Editorial Reviews

YOUR KIDS ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS BOOK! It's a book kids read without realizing that they are reading! Adventure, plot shifts across the globe, kid-empowerment, and big issues in a breezy, 'kid brain voice' style. "Righty Tighty Lefty Loosey!" My son was completely engrossed, especially with the maps, working out where we live in relation to Argentina, Spain, Bangladesh and places in between. I especially liked that the book dealt with big global problems like trafficking, and idea theft in ways that engaged but didn't scare my son. The 'cool' kids in the book have and conquer fears, while knowing things like the tune to the Argentine national anthem. Priceless is a kid-captivating and a door-opening book. For parents, it reminded me a little of the Grand Budapest Hotel, it can be taken in on many levels, from some great laughs - "he had traveled so much his jet lag had almost lapped him and canceled itself out" - to enduring questions of good and evil.
