"This is the 1st novel of the new Hidden Mickey Adventures series. The Brentwood family has special ties to Disneyland. The mother, Kimberly, used to work there, and the father, Lance, still does. Their trio of teen and pre-teen boys, Peter, Michael and Andrew, know their way around the park like it's their hometown. On a typical family visit to the park, Michael discovers the first clue in a treasure hunt that Walt Disney himself had planted at the park decades before. The kids don't know that their parents found similar clues years ago and are following the kids' progress in a magical technological control room hidden in their own house. Michael starts following the clues, but his older brother, Peter, finishes the quest. Rodrigue follows up her earlier multi-book adult series about the older Brentwoods with this new series, aimed at readers as young as 9. The book is very family friendly, reaching all readers with a writing style that will likely satisfy middle-grade readers as well as adults. The book's Disney detail is so detailed that readers will be able map the characters' every move. This Hidden Mickey Adventure is chock full of adventure, where the children participate in a treasure hunt that puts their very lives in danger. The suspense involves a dangerous villain and Wolf, the time traveling and powerful character that is looking after them, ready to swoop in should anything happen. The Hidden Mickey hunters will likely return in a sequel, as this book ends on a cliffhanger. Disneyland is the great backdrop for this action packed novel!."
