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!

    Yeah, I'll miss him. He's a pretty cool guy, y'know? He's a great debater and is most likely going to be a politician when he is older. (:

    i will miss alpha in a way. I've only debated him a couple times and he is good at it. i will miss the way he had the patience to type out paragraphs explaining the arguments (something that i just dont have). he beat me at debating a while back but he recently commented on my post so hopefully we can have another before he leaves. its ashame that the vegan debate didn't continue though.
