I bought this to read aloud for my 8 year old son. It was a really good mystery story (without any really scary stuff)! We couldn’t wait to read the next chapter to see what happened. Kept you at the edge of your seat but nothing inappropriate and kept you guessing to solve the mystery. Great book!
I didn’t personally read this, but my nine-year-old daughter has loved it, and read it a few times!
Read this to my kids. My 11 year old thought it was a little slow. They liked that it was a mystery and they were interested to find out what was going to happen.
It is easy to start reading because of the short chapters. As you progress the chapters get longer and It develops further. For me this is good because I don’t like reading long chapters. It start out short making it nice to read and kept me reading. The only thing I didn’t like is that the chapters get a little too long and boring at the end of the book. But I still read 3 chapters in a day because I wanted to find out what happened.
My 4th grade son read this independently and loved every chapter! After each time spent reading he would happily report everything that was going on within the chapters he had read. He even asked to read an extra chapter several days!
“My gracious!” breathed Phyllis. “Did you ever see anything so strange! What can it be?”
“And isn’t it beautiful!” added Leslie. “What can that queer creature be that’s carved on it? Looks to me like the pictures of dragons that we used to have in storybooks.”
“Let’s try now to get it open.”
After arriving at the seashore to care for her sick aunt, Leslie meets Phyllis, and the two girls become instant friends. When Leslie’s dog uncovers a mysterious treasure box, they are eager to figure out where it came from and what it contains. Mysterious lights, shadowy figures, stormy nights, and threatening messages are no match for the determined youngsters who will stop at nothing to solve this mystery. Can they protect the box long enough to discover its secrets?
