Treasure in Tahiti by Connie Lee Berry is the second book of the Incredible Journey series. In the first book, we met the Stone family and the Incredible Journey map. A ‘W’ had mysteriously appeared on the map beside the Cayman Islands, where book one’s adventure was.

This adventure takes place in the summer when Mr. Stone has to go to Tahiti for a week long business trip and decides to take the family along. The plan is a family vacation for the first week, and then Mr. Stone will stay for his business week.

Since this was a last minute decision, all had to pack up and leave the next morning. After a long flight to Tahiti and a scary taxi cab ride up a winding mountainous road, the family discovers their vacation cabin has only 3 walls, along with a fire pit, jugs of water and soda, a box of can goods, four cots, and a big mosquito net. The view of the ocean, the private beach, the lush, green forest, and gorgeous sunsets makes up for the hardship.

As in the first book, there is a fact sheet on the Tahiti Islands. Also the science page is how sand filters water and how to make your own sand water filter. Something I didn’t know.

The island adventure starts with ocean fishing, and after catching a small shark we see the Stone family males are not outdoorsmen. Next, Max finds a sealed jar under a floorboard and it contains a map, a treasure map. The treasure is on a small island near by, protected by warnings and a hermit. After solving the puzzling landmarks, the boys found the treasure, which were bonds and gold coins from a bank robbery in 1904. Their reward was a write up in the local newspaper and the vacation hut and land.

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 ten chapters. The mysterious map now has an ‘I’ that appeared beside Tahiti. What does this mean? We’ll have to read to whole series to find out.
