X Marks the Spot by Erin Soderberg -- ADVISABLE
Wally and the other Puppy Pirates are back, and this time they're following a treasure map. It's a tough task, though. The island they're on is filled with booby traps set by a protective pack of treasure pups. Plus, as it turns out, the X isn't always as obvious in person as it is on a map.
With its frequent illustrations, short chapters, high-interest topics, quick pace, and slightly larger font, this 88-page story is perfect for students who are just beginning to read chapter books.
