The action picks up considerably, but, as in the earlier book, the overall story lacks a satisfying resolution. TREASURE ON SUPERSTITION MOUNTAIN picks up where the first book in the series left off, and it's best read after Missing on Superstition Mountain. Henry in particular develops as a character, showing courage and kindness and becoming the heart of the group.
Each dramatic scene moves the plot forward only incrementally, and the story seems to halt abruptly. Some of the mysterious characters from the first book don't appear in this installment, but others take a more prominent role. Many questions remain to be resolved in the third book.

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.
