What follows is a funny, unbelievable adventure that would wow almost any kid — but not Celia and Oliver. They still find it dirty, dangerous, and disgusting. This is a light-hearted, fun adventure that will appeal to both boys and girls. There is action, adventure, danger, and family issues. It is also very obvious that this will be a series. Though the main storyline in this book comes to a satisfying ending, the story is very definitely not over.
Normally, this irritates me, but I had so much fun reading this that I will forgive the obvious marketing ploy that will force me to purchase the following book s. Sep 30, Jacob Norby rated it really liked it. Personal Response In my opinion, this was a good book. The book was kind of strange at times but that kept the story interesting. I could relate to the main characters so that also made the story interesting to me. Their father, Dr. Navel, on the other hand is an explorer who usually attempts to bring the twins along with his crazy adventures.
Their mot Personal Response In my opinion, this was a good book. Their mother was also an explorer, but she went missing three years ago. At a dinner remembering her, Dr. Navel makes a bet with another explorer named Sir Edmund to see if Dr. Navel can find The Lost Library of Alexandria.
If Dr. Navel wins then Oliver and Celia get unlimited TV, if Sir Edmund wins then Oliver and Celia have to work for him whenever they have vacation until they turn So the twins and their father go out to far away lands to find the library and meet all sorts of challenges along the way.

Alexander London is an exciting addition to the world of adventure books for middle-grade readers. It is the relatable tale of two 11 year-old twins Celia and Oliver who would rather watch TV and eat junk food than travel the world with their two explorer parents. But when their mother disappears and their father is indisposed by poison witches in Tibet, they have no choice but to engage in an escapade where they find themselves face-to-face with an angry yeti, a We are Not Eaten by Yaks by C.
But when their mother disappears and their father is indisposed by poison witches in Tibet, they have no choice but to engage in an escapade where they find themselves face-to-face with an angry yeti, an evil imposter, complicated mysteries they must unravel, and much more. London subtly scatters his book with sophisticated vocabulary and the information he provides about the location of these exploits is bound to spark interest in his readers.
I got this book at the ALA conference when I told the Penguin Young Readers people my 9 year old son likes funny stories, and he doesn't really like to read. He read it in 2 nights and took it to school today to share with his class.
I was surprised because it's sort of a longer book for him, so I quizzed him on it and he actually had read it! I guess he's a fast reader when he feels like it.

Just like my kids! The mom gets kidnapped, and the kids must go with their dad to save her. Hilarity ensues. Also, there's a Yeti in it. What else do you need? What a pleasant surprise this was! I ordered it with a recent Scholastic book order because I liked the title and thought my son would enjoy it. We read a chapter together every night before bed, and he would often beg to keep reading!
Oliver and Celia are fun characters, and the people they meet along the way in their very reluctant adventure keep them and the reader on their toes. We can't wait to read about their next "accidental" adventure! Shelves: audiobooks , , adventure. This audiobook was a great amount of fun.
The two main characters, children of explorers, don't want to have adventures they just want to watch tv.

But it turns out all the tv actually helps them out many times throughout the book. A few times I worried that the Tibetan accent was a bit stereotypical. But the fun of the book never waned, and quite clearly a sequel is on the way. Very neat book, perfect my kids! My kids have now read this twice! They really love it. Totally impressed!

This is a delightful read for Tweens. I definitely recommend it for those who enjoy adventure with a hint of mystery and like a quick read. Apr 08, Stephanie rated it liked it Shelves: audiobooks , books-read-with-a. Need to finish!!!!

We were close to the end when it finally came due. Sep 18, Jaclyn rated it liked it. A juvenile adventure story. I do want to read the other books in the series now. It is about a brother and sister who are twins who end up on an adventure searching for their mother who has been missing when they would ne rather at home watching TV. Mar 03, Pam rated it really liked it. Children of explorers who don't want to explore. Mom goes missing, and Dad makes an outrageous bet. This forces them into action.
