The long missing grandparents of 11-year-old Archer Helmsley are finally coming home – and Archer cannot wait! He’s heard stories of their legendary adventures, but he’s never actually met them. However, before they can even arrive, unsavory rumors start swirling around town, rumors that paint Archer’s grandparents as frauds, that insist they’ve made up the whole story of being trapped on an iceberg. Archer is determined to prove these rumors untrue and, with the help of his best friends, sets out on an adventure of his own to rescue his grandparents’ reputation. But as he gets closer to the truth, he learns that there might be more to his grandparents’ story than he realized – that something nefarious may be afoot.
Your young explorers will be thrilled by Archer’s second adventure that brims with the spirit of exploration and the power of friendship. Illustrated with color plates by the author.
