WHEN 8-YEAR-OLD CARK REIMER AND HIS 6-YEAR-OLD SISTER CARLA knock on the front door of their new neighbor’s house, hoping that they have children they can play with, they get something way better – when the door is opened by a man wearing the scariest, coolest monster mask! It turns out their neighbor, Mr. Neewollah (spell it backwards…), creates monsters for a movie studio, and when he invites Cark, Carla, and their parents to join him for a movie shoot on the tropical island of Tahka Paka, how can they resist?
In his latest book, “The Secret Treasure of Tahka Paka,” Carl Reiner continues the tradition he established in “Tell Me A Scary Story… But Not Too Scary!” of taking the reader on a roller coaster ride of twists, turns, scary surprises and lots of fun. From the moment the Reimer family arrives on Tahka Paka, they find that the magical island holds many secrets, including hidden caves, tunnels, crypts, ancient curses, pirates and a secret treasure that will benefit all of us.
Along the way, Cark and Carla encounter creatures such as creepy, disgusting Vomitton and Three-Headed Hydra, a colorful talking bird/woman, the slithery Snake family, and an exciting and unexpected ending -- as Carla sums it up, “A pretty scary but wonderful magical adventure.”
In “The Secret Treasure of Tahka Paka,” Carl has once again teamed up with award-winning illustrator James Bennett, who so beautifully illustrated “Tell Me A Scary Story” and once again captures all the thrills and chills, along with the wackily unique characters that come to life in Carl’s wondrous tale. (And, if you look closely, you may even recognize some of those characters…)
