Just another WordPress.com site

By: Thea Stilton

It all starts when the Thea sisters’ biology professor disappears. The girls are unwilling to wait so set out to see if they can find him. They get to his lab they hear an alarm, so they investigate. Fortunately they are able to decipher a message the professor is sending and they venture out underwater to rescue him. In the process they find out about a shipwreck and a priceless jewel and of course some mice who want to keep it all for themselves.

Just when it seems this adventure is over they are invited to China to help a friend of Violet’s find another treasure – the Jade of Truth from an old Chinese tale. Will they be able to uncover the clues that have been hidden for so long and keep such a precious treasure out of the paws of Madame Hu?

In this installment the sister’s take us on not one but two adventures. The pace remains brisk and the stories are fun, not too scary even when the girls get trapped or kidnapped. The journey through China comes with snippets of facts from both modern and ancient times. These girls have adventures all over the world and are capable of doing so many things, it is wonderful to see characters like this. Silly as it may sound it shows girls don’t need to be limited in what they want to do. These are a fun addition to any shelf.
