Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Allen's newest book presents a discerning look into the meaning of ``treasure.'' Herbert and Harry are brothers who enjoy being together until they discover a treasure chest while fishing. The ensuing rift over ownership leaves Harry swimming for shore and Herbert escaping with the treasure. Herbert's concern over the treasurethat Harry or someone else will find itturns the find into a lifelong burden as he searches for an impenetrable hideout so he can sleep without worry. His is a life of constant vigilance, while Harry, who ``had no treasure,'' is surrounded by plump grandchildren and is ``always able to sleep soundly.'' Allen's vibrant line-and-wash color illustrations show page after page of Herbert's burgeoning problems and then, with one revelatory picture of Harry, shows how the brother's paths have drastically diverged. A bit of a moral and a lot of fun. Ages 5-8. (September)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3 When Harry and Herbert, two brothers, pull a treasure chest into their fishing boat, it signals the end of their companionable life together. In their struggle Herbert wins the treasure. De termined to keep it from Harry, Her bert searches for ever-safer places to hide the chest. His miserly quest finally ends atop a lonely mountainisolated and fortified. Yet Herbert, always un able to sleep for worry, still cannot rest. Meanwhile, Harry, who has never had trouble sleeping, lives a peaceful life surrounded by his loving family. Al len's colorful, cartoonlike watercolors reinforce the message of her short origi nal tale. Herbert grays and balds before readers' eyes, emphasizing the depth of his lifetime obsession, and his stark and rocky surroundings point up the emo tional barrenness of his life. In contrast, Harry glows within the warmth of his family circle. Allen's simple style and vocabulary makes for an effective read- aloud or an excellent choice for young independent readers, yet this implicity belies the theme and content of her tale. What at first glance might appear to be a story for preschoolers might actually find its best audience with elementary school childrenparticularly in con junction with a discussion of fables.
