Captain Drake is still after Dessa, Topper, and Fisk. He even reluctantly consults a Tarot Card Reader (who looks suspiciously familiar), but little does he know that the three thieves have taken to the sea. They are on a smugglers ship and when they are taken by pirates Dessa’s map is taken, the one thing that she believes could lead to her kidnapped brother.
Its official, I have given up on this series for elementary school. It’s a great read, but its growing more complex and serious than the fun of the first three books, a bit too much for elementary. At least in my demographic the tarot card reading component could result in some serious parent drama. I think this series is worth a try with middle schooler as it remains fairly wholesome (no romance, no swearing) while evolving into more complexity as the series progresses.
