Synopses & Reviews
As in the middle grade series debut Island of Thieves, scrappy twelve-year-old Tom Trelawney and his swashbuckling Uncle Harvey are a dynamite combination—in the dangerous, explosive sort of way. This time around, they impulsively fly from Ireland to India in hot pursuit of a small bejeweled tiger that yet another Trelawney, a British soldier, allegedly plundered in 1799. Theyre pretty sure they can get a couple million dollars for it too, if they can make it past a gun-happy Aussie and a pit of man-eating tigers.
"[A] rip-roaring adventure."
"Hand this fun adventure series to future fans of Clive Cussler."
"A rollicking story that works as a stand alone and is a great choice for reluctant readers, especially those looking for books with male protagonists."
—School Library Journal
