While exploring some caverns, Will and Sarah find a treasure but also a threat. They may not get out of those caverns alive! Paulsen begins this book with Will pretending to be the young brave about whom the caverns have a famous legend. Paulsen breaks away from the fantasy to reality, starting the plot of this story. This is sure to suck in those young readers, helping them to imagine adventures they would like to have! Like all of Paulsen books, this one is sure to appeal to the young with a thirst for adventure. His characters always ring true, as they lead the young reader on an adventure that children only dream about. His settings are always vivid, making the adventure even more exciting. His writing is so smooth and effortless, even the young reader will forget she is reading. Every young adventurer will love this book!
