"The Archaeolojesters" was based on an unusual premise, three kids attempt to keep their town thriving through a plot to gain the attention of the world. Parts of the plot were ingenious, but so much of the plot was completely implausible. The characters were one-dimensional and the resolution was completely unbelievable, but the originality of the story made up for some of the glaring problems with the writing and plot construction. I would recommend this book to late elementary students and en ...more

Silver Birch nominee....

I really wanted to like this book more than I did - the characters were engaging and the story of how the kids created the tablet was wonderful. I couldn't help, however, feeling that the ending was a tad rushed and too-neatly put together - and that we were being set up for a sequel all along. I don't mind series books - but the first books should leave you wanting more, not expecting it. A fun read and kids will enjoy it.
Final note - loved that it was set in Manitoba!!

This one wasn't as good as the first. A little more excitement, though.
