In The Orient: Reviews from the Parents
5.0 out of 5 stars! Great and Vivid Details
In the eighth book Art Collins takes us to Hong Kong and introduces a gallery of friendly new characters as well as new enemies. In this amazing eighth installment of the Archibald and Jockabeb series you will be stunned and fascinated by the vivid details he once again manages to create.”
We just finished reading the eighth book earlier this week, and the ninth book this morning. I have visited both Hong Kong and Sydney, and now my kids want me to take them to both places. I must admit we are sorry the series is over. My kids really enjoyed the storylines, and they learned a lot about the places in the world that Archibald and Jockabeb visited. The beautiful illustrations also really helped to bring the characters and the stories alive. Kudos to the author and artist.
The author, Art Collins, sets up the story and then tosses the readers and the brothers into a crazy world. It was so easy to get caught up in the story and even though I’m an adult, I had a hard time putting this book down. I’ve started reading it to my children at night and they have fallen in love with this book. They can’t wait for the next night to hear what happens next.
