REVIEWS FOR EDISON'S GOLD
“Part treasure hunt, part mystery and part quest-adventure, this is all fun. This completely self-contained and satisfying story leaves room for sequels.” - Kirkus Reviews

“Watson’s novel is a fun ride, filled with kidnappings, close friendships, and inventions. The open-ended finale indicates that a sequel can be anticipated.” - Publishers Weekly

”This action packed novel will fit the bill for readers craving adventure stories in which clever kids take chances and triumph in the end.” - Booklist
