Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Luis, Hayley B & Speedup are 3 children who live in Sandy Feet, Florida. The waitress at the local diner tells them about the legend of Jean Lafitte. He was a pirate in the 19th century who pirated the waters of The Gulf of Mexico. He is supposed to have buried tons of gold along the Gulf of Mexico. Enough to build a bridge across the Mississippi. The children decide that their beach is as good a place as any to have buried treasure and they decide to go and start digging. Meanwhile two stranges, Yuke and Bug Luck, have just come in on the train. Trouble follows them no matter what they do or where they go and it seems that Luis, Hayley B & Speedup are right in the middle of it too. Will they find treasure or will they destroy the town looking for it. A fun early chapter book. I like the ending where the characters talk about researching the real pirates. Adds a little something to the book for children who want to find out more about the facts behind the legend.
