Up North Adventure Series – Book Review
Are you looking for an adventure series that’s full of wholesome action, excitement and fun and geared towards readers ages 9 through 12? If so, look no further than the Up North Adventure Series by G. M. Moore – a trio of books about a lonely city boy who finds friendship and adventure during his summers in Wisconsin!
These stories focus on Corbett Griffith III – a young boy who feels abandoned by his career-oriented parents in the midst of their divorce. He looks forward to spending his summers playing video games, working on his computer, and taking archeology classes at the local museum – but all of that changes when his parents decide to send him to his Uncle’s fishing resort so he can enjoy the great outdoors!
Corbett isn’t thrilled about this turn of events and anticipates a summer full of misery. But soon, he makes friends and his life changes in ways he could not have imagined in each of these stories!
Muskie Attack is the first book in the Up North Adventure Series. In this book, we meet Corbett begins to expand his horizons – make new friends – and discover the skills and confidence he needs to as he sets out on a quest to capture his father’s attention – and earn his father’s respect – by catching a ferocious, pre-historic beast!
Ancient Elk Hunt is the second book in the Up North Adventure Series. In this book, Corbett (nicknamed Griffy by his friends) has the chance to put his archeological skills to the test as he battles wits with a desperate archeologist in an effort to help a new friend!
Snakehead Invasion is the third book in the Up North Adventure Series. In this book, Corbett is looking forward to returning to Whispering Pines Lodge and spending the summer with his friends – but something is different. Shortly after his arrival, a vicious snakehead fish is caught in the waters of Lost Land Lake. Will this invasive species ruin the lake and the livelihood of his uncle and the town? Or, will Corbett and his friends be able to unravel the mystery and save the day?
As you read, you’ll find that each book in this award-winning series seems to be better than the last. You’ll also appreciate how each educational each book is, and how each story promotes the joy of an active lifestyle!
