Island of Thieves

0 0 5 Author: Josh Lacey
An “action-packed, danger-filled, Indiana Jones-like tale”—first in the Tom Trelawney series from the author of the Dragonsitter books (School Library Journal).

“Only boring people get bored … Interesting people can always find something to be interested in. ”

That’s what Tom Trelawney’s father says, anyway. Tom shouldn’t have been interested in playing with matches but he was … bored. Now the shed is in ashes and strange Uncle Harvey is the only one willing to have him stay while his parents vacation

Tom soon discovers Harvey is going to South America on a treasure hunt and though nephews aren’t invited, he manages to tag along. Before it’s over he’ll drive a car, fire a gun and run for his life. Tom realizes that life may be about following the rules, but survival may be about breaking them.

“With its movie-poster cover and fast-paced storyline, Island of Thieves will entertain kids of all ages. ”—Wired

“Irresistibly funny and action-packed, this well-paced, smartly-written crime caper is just the thing for bored boys. Uncle Harvey is a wonderful comic creation; more, please!”—The London Times

“An enjoyable escapade, delivered with wit, wisdom and just a bit of history thrown in for good measure. ”—Kirkus Reviews

“Nonstop action … This is a fine choice to add to a ‘Guys Read’ list. ”—VOYA

“A thrilling adventure. ”—The Guardian
