Publisher's Summary

Eleven-year-old twins Oliver and Celia Navel could care less about adventure and they really do not like excitement. They’d rather be watching television. Unfortunately for them, their thrill-seeking parents have dragged them from continent to continent their entire lives. But when their mother goes missing and their father makes a bet with the devious explorer Sir Edmund, the twins are forced into action. They head to Tibet where they fall out of airplanes, battle Yetis, poison witches, and encounter one very large yak.

If they can unravel the mysteries and outwit Sir Edmund, they might just make the discovery of a lifetime...and get cable television!

"Thrilling and delightful! Finally, an adventure of the very best kind - the kind that happens to other people." (Pseudonymous Bosch, NYT best-selling author of The Secret series)

Wonderful story

This book is filled with adventure and humor and is great for both girls and boys. My seven year olds loved it. I wish they had the other three books in this series on audible. It is great for a long car ride. We first read this book last year when the kids were 6. It is well written and enjoyable to parents as well.

Religious Adventure

Would you try another book from C. Alexander London and/or Vance Barber?

i doubt it

What three words best describe Vance Barber’s performance?

adequate

Any additional comments?

I had hoped to find an adventure story for the kids, but this book had a lot of religion in it.
If your family practices Buddhism you may enjoy it very much.
