Description

Jupe, Pete and Bob are the Three Investigators - a team dedicated to cracking the mysteries no-one else can solve. An eccentric Englishman, John Silver, has buried a priceless art treasure and the only clues to its hiding place lie with seven parrots - who don't want to talk.

Reviewed on 29th August 2012

The second adventure for the Three Investigators sees them take up the hunt for a missing parrot. Some more of the regular elements are introduced and the plot is a classic mystery.

The characters seem surprisingly modern for an old story and Jupiter seems to have been toned down a little since the first book. The guest characters are also memorable and well developed rather than the shallow stereotypes in many children's books.

A great story from a great series that surprises me slightly by its absence from today's bookshelves.
