This was a purchase for my children as I like them to keep reading and learning to further their education. They enjoyed it.

This was a really great book. I ordered it for my sister and she loved it! (she's in 5th grade). I'd recommend this book to any 4th or 5th grader.
The Return of Vesper Holly
June 20, 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Lloyd Alexander's Vesper Holly series is intended to be a light and frothy mixture of far-ranging, fantastic serial-like adventures in the vein of the Indiana Jones films or the classic Carl Barks Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge comic tales. The El Dorado Adventure starts out slow and picks up speed as Vesper and her ward Brinny tackle volcanoes, an evil villain and sexist thinking. I recommend this book for any teen, but especially those smart enough to enjoy the subtleties of Professor Garrett's narrative. I'm looking forward to reading the remaining Vesper Holly adventures.

Vesper and her guardian Brinnie head to the Central American country of El Dorado in response to a mysterious telegram. In El Dorado, they encounter earthquakes, volcanoes, Gatling guns, and their old nemesis Desmond Helvitius. Will Vesper and Brinnie be able to escape with their lives? Will they ever see Philadelphia again?
fast-paced, humorous adventure

We bought this just prior to our trip to South America and had a lot of fun reading it there. My 10 year old son tends to avoid books with heroines, but he deeply admired Vesper Holly's reliance on intelligence and quick action to get out of tough situations. We fully enjoyed the fast-paced, nonstop adventure leavened with a hearty dose of humor. He is anxious to read all the Vesper Holly books now.
