When the kids try to find out who the robbers are, they zoom in on 2 suspects hiding behind a lawn care business. As they try to find clues to tie the suspects to the robberies, they get in trouble themselves and rely on their friend to get them help.
The story includes pictures that take you on a vacation separately from the actual storyline. The adults play a huge role in the story as well. It's a fast and short read that tackles the subject of some dark characters that parents could use as a good discussion topic book as well.
A lot of the narration is done by a Seagull and between the kids finding the the answers getting in trouble themselves we get some thoughts from the seagull and his opinions of the world around him and the kids adventures.
With an interesting twist of a seagull telling the story, Cousins and Robbers is an adventure story for younger/middle grade readers.
