Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—In this follow-up to Capture the Flag (Scholastic, 2012), Anna, Henry, and José reconnect in Washington, DC, a few months after having tracked down the thieves of a precious historical artifact. As the three preteens are honored for their work, their adult relatives, who are members of the Silver Jaguar Society, learn that the golden Jaguar Cup has been stolen. All three families board the next flight for Costa Rica, where the adults plan to hunt down the thief while Anna, Henry, and José remain in the care of their friend at his "rain forest eco-lodge." Not content to sit idly by, the kids track down any clues that they can find, and they end up having wild and breathtaking adventures. While Capture the Flag focused on Anna, this installment follows José as he deals with feeling left out and tries to solve the mystery on his own. Although the story line is complex and includes many characters, it is easy to follow, and readers will find themselves caught up in the action, especially in a gripping chase scene toward the end. Messner does an admirable job of taking her readers to the rain forest, and she provides a few helpful photos and an author's note at the end of the book. Hide and Seek is a great read for students who enjoy mysteries and action-packed adventures.—Sarah Reid, Broome County Public Library, Binghamton, NY

Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
As junior members of the secret Silver Jaguar Society, Jose, Anna, and Henry swear to protect the world's most important artifacts. When they go to Washington, D.C. and gaze upon the Jaguar Cup, with a powerful jaguar on one side and the dagger-toothed head of a serpent on the other, they shiver with excitement—until their parents discover that the vessel is a counterfeit. The families rush to the rain forests of Costa Rica in search of the real thing, and the trio joins forces with Sophia. New mysteries emerge: Adults are not the only one with secrets. Who can they trust? Is there a traitor in their midst? With spiders, bats, and venomous snakes at every turn, it will take every ounce of bravery they have for the friends to recover the cup before it falls into the wrong hands. But when it does, readers should look behind them! This page-turning mystery has it all: adventure, facts, and edge-of-the-seat excitement. Readers would do well to read more of this award-winning author's works. Reviewer: Bonita Herold
Kirkus Reviews
Three young members of the Silver Jaguar Society team up with a Costa Rican 10-year-old to find the stolen Jaguar Cup, a pre-Columbian gold artifact hidden at a rain-forest ecolodge. Anna, José and Henry, fresh from their rescue of the Star-Spangled Banner, described in Capture the Flag (2012), are sent to wait at the lodge Sofia's father runs not too far from the Costa Rican capital, San José, while the adults responsible for them plan to begin their search for the priceless object. But the thief and his even more dangerous pursuer are staying at this same out-of-the-way sanctuary. This fast-paced mystery makes good use of the rain-forest setting as the young people encounter venomous snakes, biting ants and endangered great green macaws. A hanging, swaying bridge and a long zip line play important parts in suspenseful chase scenes. While the episode resolves satisfactorily, the ringleader of a gang of international art thieves, who now knows and hates them personally, has escaped. There's plenty of room for a third book in this gripping series. Readers who care to know more about characters may want to start with the first title; this one is all plot and setting, a gratifying page-turner. Aptly titled, this energetic treasure hunt is sure to find an enthusiastic audience. (Mystery. 8-12)

    REVIEW: This is the first book I have read by this particular author. It is aimed at upper elementary. It is a well-written book and does keep your attention from the get go.

    A fast-paced mystery that takes you into the rain forest of Costa Rica. While the book is fiction, it has a lot of interesting facts about the animal life of the rain forest. It’s almost like a “fun” textbook and would be a good book for any teacher to read to their class. I like that the author is a former school teacher and has incorporated such interesting facts into her story. I highly recommend this book. (reviewed by P.Howard)
