This laugh-out-loud novel by Emily Fairlie is a fresh take on the classic mystery caper. It's perfect for fans of From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, Chasing Vermeer, The Westing Game, and the Mysterious Benedict Society books. Using a unique blend of notes, lists, and classic prose, The Lost Treasure of Tuckernuck tells the story of Bud and Laurie's quest to find the infamous Tutweiler Treasure. They're hot (or at least lukewarm) on the trail of scavenger hunt clues, but time is running out-the school board wants to tear down Tuckernuck Hall. Can Bud and Laurie find the treasure before it's lost forever? Readers can enjoy solving puzzles along with the characters, and teachers will appreciate references to famous artists and architects such as Pablo Picasso and Frank Lloyd Wright. There is something for everyone in this treasure trove of wry wit, thrilling adventure, and undeniable heart!

A fun puzzler for those who like adventure stories with a twist. The narration rotates between the male and female main characters, who learn to work together in order to win big.

A lighthearted mystery about two sixth graders reluctantly drawn into an 80-year-old treasure hunt at their odd school. I enjoyed it, but it didn't blow me away.
