The Emerald Cityby Stephen S. Keeney
Then, the city of Seattle is engulfed by horrific weather, caused by a maladjusted Romanian count seeking
Thirteen-year-old Spencer Herold and his friends Maddy, Babu and Duber Dave are always looking for adventure. They even have a club for it: the Lake Union Adventurers. For the most part, though, their adventures are fairly tame. That's about to change.
Then, the city of Seattle is engulfed by horrific weather, caused by a maladjusted Romanian count seeking revenge. Using a handwritten book given to his late grandfather during World War II, Spencer and the Lake Union Adventurers begin to unravel mysteries from the past, and a long history of trickery, betrayal and deceit is revealed.
With time running out and the city on the brink of destruction, Spencer and his friends set out to foil the evildoer's plans. As they battle natural disasters and unscrupulous villains, Spencer realizes that his own family is the madman's target.

My 10 year old grandson and I enjoyed this book by Stephen Keeney. The characters were fun to read about and share in their amazing adventures. It takes place in the Northwest and many places Danny had read about in school. Stephen made them all come alive and now we are talking about taking a trip up there. We immediately read his second book as well, and look forward to more books in the future.
stephen if you are readin this im one ofthe kids you viseted at a school and gave us each a free copy. I read it the day i got it it is on of the best books i ever read ad i,ve read alot of books (about 2000!)i hopeyou write a third one becouse they,really good.
I hope Stephen Keeney continues to write more Spencer adventures. I have grandchilren from 2 on up to 10 years and enjoy sharing his stories with them. Stephen deals with real life situations thru Spencer and his family and friends. He spins his tales thru travels (local and afar), different ethnic foods, history, problem solving, family (spanning over several generations) and friends from different backgrounds. I must say, Stephen brought the kid in me out through memories which I could then relate to my grandchildren. I look forward to more stories and wonder where they will take place next and what new things we will discover.
