Trip Montgomery has no idea what is in store for him when he finds the dusty old trunk hidden under the floorboards in his mom’s attic. The trunk reveals a series of mysteries that send him on the greatest adventure of his life. Will his best friend Josh, and his new friend Sarah be able to help Trip solve the clues that lead to the greatest treasure ever known to man? Or will Trip’s obsession with the treasure drive him deep into the disorienting dreamland of his great grandfather Pappy?
First off I’ve had this book sitting on my Kindle for a while (since March) and I finally read it! I actually have the audible version too and that’s what we listened to (we did get this for free from Goodreads!) I say we because I listened to this with my son he’s never really heard an audio book but this is the kind of book that holds his interest. Yes, he’s a little young for the demographic of ‘middle grade’ but he’s reading that book group anyway. He really enjoyed it, he wanted to find out what’s happening next and the book wasn’t too long so it held his interest. The narrator did a fantastic job in his reading and his voices for the different characters. This book will also hold the interest of adults, it’s not silly like some kids books, and it really does feel like a “National Treasure” for kids. It’s a big treasure hunt and these kids follow clue after clue to find the mysterious treasure that Trip’s family has been after for several generations. There are obstacles a long the way and it’s all one grand adventure. This book is definitely worth a read, and we will more than likely read it again.
