From The Publisher: Readers will have tons of fun creating the codes right along with the characters in this interactive series. Cody, Quinn, Luke, and M.E. love playing around with codes.

My Review: I have a large extended family and we were all raised to be readers and have raised the next generation the same. This is a book that covers two of their likes, puzzles and codes and a great mystery. The authors writing brings the characters to life and keeps the reader involved with the code busting process and interpretation of the clues. The three I purchased this book loved it and talked their parents into buying the other books in the series for them. Chad, age 11, not willing to wait for his birthday spent his allowance on books 1 and 2. He is one of the hardest to find something he will enjoy reading. The stories moves quickly and the kids enjoy discussing the book between themselves and their friends. I found this book to be enjoyable to read to my overnight visitors and decided a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IPSGPXE/...

Penny Warner is again nominated for an Agatha Award for Case 3 in the Code Busters Club series, The Mystery of the Pirate’s Treasure. Once again, Berkely Cooperative Middle School is embarking on a fun field trip — this time to the Carmel Mission and the Mission Trail Nature Preserve. Cody, Quinn, Luke, and M. E. are on the case as the investigative team learns California history surrounding a pirate named Hippolyte de Bouchard who raided the mission in search of rumored riches. Turns out the treasure was so well hidden by missionaries that, not only did de Bouchard’s thirst for booty go unslaked, but the cache still remains uncovered! Sounds like a mystery for the Code Busters Club! First, I’m convinced that Berkely Cooperative Middle School has got to be the coolest school ever! While book one, The Secret of the Skeleton Man, had Cody and crew finding mystery just across the street, subsequent cases have taken the foursome to local California points of interest. Not only do the characters — and by extension, the readers — learn history and decode hidden messages, they get a chance to solve a mystery! It wouldn’t be a pirate story without a hidden treasure, so fittingly the school field trip assignment involves a treasure map of sorts. The Code Busters’ pride is at stake as they race to find the solution before the rest of the class beats them to it! Invisible ink and hidden messages play a notable part in the tale, and one cool element is seen when Quinn sends the Code Busters an invisible note via email. (He used white text which the recipient needs to change to black in order to reveal the concealed message!) In the back of the book, just behind the answer key, readers will be thrilled to find instructions for several different methods by which they can make their own invisible ink. Additional pleasures are to be had deciphering Morse code in order to learn pirate speak, picking up nautical phrases used by the mission’s docent, and learning the new codes the author has thrown into the mix: Orienteering code, Trail Signs code, Periodic Table code, and Phonetic alphabet. As always, Warner has packed the story full of puzzles and games. Admittedly, it seemed there were a smaller number in book three, although as a result, the storyline felt tighter and more focused. Whether this was due to my increasing skills with the puzzles or a lower level of difficulty, I can’t be sure. What I can say with certainty is that reading a Code Busters Club story remains just as engaging and enjoyable as ever! Verdict: 4 of 5 Hearts. A Mystery Series for Middle Grade Readers That Amazes and Engages. Shiver Me Timbers! With Case 3, The Mystery of the Pirate’s Treasure, Penny Warner has again made child’s play of problem solving. *Disclosure of Material Connection: I would like to thank Egmont USA for providing me a copy of this title.

    The 6th grade Code Busters—four assorted kids who love everything about every kind of code—go off with their class to Junipero Serra’s Carmel mission for an overnight field trip. While there, they learn of the only pirate associated with California, who attacked the mission and supposedly hid his treasure there. The Code Busters are determined to find the treasure, but they’re not the only ones. Many puzzles and codes are interspersed, with solutions at the back. This is a popcorn book for kids w The 6th grade Code Busters—four assorted kids who love everything about every kind of code—go off with their class to Junipero Serra’s Carmel mission for an overnight field trip. While there, they learn of the only pirate associated with California, who attacked the mission and supposedly hid his treasure there. The Code Busters are determined to find the treasure, but they’re not the only ones. Many puzzles and codes are interspersed, with solutions at the back. This is a popcorn book for kids who like codes and puzzles more than plot or character. The characters are interchangeable, the mystery simple and fairly obvious, and the “humor” sounds as if written by someone with no idea what humor is. (“Another nursery rhyme?” Luke asked, rolling his eyes. “What are we, kindergartners?” Cody laughed. But then, Luke always made her laugh.” I mean, I see why the hilarity of this jest would have Cody rolling on the floor in abject mirth, but strangely enough I don’t seem to share her levity. And this was the “funniest” joke in the book.) I also think it’s too young for the supposed target age group, even if the characters are 6th graders. What 6th graders of your acquaintance go to bed at 8:30 without complaining? Apparently the whole class does, in this book. I think this is aimed at a very narrow audience of code-loving kids, but they would be better off with the Winston Breen series (tons of puzzles), the Blue Balliett books (Chasing Vermeer), the Red Blazer Girls series (great characters, fun mysteries), or heck, Swallows and Amazons. They love codes and ciphers.

    Received ARC from Netgalley. This was an interesting book. It is book 3, but it seems you don’t need to read the other books to know what it is about. I couldn't find book 1 and 2, so I am happy to see I don’t need to read the other books. At the beginning it is clearly mentioned who is who, and there is also enough information in the beginning chapters.

Like for all solutions to the puzzles mentioned in this book, see page (insert number) or see chapter (insert chapter). The trip they had was really fun to read about. I really liked how they figured out the map and all the puzzles. And I really liked all the pirate facts and stories. It was really interesting to read about them, even though I knew most already. The mystery itself was good, I liked it. We got criminals, a real treasure and mystery. In overall this book was really fun to read, and a real recommendation to kids who like codes, puzzles and pirates!

    I read this to 4th grade classes at my school. They loved the idea of cracking codes to solve the mystery, and were completely intrigued with the story of pirates plundering the Carmel Mission and a treasure hunt. These classes will be studying the California Missions and the book was a perfect lead-in to this unit. Very clever and great mystery reads for middle grades.

    In the third book of the Code Busters Club series, Cody, Quinn, Luke and M.E. search for pirate treasure on a class trip to the Carmel Mission and Mission Trail Nature Preserve. While the main characters are in sixth grade the writing is extremely straightforward and would appeal more to younger readers who love mysteries and code breaking. Could easily be used to support Common Core.

    Pirates, a mystery, and all sorts of codes kids can solve themselves. What a fun book for inquisitive kids! I loved Encyclopedia Brown books as a child, and wish Penny Warner had already written these Code Busters books when I was that age.
