    A great story for boys, lots of twists and turns

    Ms McKenzie's has an excellent feel for 11/12 year-old boys. The Sign of the Green Dragon takes Sam and his best friends, Joey and Roger, on an adventure and mystery. There's the treasure map, he and his friends find, plus skeletons, Chinese boxes and Chinese dragons. There's a labyrinthine gold mine that an old Chinese man and his nephew live in. There are chase scenes and forged paintings. But the real question is, will Sam, who recently lost his parents and is living with a grumpy uncle, be around to play the district championship baseball game, or will his uncle send him to a boarding school? Running away to solve the mystery of the map sure isn't going to help win points with his uncle, but what's a boy to do when there's the possibility of finding treasure!? A good read with lots of wonderful twists and turns.

    A Rollicking Middle Grade Tale

    Another rollicking middle grade treasure of a tale from author, C. Lee McKenzie! If you have a boy (or girl) who loves a good mystery adventure, this is the book for them. The plot has more twists than a dragon’s tail, and the characters are both funny and enduring, especially Sam. He never gives up going after his dream, but at the same time, he is a true friend to his buddies. And the way the dragons fit it? Well, I won’t spoil it for you, but trust me – very clever and satisfying. One of my favorite things about this book is the way the author wove in facts about the history of the early days of California, and the impact of the Chinese immigrants to the region. I love seeing more diversity in children’s literature. Thanks to authors like C. Lee McKenzie, readers are now getting a wider and truer range of the vital “windows and mirrors.” SIGN OF THE GREEN DRAGON is a delightful adventure for readers who enjoy a well-crafted mystery with a touch of fantasy and a trio of plucky heroes. Highly recommended. (I was provided with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.)

    A good adventure book

    Sign of the Green Dragon Sam is an orphan. He is sent to live with his uncle for six months, but his uncle decides he would be better off in a boarding school instead. Worried he will miss the big game at his school, Sam and his friends hatch a plan. They will hide out in a cave until the game. While exploring, they discover a secret map and go in search of treasure. This was a good story with some great characters. I think kids would enjoy this book very much and despite being a male cast, I think girls would like it too. I would recommend it.

    Childhood Adventure

    A fun read. It reminds me of books like Hardy Boys, only up-to-date and relevant to today's young audience. Three friends head off on an adventure. They need to find treasure to keep their orphaned friend in their fold. Well written and fast-paced, this is a great little story.
