"I bought this for my son and for the whole week he was hypnotized! I read it along with him and I can see why. It's fun, believable, and best of all, stars my Jacob and his friend Bret as the intrepid detectives. Hope there's a sequel--he's already asking for a follow-up!"

"Thanks for another wonderful children's novel, The Secret Code. I've given each of your books to my grandkids as they've grown and this may be their favorite yet! My granddaughter especially is a fan of puzzles and riddles and she adored playing the sleuth in her own mystery."
- 'Gram' Shayna F., NY, USA
My son is not a huge reader and we forgot how long Treasure Island is - he read all 300 pages over the weekend! Maybe it was the pirate eyepatch and bandana we got him to go with the book ; ) Your books really do motivate kids to read!
