When the ancient Jaguar Cup disappears, three kids race through the rain forest to reclaim it!

Jose, Anna, and Henry are junior members of the secret Silver Jaguar Society, sworn to protect the world's most important artifacts. When they discover that the society's treasured Jaguar Cup has been replaced with a counterfeit, the trio and their families rush to the rain forests of Costa Rica in search of the real chalice. But when the trail runs dry, new mysteries emerge: Who can they trust? Is there a traitor in their midst? With danger at every turn, it will take courage, teamwork, and a little help from the creatures of the rain forest to keep the cup from falling into the wrong hands.

Read an Excerpt

From HIDE AND SEEKThe walls were lined with crystal formations that glowed and reflected in the shallow lake that covered the cave floor. Water cascaded down the glittering crystal columns in perfectly smooth sheets. The ceiling was a huge sand-colored dome mottled with black and brown."Wait," Henry said, a wary edge in his voice. "Am I dizzy, or is that ceiling moving?"Sofia took a step farther into the room, and a cloud of bats exploded into motion from the wall nearby, their wings whooshing and fluttering. Henry squeezed both hands into fists at his sides, and Jose could practically see the thought bubble bursting out of his head. I will not run away. I will not run away.Sofia paused and held a finger to her lips, then clicked off the flashlight. "Did you hear that?" she whispered.Jose listened. Over the rush of the bats' wings and the squeaks of their echolocation searching for one another in the dark, were splashing footsteps, coming from the opposite side of the cathedral.
