”The well-plotted story with spot-on kid dialogue will have readers alternately laughing and puzzling out the mystery ... This mystery soars while the feathers and fun fly.”
"The story, enhanced by the illustrations of Carl DiRocco, causes a bit of a dilemma. On one hand, readers won’t want to set the book down. On the other hand, the story will have them itching to get outdoors to paddle across a lake or go wildlife watching."
Bangor Daily News
"Wight and illustrator Carl DiRocco have created a fun, exciting mystery that smartly blends suspense with Native American lore and fascinating natural history . . . plot twists, secret identities and the boys’ fast thinking will keep readers, young and older, entertained to the last page. Cooper and Packrat are best pals, bright, brave and honest, setting good examples for wildlife stewardship and for doing what’s right, no matter what."
Bill Bushnell, Central Maine Newspapers
"An adventurous story with fascinating eagle facts. This book is perfect for young readers who love adventure, mystery, and nature. I already look forward to the next installment. I hope there’s a next book!"
