claims to be taking over the ancient Mayan land or will they be stopped by the lord of the underworld?


Our Comments :

It has been a long time since we review a book in this blog . Earlier this week, we were offered the chance to review a children adventure story. Of course Mamarazzi jump for it as there is never too much book for me. Moreover now I have a new toy to read ebook with. 

What I like about this book is that it's fun and quite fast paced. Frankly, Mamarazzi  did not have high expectation on this book coz how much can an author cramp into 24 pages? But she was wrong. The author did a very good job. Had proper introduction and storyline . Plot was interesting too and I can say that it was not predictable at all. All blend in very well.

I think this book is suitable for children like me... from 7-10 years old. Not too many big words and the language was clean cut. No four letters word or offensive language. Yes, you'll be surprise that there are some children books that have offensive language

What I like to see if it's in paperback is that some fun illustration of the story lines in between pages. It would help kids to enjoy the book more .

I sincerely hope that this book will turn in to a series like Enid Blyton's Famous Five Series.

    1. Nope. They did not predict the world ends in 2012. What they predict was the rebirth . A new cycle and people mistook it as doomsday

    1. Totally agree with you there. MamarazzI used to do book review for Booksneeze. I love it especially when she did children book reviews. Too bad they don't send out physical book anymore. it's not possible to give a fair revier for those interactive books or those with CD/read along book with if they dOnt give out physical book.
