“What to give the kid who’s read all the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson books? Try Addison Cooke.” –Parents Magazine
Last fall author Jonathan W. Stokes burst on the children’s book scene with Addison Cooke, a smooth-talking, refined twelve-year-old who loves a grand adventure. The first book in the Addison Cooke series, Addison Cooke and the Treasure of the Incas was an instant favorite as reviewers raved about the “throwback charm” (Common Sense Media) calling it “an exciting Indiana Jones-style tale” (Good Housekeeping). As one reviewer at School Library Journal put it: “Cinematic pacing and action drive the story, but it’s Addison and his friends who will keep readers engaged…will leave readers hoping Addison and company return soon for another adventure.”
ADDISON COOKE AND THE TOMB OF THE KHAN
By Jonathan W. Stokes
Addison Cooke is back in his latest laugh-out-loud adventure: ADDISON COOKE AND THE TOMB OF THE KHAN (Philomel; on sale November 14, 2017; grades 3-7). Complete with a cast of funny, kid-friendly characters reminiscent of The Goonies, and a quest to discover ancient secrets, Addison strikes gold once again in his second adventure: this time a journey through Asia in pursuit of the legendary tomb of Genghis Khan.
Fresh off a victorious treasure hunt and rescue mission in South America, Addison Cooke just cannot seem to avoid rogue bandits, pesky booby traps, and secret treasure troves lined with gold. Such is the life of a junior archaeologist. Just as reliably, as Addison attracts adventure, his aunt and uncle attract kidnappers! This time they find themselves becoming the pawn in a Chinese gang’s plan to steal the Khan’s most prized possession, his golden whip. When a third player enters the race, a Russian gang intent on nabbing the goods and exacting revenge for what happened with the treasure of the Incas, Addison and his friends find themselves once again caught in the middle, trying to rescue his family and stop the treasure from falling into the wrong hands!
