Kregel - Andrea Carter and the Trouble with Treasure - Review

TOS Crew Review

Product - Book - Andrea Carter and the Trouble with Treasure by Susan K. Marlow. Part of the Circle C adventure Series.

Publisher - Kregel Publications

Price - $7.99

Reading Level - 8 - 12 years old.

This 144 page book is packed with adventure. Set in 1881, four young teenagers head off into the mountains, for a summer camping trip, hoping to find gold. There are many shocking twists and turns. It certainly held my attention. This a Christian- based book and has a wonderful ending. The only drawback for me, was the subject matter, which did not interest me. I am not the kind of girl who enjoys reading about tomboys or descriptive explanations of handling a terrifying wound (did you just see me faint? - smiles). However, the book is very well written and would be a great addition to your home library.

The author is a homeschooling Mother and lives in Washington State. She has written 6 books in this series.

Mrs White, I concur entirely! :) So glad that I'm not the only one prone to those fainting spells... ;) (Even if I do appreciate the subject matter a little more, I'm NOT a fan of those descriptions!)

Hi, Mrs. White and Purple Squirrel!
You should hear me tell the story of David and Goliath to the children's church group (ages 3-5). They eat that stuff up. And nope. I don't end at the rock in the forehead part (where they ended the story for me growing up). I tell the "rest of the story."
Quick! Get the smelling salts. :-)

Seriously, I do have to say that .. . My daughter (she has 6 homeschooled children and 1 on the way), had to stop reading the Voice of the Martyrs magazine because it was simply too much for her. So I understand where y'all are coming from.

Thanks for the fun review.

In Christ,
