About the Book
A rollicking new adventure story from the creator of Rip Haywire!
Rip Haywire thinks he's got it made. Instead of going to bed early, doing fractions and eating Brussels sprouts, he gets to accompany his soldier-of fortune dad on laughably dangerous international missions. He's the only 12-year-old in the world with a working knowledge of the Seven Most Common Booby Traps Used by Ancient Civilizations to Protect Their Precious Treasures. It sure beats school, right?
But Rip's life is about to change when his dad, in a sudden fit of responsibility, assigns Rip his toughest mission yet: a historically all-girls summer camp. Will Rip learn how to get along with his feminine camp mates, most of whom have never even seen a flame thrower, let alone used one to fend off a pack of rabid hyenas? Can Rip solve the mysteries that surround the camp and one intriguing girl in particular? Readers will follow Rip's misadventures in his whimsically illustrated journal, helping him to solve puzzles and beat the bad guys, as he learns that friendship can be more valuable than ancient treasure, and more powerful than a well-placed land mine.
My Take on the Book
This was a great book full of adventure, mystery and intrigue. You are left guessing until the end on whether Rip and his team will win or if they will actually make it through all of the twists and turns that they have encountered in their journey. The book also has some great humor that my tween daughter thought was funny. The illustrations in this book also are amazing. If you are a graphic novel fan or just a fan of these type of genres then pick this up today - you will not be disappointed!
