Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-A trove of stories of lost or buried treasure, one for each state and four from Canada. Each selection includes a brief description of the loot (from Inca gold and buried mines to pirate booty and outlaw spoils) and its history as well as simple maps that indicate its general location. Helpful hints for treasure seekers stress the need to search for treasure legally and with permission. The book is packed full of the kinds of quirky details that middle graders love. The light and casual writing style is well suited to the topic and appealing to its audience, who will be more likely to browse the book than read it straight through.

Format: Paperback
I was glad to find this book because I haven't seen anything else like it. It's the kind of book that gets kids to read--even those who don't really like reading. I'm a retired school librarian and am giving this as a gift to my granddaughter along with an inexpensive metal detector. One of my grandsons had a treasure hunt birthday party and gave this book to each of the kids that came as a party favor, along with gold-wrapped chocolate coins, and a treasure map he drew and photocopied. It was a lot of fun!
