One stormy night, the Kid family loses their father in the storm. With their mom missing as well, Tommy, Beck, Bick, and Storm Kid find themselves in a sinking ship in the middle of nowhere. Determined to finish what their parents started and hopefully find their parents, the Kid family sets out to follow their father’s cryptic clues, treasure map, and finish what their dad started. Dangerous, mysterious people like a pirate king and their father’s enemy, Nathan Collier, however, are determined to stop the Kid family succeeding at any cost. Will the Kids succeed? What really happened to their parents?

A fast-paced, must-read adventure for any treasure seeker at heart. The characters are funny and easy to connect with. The illustrations are amazingly detailed and fun to look at. Readers who are fans of James Patterson or who like adventure, pirates, and treasure will enjoy reading this book. EL, MS. ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
