I’m always looking for books to inspire people to travel. Well, a buddy of mine, Steve Bramucci, has just written one for kids eight to 12. I’ll have to wait a while before I give it to my boy Jack to read, but if you have any loved ones in that age range, check out “The Danger Gang & The Pirates of Borneo.” The 38 reviews on Amazon are all five stars, and the description reads like this:
“Ronald Zupan is a daring master adventurer! But he actually hasn’t experienced any grand adventures . . . YET! When his world-traveling parents are kidnapped on his twelfth birthday, Ronald seizes the chance to prove himself with a dazzling, danger-defying rescue operation.
“Teaming up with his trusty butler Jeeves, his quick-witted fencing nemesis Julianne Sato, and his pet cobra Carter, Ronald sets course for the jungle of Borneo where his parents were last sighted. If they can crash-land a plane and outrun a hungry snow leopard, surely they can find the secret lair of Zeetan Z, the world’s most ruthless pirate! But as their adventure becomes more and more dangerous, can Ronald and his companions muster enough courage to see this adventure through?”
