Editorial Reviews


"5 stars. There was once a time when we wouldsit at the knees of elders and listen to stories and parables. ... there wasalways a hidden message buried within the story lines. The tale unfolds like astory being shared by a clever storyteller. ... Karl Beckstrand's picture bookstory ... is exactly what its title suggests: a parable. ... In this fast-pacedworld of trinkets and high tech toys, it is so easy to get caught up with thenewest and latest toy. ... There is a growing need to take a step back andvisualize what's really important in life. ... For one little boy, his ability tomake ingenious and useful objects out of discarded things defined him. ... Achance encounter with an old woman sitting by a stream turns into a verylucrative enterprise. When the boy asks the old woman what she is looking at,she simply says, 'Trouble and treasure.' The boy asks for an explanation andshe tells him that the scattering of branches in the stream is causing ablockage that the fish can't swim past. And the treasure? That's what the boywill discover. ... And it's not what you would think. ... It is colorfullyillustrated to help move the events along. At the end of the book, once thetreasure is revealed, the author allows the reader to peruse some further ideasof how to build one's own treasure. ... A very educational resource and a goodstory as well." - Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite

From the Inside Flap

"Hello," said the boy, curious to know who she was--and why she stared so intently at the dead wood.
"Hello," said the old woman, not taking her eyes from the branches.
 "What are you looking at?" asked the boy.
"Trouble and treasure," she said.
