Kids say (2):

Like the first book, Danger Down the Nile is long at nearly 500 pages, but the illustrations -- and constant adventure -- make it a fun read that's hard to put down, even for reluctant readers. Fans of Treasure Hunters will find much of the same here, including fiercely loyal siblings who use their talents -- including Storm's brain, Tommy and the twins' diving skills, and more -- to get out of tight spots and find "the real treasures": their missing parents.

With so much going on all the time, the plot is a little hard to follow, but with coded messages, shark attacks, and more, readers will be too caught up in the action to care. Along the way, tweens will learn some cool trivia, including that "sounder" is the collective noun for warthogs and that Chinese explorers initially believed a giraffe skeleton was actually a unicorn.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
