Emily and Jackson are at it again!  This time with the same Aunt Hilda (as everyone thinks). They overcome lots of obstacles, including Emily’s Uncle Victor, who tries to steal Emily’s $10 million fortune many times. The ‘Catchum Child Catching Services’ are out for Jackson to take West.  Many times they have to stop what they’re doing and hide. 


I’m so glad that Phyllis Reynolds Naylor wrote this book along with Emily’s Fortune because it was such an exciting adventure that kept my nerves up!  I love how she leaves the reader hanging at the end of every chapter.  If I could be any character in that book, I would choose Emily because she gets trapped many times with her uncle but always seems to end up safe with Aunt Hilda.  I was very surprised and a little worried for Emily and Jackson when the widow woman turned into someone unexpected! 


My favorite part of the book was when Emily and Jackson were on the boat and had to keep running around and hiding from Emily’s uncle.  What will happen next with Emily and Jackson?
