The Treasures of Weatherby Book Review

The Treasures of Weatherby Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Feb 01, 2007
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

When a book is loathed by Lemony Snicket, you know its got to be worth checking out. Kidzworld is taking a look at The Treasures of Weatherby by Zilpha Keatley Snyder to see if this is a mystery worth solving.

Author: Zilpha Keatly Snyder

With a note on the front saying it's "loathed by Lemony Snicket", The Treasures of Weatherby holds a lot of promise. Can it live up to the Lemony Snicket endorsement (or rather, the anti-endorsement)? We'll find out!

Moody Mansion

Harleigh J. Weatherby IV, is a tiny 12 year-old boy who was bullied at school before retreating to be home schooled at his family's rambling old mansion. Harleigh is in poor health after a series of heart-surgeries, and only the size of a six year-old, but he is determined to become as strong and powerful as his ancestors who built the Weatherby Mansion.

There's No Place Like Home

There are no bullies to hide from at Harleigh's family estate but there's also no one to play with. Save for the cook, his grumpy old aunt, his rarely present father, and his uncle/tutor, Harleigh doesn't really see anyone else at all. Instead, he spends his free time wandering around the grounds of the creepy old mansion all by himself. That is, until one day a young girl named Allegra literally flies into his life.


Treasure Your Time Together

Allegra is a mysterious girl with equally mysterious notions about the Weatherby Mansion. When she sneaks inside (against Harleigh's orders), she discovers that someone is trying to find a secret treasure from within the house and steal it! Harleigh and Allegra set out to save the secret treasure, but will they be too late?


The Bottom Line

The Treasure of Weatherby is a page-turning adventure that will have you reading under the sheets with a flashlight until long after bedtime. Whether you're a fan of mystery, action, adventure or stories of sweet and unlikely friendship, The Treasure of Weatherby's has something for you. The irony is that Lemony Snicket says he loathed this story, but if you loved A Series of Unfortunate Events, you'll totally be down with The Treasures of Weatherby. It's frighteningly good fun!


The Treasure of Weatherby Rating:5

    Dear Diary,  (2-20-17) So today was crazy after arguing with the fact that i should write this in a real diary but then remembering that my handwriting is terrible.     Okay look, just call me crazy but I saved the new girl in our class. I hate new girls in school. I was one which means I hate myself a couple years ago. That's..actually surprisingly accurate. Not that I'm a bully or anything whatsoever, but she always is automaticlly popular declared by the populist of popular in out class, Victoria. Or Tori for a brief yet still so disgusting I can smell her name from here period. Okay, I think we might be becoming friends after I saved her. You might be thinking, Audrey, just tell us how you saved her! Shut up, okay! I'm getting to that. Anyways, as Victoria is officially awesome, (inflicted by the awesomeness)  she hangs out with another girl which makes Alexei all mad and the whole thing blows up until I'm in the middle. (face palm) And I did some magic talk and problem solved. NOT! Now she says that I'm her friend and I do something crazy for her. She likes a boy in our class, Eddie. He likes Alexei, Alexei likes him. And you guess what i did. MAGIC! Anyways, now she owes me two favors. And that'll be getting me out of my delehma  right now by giving me stomach medicine. Or nose medicine. Either sounds heavenly.

    In my opinion, cutting is not a cry for attention. The person's emotional pain creates some kind of need to feel physical pain, even if this person is not aware of that while doing it. However, on the last couple of years, cutting started to get popular, making some people think that if they cut themselves they will get more attention, which, also in my opinion, is an act of "desperation" and an actual need for attention or friendly advises .   :nerd  :)
