After Jack, Frances, Harold, Alexander, and some new Wanderville citizens are chased out of their new home by the town policeman, the kids decide it is time to hop on a train and start a new life in California. However, they couldn’t have predicted meeting a hobo on the train that points them in the direction of treasure. Suddenly the kids from Wanderville find themselves chasing after a perhaps-nonexistent treasure and scrambling to escape the adults who will stop at nothing to make sure the kids end up at a place even worse than the Pratcherd’s.
Wanderville: On Track for Treasure is an intriguing book by Wendy McClure. Anyone who read and enjoyed the first Wanderville will enjoy the second one as well. It is a complete matter of opinion, but I feel that the first one is slightly better then the second one, only because it seems to have a better plot.
Also, titles can be deceiving. Wanderville: On Track for Treasure is not all about treasure. In fact, the treasure plays a very little part in this book. Therefore, if you are reading the book solely because of the treasure, this might not be the novel for you.
If you don’t particularly care about the part the treasure plays, then hooray! This book is a fun read, and you wouldn’t want to miss it.
This book would be most fit for kids around 8-10 years old. But if you’re older than that and have some extra time on your hands, then pick up this book! Don’t mistake this book for silly and babyish. I assure you, it’s not!
This book is definitely worth your time. If you see it at your library, then grab it! Read it! You won’t be disappointed!
