Overview

Yaakov Peretz is out to catch a pirate.

One quiet morning, the Peretz children discover a pirates' treasure map in their family's robot. It leads them into the Mojave Desert, where they soon unearth a mysterious treasure chest stolen from a Santa Barbara billionaire named Aharon Sapir.

Yaakov and family manage to return the treasure and to outwit the pirates who stole it, but soon learn of a greater danger to the Sapir family fortune. On the Tunisian island of Djerba rests the Sapirs' most sacred heirloom: the world's oldest Torah scroll, an artifact worth a fortune.

Another pirate is after the ancient scroll, and the Peretzes' trusted robot dealer may be involved. Yaakov and family journey to the other side of the globe to track down a ruthless scoundrel with criminal intent. To succeed, Yaakov must decide between saving his prized robot, built with his very hands, and protecting a greater good.

"The story, itself, moves along at a cracking pace and will be easy to read for any middle grade reader. It is a marvellous story that all children will find entertaining and enjoyable." --Susan Day, Author/Illustrator of Astro's Adventures

Meet the Author

Nathaniel Wyckoff was born and raised in the beautiful San Fernando Valley of southern California. From an early age, he was interested in reading, writing and listening to stories.

Though he works in a technical field, he counts storytelling among his favorite activities. Nathaniel's storytelling career took flight with the births of his children. His children enjoy all kinds of stories, but most of Nathaniel's stories for them are of the fantasy and adventure variety. Nathaniel's first novel, Yaakov the Pirate Hunter, was inspired by his son's request for a story about robots. It combines elements of science, adventure, and Nathaniel's beloved Jewish tradition.

In addition to writing, the author also enjoys studying his Jewish traditions, reading, playing the accordion and the piano for his family, playing games and sports with his children, and taking his family on hiking trips, camping trips and other adventures.
