Fresh off a Tibetan adventure in which they barely escaped alive, 11-year-old twins, Oliver and Celia Navel, find themselves in the indentured service of Sir Edmund Titheltorpe-Schmidt III during their summer vacation. If only they could spend their vacation in front of the television watching reality shows instead of being forced into searching Macchu Picchu for the Lost Library of Alexandria.
Oliver and Celia never wanted to be explorers. That is something they would rather leave up to their parents. All they want is to look forward to starting sixth grade. (Too bad sixth grade ends up a disaster.) After the twins are kicked out of school, they end up on their way to the ancient ruins in the Amazon on yet another unwanted adventure. The family is hired as consultants for the hit show, The Celebrity Adventurist, where the twins are teamed up with their favorite teen TV actor, Corey Brandt (or so it seems). When their Dad, Dr. Ogden Navel, and Sir Edmund are kidnapped by a group of cannibals, Oliver and Celia must use their reality TV survival skills to rescue them (and hopefully be rewarded with cable TV).
We Dine With Cannibals is filled with nail biting adventure and even funnier than the first book in the series. Definitely a humorous must read series with the promise of a third installment Atlantis adventure. Highly recommended. A series both boys and girls ages 8-12 will enjoy.
