Brother and Sister, Bubba and Squirt travel through the hole that they dug with a magic spade that took them in their first book to China. This time the hole takes them to the jungles of Belize to a Mayan ruin site where they discover all about the Mayan Indians and their culture.

When they exit the hole they find themselves right next to an archaeological dig site and are welcomed by the daughter of the archaeologist, though her father isn’t pleased to s

It's easy to see why this author has won so many book awards for her previous releases! This book is well-written, well-paced, and unique.

This is the second book in the 'Bubba and Squirt' adventure series. I feel the story can easily be read as a standalone.

There is a lot to like about this book, especially the friendly sibling banter between younger brother, Bubba, and his older sister, Squirt; the well-described setting for their adventures in the jungles of Belize; the historical significance

If you’ve read the book Bubba and Squirt’s Big Dig to China, by Sherry Ellis, you met Bubba and Squirt, brother and sister, who dug a hole with the magic shovel Grandpa gave them and ended up in China. Well, they’re at it again. The latest adventure of the two explorers starts with a dream that Bubba has where his Great-Great-Grandpa Jacob tells him that it’s important to go down the hole again, but not to China. Who are they to argue with their great-great grandpa? So, they're off again. This t ...more

This is the second book in a series, but the author catches the reader up enough that it can be read as a standalone. I still, however, would recommend reading these in order

Bubba has a dream, making it clear that it's time for him and Squirt to revisit the hold they'd dug one month before—the same one that brought them to their first adventure in China. Despite Squirt's reluctance, she agrees, and the two find themselves in Belize. There they discover someone has been stealing artifacts, and an

Another fun adventure with Bubba and Squirt.
This time Bubba had a dream to come to Mexico to an excavation side of the ancient Mayan, to help to find out who was steeling their finds.
Hesitating first, they both decided to follow Bubba's dream. They went to the hole Bubba had made. Here they were swept away and arrived at the excavation side.
Then the incredible adventure begins, with finding out, what powers Bubba has.
I recommend the book

Those intrepid young explorers Bubba and Squirt are off to a new adventure in the second book in an entertaining middle-grade series from author Sherry Ellis. In "Bubba and Squirt's Mayan Adventure", Bubba and his big sister Squirt find themselves in Belize (a country located on the northeastern coast of Central America) at the site of an ancient Mayan archaeological dig. The detective-minded duo, who come from a family of magicians, are no strangers to mystical mysteries. Their first escapade o ...more

A story that can make you smile or makes you wonder about something is a good read no matter what age group it is written for.

BUBBA AND SQUIRT’S MAYAN ADVENTURE is just that kind of book. It’s listed as a middle grade or juvenile fiction genre, but it is a fun read no matter your age. The author combines mystery and the past into a fascinating adventure.

The story is a great way to get youngsters interested in history and learning while reminding adults about some of the mysteries of the world. T

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy from the MC Book Tours. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Bubba and Squirt's Mayan Adventure by Sherry Ellis is an excellent little short read about going on an adventure with two young kids.

Fearless Bubba is balanced by his more practical older sister, Squirt, in this fun, fast-paced adventure for young readers. Set in the rich atmosphere of a Mayan ruin in the jungles of Belize, the story gives readers insight into Mayan culture as well as archaeology. I particularly enjoyed having mythology woven into the story. An engaging narrative that's alternately told from the first-person perspectives of Bubba and Squirt.

This is the 2nd in a series, and as someone who hasn't yet read the

This is SUCH a fun book! I adored Bubba and Squirt. They're interesting characters who have different personalities. This brother and sister team love each other and respect each other, even when they drive each other a little batty!

I loved the visit to an archeological dig and a look at the Mayan culture as well as the current Belize culture. The interesting characters and a plot that keeps spinning in interesting directions will be loved by both kids and adults alike. I'm also looking forward

Bubba and Squirt's Mayan Adventure is a delightful celebration of imagination. It's a mystery, an adventure, and a fantasy rolled into one. The brother-sister team are magically transported to South America, but reading this book was like being transported back to when I was little.
Sherry Ellis masterfully jumps from the perspective of Bubba to Squirt and back again, giving us two very distinct voices to enjoy. I especially loved that the end came with some context to the places and people as

Bubba and Squirt are in it again--The portal to another exciting place, that is!
This brother-sister team make middle grade adventures fun again. They complement each other's skills and intellects in a good hearted way to solve this new Mayan mystery. The bonus is the hidden cultural facts and excellent recipes to try!

I learned a lot about the Mayan culture reading Sherry Ellis's Bubba and Squirt's Mayan Adventure. Ellis provides dual protagonists in this Middle Grade chapter book, alternating though the chapters. This allows for two perspectives throughout the story, one a little younger and more adventurous, Bubba the brother, and the other a little older, Squirt the sister, the more cautious and perhaps a bit of a non-believer.

Through a magical tunnel in their backyard, the brother sister team visit Beliz
