Jam packed with Indiana Jones-type adventure!
Jay and Lila Cooper travel to Nepur with their archaeologist father to uncover the truth behind an ancient legend. The people of Nepur fear a dark cavern called the Dragon¿s Throat. Deep under the earth the Coopers discover a bronze door that is said to bring death to any who tries to open it. <BR/><BR/>But the Coopers are not afraid of any legend. They study the door, try to open it, and go on a mysterious and dangerous hunt for a special key. Is there really a massive treasure behind the Door in the Dragon¿s Throat? Or could there be a reason no one has ever managed to open it?<BR/><BR/>This was an exciting read, jam packed with Indiana Jones-type adventure and a wonderful plot for a book this short. Peretti is a wonderful storyteller who doesn¿t need hundreds of pages to entertain. The characters were brave, honest, and fun to read. I highly recommend this book for readers of all ages.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Cooper Kids Series is a MUST HAVE.
I discovered The Cooper Kids Adventure Series 10 years ago and they are still my favorite. At the time I was a 4th grade school teacher. I began reading one to my class aloud and everyone was hooked by the first page (Including me). Since then I had kept them in my classroom library but couldn't keep them on the shelves. It has the excitement and adventure that young readers thirst for. Even those who don't like to read discover the enjoyment of getting lost in these books. Jay and Lila Cooper show children that although they are young they can be mighty through God and how to turn to Him whenever anything is too big for them to handle. I now am enjoying them all over again, reading them to my three boys (3,5,&7)before bedtime. It creates a special time for our family to share. Note: Since Frank Peretti has an gift at painting pictures in great detail with in his writing...if you have very young children that are listening in (2-5) you may want to omit or gently rephrase a line or two as you read if you feel it may be a little too much for them to handle before bedtime.Was this review helpful?

You'll want to read them all!
I have enjoyed all the Cooper Kids Series even though I am an adult. The other books Frank Peretti puts out are too creepy for me- like The Oath, but the Cooper Kids are just my speed. Interesting enough to grab you and hold your attention, but not too full of suspense as to make your blood pressure go up as you read! :-) A nice-size book you can finish in a day.Was this review helpful?

Exciting and suspenseful, you won't want to put it down!
I am currently on the last chapter. I have been reading this to my kids (11 and 6) at night before they go to bed. At the end of each chapter they always beg me to read a little more. This book really grabs and keeps your attention. Sometimes I am tempted to read ahead without the children because it has piqued my curiosity so!Was this review helpful?
