Under the Eagle’s Beak is an excellent juvenile adventure tale about two boys in search of a lost treasure, a missing father, time travel and encounters with pirates. Allow me to quote from the back cover:

"Billy Marshal and his friend Figgy Newton have grown up around treasure-hunters. Every summer, the search for the treasureof Pirate’s Pit begins again in Clark’s Cove. Not wishing to be outdone by tourists, Bill and Figgy are determined to be the first to find the treasure! So far, however, they’ve had no luck finding even one gold piece.

"But Bill and Figgy won’t give up - they’ve caught pirate fever! After discovering a mysterious letter that leads them to a time machine, Bill and Figgy are transported back to the 18th century where they learn the dangerous secrets of the Treasure of Pirate’s Pit! Can Bill and Figgy find the treasure and return to the future - or will they be stuck on a pirate’s ship forever?"

It is a well-written and well-edit story which I can highly recommend to juvenile readers. It is short, fast paced and full of excitement. You won’t be disappointed.
