Description of this Book

TREASURE HUNTER, TOMB ROBBER, TROUBLEMAKER Jake Atlas and his family are searching for the fifth emerald tablet that will reveal the secret to the history of humankind. At China's Terracotta Army Museum, Jake retrieves a clue to a safe passage into a nearby tomb, where the tablet is believed to be hidden. But when a helicopter appears and blows up the tomb, the Atlases know they are being pursued by the People of the Snake. They must decode the rescued tablet and journey to the Crystal Mountain in Tibet to discover its store of ancient knowledge. But the mountain is guarded by a spirit, never to be entered. Not one to be deterred, Jake Atlas must overcome high altitudes, survive in a frozen landscape and drink far more yak butter tea than he'd ever imagined to discover the mountain's secrets. Another heart-thumping Jake Atlas adventure from an award-winning author, full of laughs and high-tech gadgets.

Author's Bio

Rob Lloyd Jones never wanted to be a writer when he grew up - he wanted to be Indiana Jones. So he studied Egyptology and archaeology and went on trips to faraway places. But all he found were interesting stories, so he decided to write them down. Jake Atlas and the Quest for the Crystal Mountain is Rob's fourth novel, though he has written more than thirty other books for children, including non-fiction and adaptations of such classics as Jekyll and Hyde. He lives in East Sussex with his wife and two young sons.
