Hunter, his twin brother, Zack, and neighborhood pest Sarah Yulefsky are about to be rich. All they have to do is find the hidden hoard of town founder, Lester Dinwitty. It shouldn’t be a problem, because they have clues. Shovels in hand, the gang sets to work tearing up their town and getting into some tight spots, including Dr. Diglio's dreaded dentist's chair. In a novel that is both humorous and heartwarming, the twins may leave a trail of havoc behind them, but they also make some leaps forward as they discover the true meaning of family unity.

What People are Saying About This


When sixth-grader Hunter Moran attempts to retrieve his underwear from the jaws of his unruly dog, Fred, he has no idea that the ensuing chase will take him to the cemetery and lead to clues to a treasure hidden by town founder Lester Tinwitty. Hunter, twin Zack, and classmate Sarah Yulefski all have big plans for the anticipated windfall, and they eagerly follow their leads into the basement of St. Ursula's school, where Hunter agrees to take drum lessons from Sister Ramona in order to cover up the noise of Zach's and Sarah's digging in the room next door. . . . As in the earlier titles (Hunter Moran Saves the Universe, 2012, and Hunter Moran Hangs Out, 2013), short chapters, nonstop action, good humor, and a cast of well-developed minor characters make this a worthy addition to the easy-chapter-book shelf.
