Overview
The Goonies meets Indiana Jones and James Patterson's Treasure Hunters in this funny, action-filled adventure series

Twelve-year-old Addison Cooke just wishes something exciting would happen to him. His aunt and uncle, both world-famous researchers, travel to the ends of the earth searching for hidden treasure, dodging dangerous robbers along the way, while Addison is stuck in school all day.

Luckily for Addison, adventure has a way of finding the Cookes. After his uncle unearths the first ancient Incan clue needed to find a vast trove of lost treasure, he is kidnapped by members of a shadowy organization intent on stealing the riches. Addison's uncle is the bandits' key to deciphering the ancient clues and looting the treasure . . . unless Addison and his friends can outsmart the kidnappers and crack the code first. So it's off to South America, where the excitement, danger, gold, booby traps, and car chases are never-ending

Full of laugh-out-loud moments and nonstop action, and perfect for fans of Indiana Jones or James Patterson's Treasure Hunters series, Addison Cooke and the Treasure of the Incas is sure to strike gold with kid readers.

Praise for Addison Cooke and the Treasure of the Incas

"Combines the derring-do of Indiana Jones with a genuine archaeological mystery. Stokes brings a cinematic scope to the story. This lively debut promises more seat-of-the-pants thrills for readers who love adventure."--Booklist

"Cinematic pacing and action drive the story, but it's Addison and his friends who will keep readers engaged. Humor is never in short supply . . . and Addison's endless optimism and irrepressible confidence in his own abilities are endearing. A solid start to a new series, with a conclusion that will leave readers hoping Addison and company return soon for another adventure."--School Library Journal

"Addison is often one step ahead of the adults, but his lead is constantly threatened, building steady tension throughout the novel, screenwriter Stokes's debut."--Publishers Weekly

Raised by his archaeologist aunt and uncle, 12-year-old Addison Cooke is quite sophisticated for his age, as well as incredibly well-read and drawn to adventure. When a nefarious organization takes his aunt and uncle hostage in order to track down a long-lost Incan treasure, Addison, his sister Molly, and friends Eddie and Raj combine their individual talents to rescue them. Despite elements that require suspension of disbelief (such as Addison sweet-talking the group’s way into first class, all while traveling sans guardian), the stakes feel high—the villains aren’t shy about attempting to eliminate the meddlesome kids. Addison is often one step ahead of the adults, but his lead is constantly threatened, building steady tension throughout the novel, screenwriter Stokes’s debut. While Addison’s maturity and extensive knowledge are integral to the plot’s momentum, his overconfidence can make him something of a caricature. Featuring a combination of history, settings, and adventure-fueled action, this cinematic novel should still leave many readers awaiting Addison and company’s next escapade. Ages 8–12. Agent: Brianne Johnson, Writers House. (Oct.)
