Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Shirley Link loves pirates. Well, she loves the idea of them. She wouldn’t like them if they were running up the street stealing bikes, but digging for treasure and swashbuckling adventure are on the top of her to-do list. So when a clue pops up that there’s a hidden pirate treasure under her hometown, Shirley gets to work.
In Shirley Link & The Treasure Chest, the third volume in the critically-acclaimed Middle-Grade Mystery series, our heroine takes on her toughest challenge yet. But this time the stakes are bigger than ever. If she fails to find the treasure, or if it ends up being a hoax, then Shirley’s elderly neighbor, Mrs. Smiley, will lose her home to the bank.
More Shirley, Dad, Wiley and Marie than ever before. That’s right. Even Mr. Link gets to join in the adventure!
If your kids enjoy Middle-Grade writers like Kate McMullan (Dragon Slayers’ Academy) or Mary Pope Osborne (Magic Treehouse), they’ll love Ben Zackheim’s Shirley Link mystery series for kids 9-12.
Zackheim spent 15 years producing successful online games for Viacom, Sony and AOL, entertaining tens of millions of people who would probably rather be doing something else. So, how did he end up writing books for kids?
Well, he gave up the New York corporate life for a writerly one in the Forbidden Forest at 42.5098° N, 72.6995° W.
