Sunrise At The Mayan Temple

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

There was so much that didn’t make sense. The tickets that brought us here. The surprise of discovering it had been Roderick Kay talking so tough when normally he seemed so scared in front of Fred Jones. That strange doorway into the ground. The legends about a birdman. And a midnight journey into that jungle that left me four hours short of the sleep I had needed.

Book: Sunrise At The Mayan Temple by Sigmund Brouwer, Bethany House Publishers, 2004
Sunrise at the Mayan Temple (The Accidental Detectives Series #14) 
Genre: Adventure/Mystery
Target Audience: Boys 10-14
Subjects: Greed, friendship, love for others
Summary: It’s got to be a mix up. There is absolutely no way Joel is the Joel Kidd those 6 plane tickets to Mexico are for! And there’s no way his parents will let him go. Ricky has no expectations that he’ll actually find himself in Mexico, but all the parents agree and Lady Bugsby agrees to chaperone the trip so off they go to face the unknown dangers awaiting them!
Notes: In this book, Joel forms a friendship with an older man who rarely speaks to anyone, let alone befriends them. Then all of a sudden, plane tickets arrive for Joel and five others to travel to Mexico. Even though everyone is confident it is a mix up, they go anyway.  While there they receive a chance to help some hurting people. This is the 9th in the Accidental Detectives series, a series of books about Ricky Kidd, a young boy who often stumbles into mysteries and has to deal with a younger brother that drives him nuts.
Recommendation Scale: 3/5
