    ¿Treasure¿ a gem

    If the name John Bellairs brings up thoughts of nasty wizards, vengeful specters and terrifying plots, then ¿The Treasure of Alpheus Winterborn¿ might be a surprising change of venue. For the first time in his writing for young-adults, the author uses no supernatural elements to tell what is, in fact, an exciting roller coaster ride. True, fans sometime point out this title as a black sheep of sorts, since it is so far removed from what Bellairs is best known for. However the writing is just as interesting and able to pull a reader in for what turns out to be a rather startling and historic find. This is the debut adventure of Bellairs¿s seldom-used characters Anthony Monday and librarian Miss Eells, introducing us to a wild wide that continues through three more books. As an added bonus: try to track down the 1980 made-for-TV special of the book to see Keith Coogan and Dody Goodman solve the mystery!
