The Mystery of the Silver Statue is an amazing story for young readers and adults alike! It includes heroic deeds, the search for buried treasure, and lessons on overcoming real-life struggles. This is a must read for any youngster. It's fast-paced, exciting, and its lessons are priceless. Best friends B.T. and Jimmy are fishing on the bank of a river when B.T. notices some movement at an old abandoned house. With the help of some spy knowledge, they embark on a quest to find an old statue from the revolutionary war. Their journey almost gets one of them captured by two robbers searching for the statue as well, and forces them to figure out numerous puzzles. My boys 9 and 5 were on the edges of their seats, listening to the adventures of these two Vermont boys. This story is based on a real mystery from Vermont's history and really brings the reader into the story. It's not easy to write history and get young readers to enjoy it, the Ray Perkins did a great job of intertwining the history and creative writing. Excellent for young readers!! And look for his new book "The Mystery of the Brick Kingdom" Due out this spring. It's sure to be a great book!! Follow Ray Perkins on Facebook for up to date info on his book series.
