The Lost Expedition (Poptropica) by Mitch Krpata, Kory Merritt

Oliver, Mya and Jorge are off on another adventure.  They have the map that will take them anyplace they want to go and have managed to get a small boat.  The problem is that they aren't sure where to go.  They also have to worry about Octavian who wants the map.  And all those odd people with that odd tattoo that try to capture them...

Amulet Books sent me a copy of graphic novel to read for review (thank you).  It is being published today and you can grab a copy now.

This is an interesting series.  The three main characters seem to handle any crisis and stay alive even if they don't do it by planning.  It all looks accidental.  But it works, so who cares?

They don't necessarily want to go straight home, so they visit different places.  Somehow it's just not safe anywhere.  All Jorge wants to do is eat, so he picks a market that has lots of food.  They decide they need a bigger boat.  They end up in the Artic with a polar bear for company.  When they escape him, they find the boat alright.  It's frozen in the ice and the sailors aren't friendly.  One has that tattoo they fear, too, but they don't find that out until it's too late.

There's plenty of action, near misses, and they're in custody again.  I wonder how long it will take them to get away this time?
