There is a legend that a pirate buried his treasure somewhere on the Boston Harbor Islands.
There is a legend that a pirate buried his treasure somewhere on the Boston Harbor Islands. For centuries people have searched for it in vain, until Ollie, the main character of the new book, “Ollie and the Science of Treasure Hunting” by Erin Dionne, came along.
Ollie is a famous boy that found the stolen art of the Gardner Museum art heist in “Moxie and the Art of Rule Breaking.” Now cameras follow him, news reporters cover his lawn, and his family must sneak through the backdoor if they need to go somewhere. Ollie had to get away from the chaos, so his mother sent him to a two week camp on the Boston Harbor Islands where he would learn how to navigate. But Ollie can’t seem to stay out of the spotlight.
It all started when Grey, a friend of Ollie’s, stumbles across a cave on Gallows Island. Chris, another friend, and Ollie look around with Grey. Then, when Ollie leans on what he thought was a rock wall, it breaks. Instead of rock, it turns out that the wall was made of wood and Ollie’s hand has hit some kind of chamber full of rocks. After stuffing a few in his pocket, Ollie and his friends go back to camp. There, Ollie washes the mysterious rocks and reveals their secret…diamonds. Ollie, Chris, and Grey have stumbled across the pirate’s treasure. Now, the adventure begins.
“Ollie and the Science of Treasure Hunting” by Erin Dionne is appropriate for all ages. It captivates you from the very first page. Even though this is the sequel to “Moxie and the Art of Rule Breaking,” you don’t need to read the first book to understand this one. It is very humorous and is a must-read for mystery and adventure lovers. Will Ollie and his friends be able to keep the treasure out of enemies’ hands? Find out when you read the book.
