"Hide and Seek" by Kate Messner

About the book: José, Anna, and Henry are junior members of the secret Silver Jaguar Society, sworn to protect the world's most important artifacts. When they discover that the society's treasured Jaguar Cup has been replaced with a counterfeit, the trio and their families rush to the rain forests of Costa Rica in search of the real chalice. But when the trail runs dry, new mysteries emerge: Who can they trust? Is there a traitor in their midst? With danger at every turn, it will take more than they realize for José and his friends to recover the cup before it falls into the wrong hands. (inside book cover)

REVIEW:  This is the first book I have read by this particular author.  It is aimed at upper elementary.  It is a well-written book and does keep your attention from the get go. 
A fast-paced mystery that takes you into the rain forest of Costa Rica.  While the book is fiction, it has a lot of interesting facts about the animal life of the rain forest.  It’s almost like a “fun” textbook and would be a good book for any teacher to read to their class.  I like that the author is a former school teacher and has incorporated such interesting facts into her story.  I highly recommend this book. (reviewed by P.Howard)
