No book about the Maya would be complete without mentioning the flora and fauna of the jungle. From scorpions and a pet coatimundi to the howler monkeys and fer-de-lance snakes, the animals of the forest surrounded the archaeologists every day. Fighting the jungle plants is a major battle-the site is literally hidden in vegetation, much of which has destroyed the Maya buildings. Although the author's visits with Moises may be a little over children's heads, the rest of the text is broken into small pieces and engages the reader in the adventure that is archaeology.

The author came to my school and gave a book talk, and this book looked exciting so I bought it. It was what most books aren't: Educational AND exciting. That's what made it very enjoyable. The Mystery of the Maya: the Lost City of Palenque doesn't just tell you facts, the author is on an adventure and writes it sort of as if he is writing a journal along the way. It makes you feel like you're there. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who's hungry for fun!

I homeschool my 11 year old son. He chose to do a project on the Maya and came across this book at the library. What a great book! The pictures are beautiful and the style of writing is very friendly.
You can tell that Peter loves his job of researching and writing. I highly recommend this book. I know that I am heading out to find more written by Peter!
Blessings,
