Book Tour: Huber Hill and the Dead Man's Treasure

Book Tour: Huber Hill and the Dead Man's Treasure by B.K. Bostick

I am thrilled to be taking part in this book tour, and the author, B.K. Bostick has generously offered to sponsor a fantastic giveaway as well! The giveaway is posted IN THIS EVENT;)

This book is aimed at ages 9-12, and is an ideal fit for both Aaron and Joshua. Since I require them to read an hour each day, especially during summer vacation, Joshua has been reading books aloud to his two brothers. This is another one that they truly enjoyed.

The book description is: "When his grandfather dies, Huber Hill is devastated---until he opens Grandpa Nick's mysterious box. An old gold coin and directions to a hidden Spanish treasure send him and his friends off on an mind-blowing adventure, but he's not the only one on the hunt. Filled with dangerous animals and cryptic puzzles, this book will have you on the edge of your seat until the last page."

Those of you who know my boys, are aware of how much they LOVE a good mystery and puzzles. Combine that with some gold coins and treasure, and it sets the stage for excitement. They really enjoyed going on this journey, and since their dad's name is Nick, they got a kick out of talking about Grandpa Nick's mysterious box. Aaron draws illustrations daily, it is his creative outlet. Since he was very little, he has adored making Treasure Maps. They love to make them, take turns "hiding" treasure in the backyard, and then having their brothers go and find it. They are forevermore yelling "X MARKS THE SPOT".

I think that this is the first book published by B.K. Bostick, so my only complaint is that there aren't other stories of his for my boys to read. They immediately wanted to go to the library, just to make sure there weren't any other books of his there. We did find some other fun reads though, but with school starting next week, their adventure time is getting cut drastically very soon!


GIVEAWAY: I have TWO GIVEAWAYS associated with this tour, and they will be listed in tomorrow's A Blogtastic Extravaganza Event Post!

Mr Bostick would also like everyone to know that he is participating in a fundraiser for his neighbor Alyssa, and you can find more information at Treasure For Alyssa!

I am so glad bloggers like you take the time to post thorough book reviews. I like to read, but don't have a lot of time, so I use sites like yours to decide if a book is worth my time.

Thanks
