Book Giveaway: Young Whit and the Traitor's TreasureOctober 3, 2018
My two elementary aged children are great readers and I owe a lot of that to their school and their encouragement to have them read every night for at least 15 minutes. We are always searching for books and have been enjoying reading all about Young Whit and the Traitor's Treasure. It was the first time my son read a historical story and it encouraged him to seek out other similar books. We want to look for the original Adventures in Odyssey series, too!
My son is 9 and he really enjoyed the adventurous story of Johnny and his family as they start a new life in Provenance, NC. There is much to explore in this hefty read -- with over 200 pages, it is a great book to listen to and discuss further with your child. It was hard for Johnny to start a new school and was bullied by one and accused of stealing by another. The story mentions the Civil War and slavery, so there is lots to discuss. A great historical read for kids.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
"Kids are going to love this new series!
This Odyssey book series explores the history of the much-loved character John Avery Whittaker. The series introduces newcomers to the larger world of Odyssey. For readers who are already Odyssey-philes, the novels provide the history of the franchise’s most important character.
Whit and his family (father, Harold; stepmother, Fiona; half-sister, Charlie) have just moved to Provenance, NC, in the middle of the Great Depression. Harold will be teaching at nearby Duke University. Not-quite-10-year-old Johnny soon makes a friend in Emmy, who lives across the street and joins him in his adventures. At his new school, he encounters a bully who makes his life miserable, and he makes a new friend in Huck, the custodian. Both of them play key roles in the mysteries and action.
The central mystery in book 1 involves Confederate gold missing since the end of the Civil War and the question of whether Johnny’s ancestor was the coward and thief who stole it, as everyone believes."
Young Whit and the Traitor’s Treasure is the first book in the series and is written by Phil Lollar and Dave Arnold.
