X Marks the Spot
The press have been a real headache for Ollie and his family, since Ollie helped his best friend Moxie outwit a gangster and recover a stolen art masterpiece. (read about it here) Ollie escapes the media by going to wilderness scout camp on the Boston Harbor islands. Ollie may have to graduate from sidekick to mastermind as he encounters new friends, bullies, an intense game of camp tag and possible buried pirate treasure. I recommend Ollie and the science of Treasure Hunting by Erin Dionne to readers in grades four and up. Be sure to drop into one of our libraries on Sept 19th and make a pirate inspired craft in celebration of Talk Like a Pirate Day.
