This review and many more can be found on my blog: Feed Your Fiction Addiction

This book is a hilarious and perilous adventure, filled with action, goofy puns, and a nice helping of heart. When I read the author's bios and saw that they write for kids' TV, it all made so much sense--the book reads like an animated movie. It's full of larger-than-life characters who make you laugh out loud (Captain Kevin Adventureson is incredibly clueless and yet full of himself, but he still manages to be lovabl

A perfect mix of silly and sweet, this book is a rollicking ride of crazy adventure, perfectly punny jokes, and lots of heart! Though not a middle grade reader, I was laughing right along with Captain Kevin, clinging to the edge of my seat at the end of every chapter, and loving all the twists and turns just like Dani. Looking forward to seeing where these Shipwreckers go next!

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for a review. I tried to review it as a book for middle aged children rather than as an adult reader.

From the silly title to the outrageous characters this book is definitely for the 10-13 year old group. I tried to read it through their lens. I know I have had 5th and 6th graders who would love this book. It's silly, fast paced, and fun. It's a little much for younger children, with some violence and loss of body parts, and a little too silly

This was SUCH A GREAT READ!

Seriously, I felt like I was strapping in for a "three hour tour" only to find out that it was SO MUCH MORE. We're talking Disney's Jungle Cruise elevated exponentially to the next level of adventure! We're speaking of a captain that would even give old Sparrow a run for his money (no really, he'd probably have him running after money because he's tricky like that...whether intentional or not!). We're going on about an ADVENTURE with MR. ADVENTURE(son) himself, burstin

The bad puns are non-stop as are the many times that Captain Kevin does dangerous things that put his two unexpected young companions in harm’s way. Finding treasure is the goal of the reckless ship owner and young Dani is happy to find herself on board with the adventuring seaman. Dani’s older brother Mike would prefer to read about adventure than experience it, but now finds himself on an unwanted quest for temple treasure hidden deep in the Amazon rainforest. Many of my 4th and 5th grade stud ...more

Shipwreckers is a ridiculously fun adventure chock-full of monsters, deathtraps, and puns. So ... many ... puns. Capt. Kevin could be the long-lost son of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft, if that son flunked out of trade school and had zero babysitting skills. A great read for action-loving middle graders.

I love the creativity and fun in this book! It takes a lot to motivate my 4th grade son to be captivated by a book, but this did the trick! Thanks for sending an ARC for review my way, Disney Books!

Mike and his little sister Dani get more than they bargained for when they get separated from their parents during an Amazon cruise. Reluctantly putting their trust in Captain Kevin, the two siblings find themselves on a quest for treasure, running for their lives, and battling mummies in an ancient tomb. Add in some crazy puns, an exhilarating plane ride, and an undercover waitress, and you have yourself a recipe for fun!
