If you like stories about looking for treasure, then here are some other books about treasure hunts you might like to read during BOOK WEEK 2018.
In a recent post, I revealed my favourite book when I was growing up was Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. It features the most memorable treasure hunt in fiction.
But it’s not the only one.
If you like looking for treasure and you like stories about looking for treasure, then here are some other books you might like to read during BOOK WEEK 2018.
THE PIE RATS (Series) – Dr Cameron Stelzer
Aussie author Cam Stelzer delivers a thrilling collection of swashbuckling adventures. Jam packed with plenty of humour, action and pies. Suitable for young scallywags aged 8 and up, there are six books in the series.
FIVE ON A TREASURE ISLAND – Enid Blyton
Storm savaged shipwrecks, hidden dungeons in castle ruins and the lure of promised gold. This Blyton classic has it all.
SPOT’S TREASURE HUNT – Eric Hill
If you have a soft spot for Spot the dog, you’ll love this book for older toddlers. There are riddles and flaps galore as you help Spot find six hidden treasures.
THE STORY OF THE TREASURE SEEKERS – E. Nesbitt
What do you do when you’re broke? Search for treasure of course! That’s what the six Bastable children decide to do when their family is strapped for cash. But as any pirate knows, the journey to find your treasure can often be more rewarding than the treasure itself. That’s the message behind this book (which, ok, doesn’t actually contain a treasure hunt). More suited to older readers, this is one of JK Rowling’s favourite books.
TREASURE HUNTERS (Series) – James Patterson (with Chris Grabenstein & Mark Shulman)
Treasure hunting is even more important to the four Kidd kids when nasty pirates kidnap their mum and hold her to ransom. From the Nile to the City of Gold, this five-book series follows their adventures to get her back.
