Book Description

Feb. 22 2011 An Accidental Adventure (Book 1)
Eleven-year-old twins Oliver and Celia Navel live on the 4-1/2th floor of the Explorers Club with their father, Dr. Navel. Their mother, Dr. Navel, has been missing for years. So when an explorer shows up with a clue as to where his wife could be, Dr. Navel drags Oliver and Celia to Tibet to find her. Once there, the twins fall out of airplanes, encounter Yetis, travel through waterfalls, and end up in the Demon Fortress of the Warrior King where they-just possibly-might find their mother and save their father from the Poison Witches. Thing is, they would much rather be watching television. And if their trip doesn't work out as planned, the twins could end up as slaves to Sir Edmund Thitheltorpe III, an evil explorer with breath that smells like boiled carrots, who has it in for the whole Navel family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic story Feb. 17 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I've got to admit, many kids books are boring for the adult reading the story. The adventure of Oliver & Celia are so fun for both the kids and myself. Kids enjoyed the story, I enjoyed the story; the plot twists and sillyness are great (but not crude like so many kids' books). The adventures hint at the mythical and relate some historical as well as an added bonus.
Just a good entertaining read :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute, relatable book March 9 2011
By History Fan - Published on Amazon.com
My kids are couch potatoes who have to be dragged out to do stuff, so when I got this book they thought for sure I had gotten it ON PURPOSE TO ANNOY THEM. At least, my older daughter did. My son was excited to read it because he thought the dad in the book sounded a lot like his dad, then I read it because I could. My son also took the book to his class to share because he was so hopped up about it and I thought we might not ever see it again, but it came back eventually.

I will also say that my son, a 3rd grader, was a very reluctant reader prior to reading this book. He has the ability to read at higher grade levels, but always tried to get away with Pokemon comic books, until he read this book. This book has relatable characters and a funny story, and I think it made him realize that books are indeed pretty awesome. Now he's tackling Percy Jackson and Narnia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on the Yak Attack! Feb. 22 2011
By DSax - Published on Amazon.com
It's been a good two decades since I read a book geared towards kids (it's been a good decade since I was one), and here I was, within hours of picking up We Are Not Eaten by Yaks, lying in bed with a flashlight, my wife asleep next to me, as in love with reading as I was when I was a kid.

This book is just tremendous fun. The Navel twins are the perfect duo of sarcastic adventurers, thrust into danger's way in the mountains of Tibet, when they'd rather just be at home, nestled up with cable. C. Alexander London, who previously wrote as a pretty serious journalist (look it up) keeps the pages flowing, one after another, with enough action, insight, and humor to keep readers on their toes. Twists and turns abound, poison witches appear, yetis wreak havoc, all the while Oliver and Celia fight to stave off boredom with the hope of reality TV's sweet embrace.

If only the Navels had An Accidental Adventure book to read. Perhaps then they wouldn't crave cable.

Awesome fun. Pure and simple. I can't wait till the next one comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars My reluctant reader loved it! Aug. 2 2013

My 11 year old son loved this book. It was funny and full of action! The twin main characters loved to just sit and watch tv all day...so my son made an instant connection. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review by Paige S., a fifth grader in Mrs. Taylor's class March 18 2014
By Rhonda Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
The book An Accidental Adventure is a great book if you like Action, Crazy, Adventure, Exploring, or TV. If I had to rate this book between 1 and 10, I would give it an 11. This book has lost of exciting, jump out of your chair, surprises. Like the time Lama Norbru, a monk, turned out to be a grave robber who worked for Sir Edmond, or the time when their mom got them thrown out of an air plane in the middle of Tibet. But that’s normal for the Navel Twins, always full of silliness and Excitement till the last page of the book. But that’s not always good for the Navel Twins, they are the laziest kids there is, for them it sucks having a runaway mother and explorer as a dad. All they want to do is watch “celebrity adventurist”, “Agent Zero”, “Love at 30,000 Feet”, “Dancing with My Impersonator”, “Sunset High”, “Celebrity Whisk Warriors”, or even the Spanish channel “Amores Enchiladas” anything that involves the television and eating snack puff. This book is my favorite of all time and believe me I’m a very picky reader. I can tell you if you read this book it will make you fill with laughter and make you want to be there too. I hope you enjoy this one of a kind, fantastic, outstanding book!
