Friday Memes: The Danger Gang and the Pirates of Borneo! by Stephen Bramucci

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Beginning:
Hello Friend,

Are you ready for a dazzling tale of grand adventure? A tale of swordfights and disguises? Of pirates and stolen relics?
Friday 56:
"Elexander," I began, "how long has this spectacular research station been here?"

The mechanic grabbed the base of the lightbulb and angled it so it cast a warm glow on the map.
This week I am reading The Danger Gang and the Pirates of Borneo! by Stephen Bramucci, illustrated by Arree Chung. I got this ARC from Bloomsbury. Here is the description from Amazon:
Ronald Zupan is a daring master adventurer! But he actually hasn't experienced any grand adventures . . . YET! When his world-traveling parents are kidnapped on his twelfth birthday, Ronald seizes the chance to prove himself with a dazzling, danger-defying rescue operation.

Teaming up with his trusty butler Jeeves, his quick-witted fencing nemesis Julianne Sato, and his pet cobra Carter, Ronald sets course for the jungle of Borneo where his parents were last sighted. If they can crash-land a plane and outrun a hungry snow leopard, surely they can find the secret lair of Zeetan Z, the world's most ruthless pirate! But as their adventure becomes more and more dangerous, can Ronald and his companions muster enough courage to see this adventure through?
