Graysen Foxx and the Treasure of Principal Redbeard

I was recently invited to review the new book, Graysen Foxx and the Treasure of Principal Redbeard, and was sent a copy for this purpose. Today I am happy to let you know about this fun story the young readers in your life are sure to enjoy!

Graysen Foxx and the Treasure of Principal Redbeard

Author - J. Scott Savage

Publisher - Shadow Mountain

Ages - 8-12

The publisher says; "Ordinary Elementary is anything but ordinary. Below the classrooms are winding, abandoned, underground passages filled with lost treasures. Fifth-grader Graysen Foxx, aka The Gray Fox―finder of secrets, solver of mysteries, and explorer of the unknown―is hot on the trail of the legendary treasure of Principal Redbeard, which includes decades of confiscated gadgets, rare comic books, first-edition Pokémon trading cards, an original Rubik’s Cube, and a retro handheld video game.

Graysen is determined to find the treasure and share it with his fellow students. His nemesis, Raven Ransom―nicknamed “Red Raven”―plans to stop him and claim the prizes for herself, just like she did with the game-winning home run kickball everyone thought was lost on the roof of the school.

Wearing his adventurer-iconic fedora, journaling in his field notebook, and wielding his elastic stretchy hand, Graysen is ready for action. But can he avoid the second-grade spy network working for Raven? Could the third-grade twins, Maya and Jack, give him an advantage? Can he avoid the ruthless sixth graders while trying to protect the innocent first graders? And who is the mysterious Midnight Moth who is leaving cryptic notes and riddles?

It's a battle between courage and cunning, smarts and shrewdness, charity and cheating. With the treasure on the line, can Graysen trust his rival―or is it just another one of her traps? May the best treasure hunter win!

I found the book to be a fun read with just the right amount of mystery and excitement for young readers. I love how the author is a grandpa! I'm also happy Graysen is a character with character - he wants to help others. I hope there are more books in the works with Graysen.

If you are looking for a new book for the children you love to enjoy during Spring Break or over Summer Vacation, Graysen Foxx and the Treasure of Principal Redbeard is absolutely the book to get! Enjoy!
