I have received a free e-copy of the book Sign of the Green Dragon by C Lee McKenzie for son1 to review. To find out more about the author you may visit her website.
Here is the book blurb.
Three plucky sleuths. A crumbling skeleton. A buried treasure.
After six months in a new school, Sam’s finally fitting in. He’s the one kid with enough talent to hit the winning home run and bring the baseball trophy back to Haggarty Elementary. But Sam’s guardian is shipping him off to boarding school before that can happen.
When teammates, Joey and Roger, hear his bad news, they plot to hide him until the big game. Their secret cave is a perfect place until an earthquake shatters a wall and reveals a wooden chest with a red-eyed dragon carved into its top. Inside, a bony hand clutches a map with a note, promising treasure.
With Joey and Roger, Sam sets off to track down the clues and hopefully discover treasure. When some puzzle pieces start to make sense, the boys become lost in a labyrinth of underground tunnels, trapped by dangerous thieves and sealed inside an airless tomb.
Sign of the Green Dragon gets a high five for fantasy, fun and some fearsome adventure. If you like intrepid would-be knights on impossible and dangerous quests, you’ll love this story. As one reader says, this book, “has more twists than a dragon’s tail.”
Sam is about to win the baseball cup for his school team, but his guardian, Uncle Jasper plans to send him off to a boarding school. So he and his friends go to hide in a cave until the big game. But they discover a note which sets them off on a treasure trail.
Here is son1’s video review.
Sign of the Green Dragon is available on Amazon, currently priced at £5.19 in paperback or 99p on Kindle. It is targeted at boys age 9-12. Son1 really enjoyed this mystery adventure book, with lots of clues. Highly recommended. And I love the cover image too, which is intriguing, making you want to jump into the book. With both that and son1’s recommendation, I plan to read this myself too.
And watch out for a giveaway of this book on my blog soon.
