Review by Booklist Reviews

Determined to rescue their kidnapped mother and find their missing father, the four Kidd siblings escape from their New York boarding school and travel to Africa. Mysterious clues, an encrypted message, and treasure maps send the intrepid kids traveling across the continent as they attempt to throw their cartoonlike enemies off the trail before homing in on their secret destination. Bick Kidd narrates the story, while his twin sister, Beck, contributes the many childlike illustrations. The second volume in the accessible Treasure Hunters series offers the same likable heroes, high-octane adventures, and pun-rich humor as the first. Literary popcorn and fun for young readers.

Review by Publisher Summary 3

With their parents in trouble once again, the Kidds must traverse the Australian Outback, recover a pair of stolen gems, and defeat treasure-hunting pirates to save them!

The Kidd family is on their way to Australia to find Lasseter's Gold when they are challenged by fellow treasure hunter Charlotte Badger, who challenges them to a race to the gold! But when the Kidds pull into port in Australia, their parents are suddenly arrested -- they've been framed! It turns out Charlotte Badger is a pirate, and she's planted a priceless stolen black opal on the Kidds' ship, The Lost!

Now Bick, Beck, Storm, and Tommy have seven days to traverse the Australian Outback, find Charlotte Badger and her pirate cronies, and bring back the evidence that will prove their parents innocent. If they fail, their parents will be found guilty and thrown in prison . . . forever!
