Join the Explorer's Club in another exciting adventure! This time they uncover a mysterious box in the roots of an old tree, where it's been hidden for over a hundred years. This chapter book for early readers, ages 6 to 10, returns with Dirkle, his little brother Quid Smat, along with Toonie Oobles, Fiddy Bublob, and the inventor of the roto-scooter and the Lumleyline, the creative genius, Bean Lumley. Travel with them in Bean's latest invention - a special submarine. Illustrated throughout with bonus pages for readers to form their own Explorer's Club.

Yet another Dirkle Smat adventure that your kids are going to love. Lynn Garthwaite always delivers a fun, adventurous, outrageous book with this Dirkle Smat series.

As with her other books the characters have silly names, they have unbelievable inventions, and their adventures are too much fun.

The book is fairly short, divided into chapters and great for the younger reader. It's also cute without being cutesy, so parents will enjoy reading it to young children.

So far Garthwaite hasn't disappointed and this series gets a 5 out of 5 from me.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
