THE CRIMINALS IN THE CAYMANS by Connie Lee Berry is the first book of the Incredible Journey series. In this book for ages 7 to 9, we meet the Stone family, Sam, a second grader, Max, a third grader, Sydney their 2 year old sister and their parents. Mr. Stone is a lawyer for a large banking corporation, and their mother is a stay-at-home Mom.

Connie Berry got the idea for writing the Incredible Journey series from her eight year old who was complaining about writing a paragraph. She told him writing can be fun and to prove it, she was going to write a book for him and his brother to read. She believes reading and learning should be fun.

The book starts out right before spring break when the boys find out they are going to the Caymans. Mr. Stone has a business trip there and decides to take the family. Before they leave, two mysterious packages arrive on the doorstep addressed to Maxwell and Samuel. One had an old, frail map of the world with a title of Max and Sam’s Incredible Journey Map. In the lower right hand corner it was dated Oct. 11, 1964, over 40 years ago, and at the bottom was written, “May good fortune be with you.”

The other package contained a newspaper from 1955 and an old leather journal. Inside were several old, crackly, yellowed papers. The first one had ‘Notes taken wisely can be of great use to you’ written on it. This was used by Sam in the adventure.

An overheard conversation by Sam on the beach leads him to discover an outlaw fugitive on America’s Most Wanted staying in the same hotel. On the way to helping capture the fugitive, Max and Sam discovers their father is a FBI agent.

Berry has done a good job included facts about the Cayman Islands and a neat science page. This one was about dissecting owl pellets. Really great for grade school boys!

This is a good read for the grade school group. There is plenty of fun and adventure with a bit of mystery and pictures and illustrations highlighting the eleven chapters. The facts are suitable for grade schoolers like, turtle farming is big, and it’s part of the U.K. so it is ruled by Queen Elizabeth II. I recommend this book.
