Summer is the perfect time to encourage children to read! They have tons of time on their hands, many of the summer programs are running through the library, and without the stress of it being an assignment they can read purely for enjoyment. Treasure Hunters: Peril at the Top of the World is the newest installment of the Treasure Hunters series by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein.
Treasure Hunters: Peril at the Top of the World is a fun and exciting book that is great for kids from ages 8-12 and other fans of the series!
Mom and Daughter Thoughts
Patterson & Grabenstein have done it again with this hit series and the Kidd family. Just when the Kidd family thinks they have some time to rest and relax there is another treasure to be found! You’ll see below what Ava, who is 9, thinks about this novel and as a mom I love to see my kids enjoying what they read. Having a book series like this, that is fast paced, exciting, and still challenges young minds is wonderful!
As my children grow and change so does their interest in books. Ava enjoys this series because of the great relationships found throughout the series. She gets invested in what is happening with the family and that draws her interest even more when paired with the treasure hunts and adventures.
About the Book
Peril at the Top of the World does not disappoint from James Patterson. This installment of the Treasure Hunters series follows the Kidd family as they trek across Russia on the hunt for priceless stolen paintings from Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt. As they chase down a pack of fearless thieves young readers get to learn lessons in history, geography, and more! This novel is fast paced and packed with thrilling adventures. Readers won’t be able to put it down (a good problem for us parents)!
In my opinion there is nothing more amazing than seeing kids excited about reading and learning. During the summer months it is especially exciting considering this is learning they are not being “forced” to do! The book appeals to a variety of readers; there are many fun facets to the novel including treasure hunting, family adventures, art history, geography, and more. Ideally the book is considered appropriate for ages 8-12 in grades 3-7. Containing 384 pages the book seems large for a middle reader BUT the chapters are short and the action runs high, despite the length, kids will be flying through this one!
If your youngster is a fan of the series or if they are looking for something new and exciting to read, I’d recommend the book for sure!

While the series does follow the same family on all their adventures, new readers to the series will have no trouble enjoying Book 4 if they’ve yet to read the first three.
