The real treasure in this book is the money that went in Stadther's pockets. It's the ultimate fairy tale come to life. Conceptually, then, this book is a winner

The real treasure in this book is the money that went in Stadther's pockets. I had really high hopes for this and was pretty disappointed in it. As a children's book it is fairly mediocre. There is really nothing outstanding in the plot or prose and the illustrations are amateurish. Concerning the treasure hunt itself, the book has clues like "above earth and under sky, a golden token you may spy" hidden in the margins. Conceptually, then, this book is a winner. However, if you're looking for a good story to go along with the treasure hunt, you'll have to look elsewhere.

A Treasure's Trove is a beautifully illustrated fairy tale about twelve forest creatures whose mates disappear after being crystallized by a dark dust that falls every evening.

Treasure Trove is a fairy tale about real treasure for parents and children of all ages. The book is fully illustrated. This Fairy Tale takes place in a Great Forest and tells a sweet (and sometimes sad) story about friendship and greed, Good Fairies and Evil Fairies and how love is greater than fear. Also, concealed in the pages of this story, are the clues to twelve very real and very valuable treasures that are hidden around the continental United States for you to find and keep ...treasures similar to the jeweled Forest Creatures in the Fairy Tale. The treasures are not hidden in remote locations but rather in places accessible to everyone. You might even find one by accident, as you walk across a field or down a street. But none are on private property, and none are buried. Nothing needs to be lifted or moved for you to find them. But they are hidden well. The simple clues do not need any special knowledge to find or decipher. Anyone who can read can discover the exact location of each treasure --just the way one of the characters does in the story. This book is more than a treasure hunt. Enjoy reading it and take time to read it to a child. It will remind you and the child that we have to take care of each other, and take care of the earth. Oh yes --and not to be afraid of the dark. So, as you read and look carefully at the illustrations, if you believe in Fairies, you may find the clues that will lead you to the treasure.

Okay, who wouldn't want to pick up a children's book and win a fortune? It's the ultimate fairy tale come to life. Conceptually, then, this book is a winner.

However, if you're looking for a good story to go along with the treasure hunt, you'll have to look elsewhere.

Other reviewers have complained about the book's clunky prose and poor editing. For my part, I was most annoyed by the abrupt and amateurish literary device used to avoid out-and-out telling the reader where the treasures were located. It reminded me of a humorous essay in which a veteran writer explains to novices that when he is unsure of how to end a novel, he solves the problem by writing "Suddenly, everyone was run over by a truck. The End."

Bottom line: Don't expect an enduring work of children's literature -- or even a book worth re-reading (save for the treasure hunt part) -- and you won't be disappointed.

I also bought this book as a gift for my cousin and his son. I had bought it for myself previously, too. I don't feel this story plagiarizes "Masquerade". The treasure-hunt idea is the same, but other than that, it has nothing in common with "Masquerade." I like it better because in "A Treasure's Trove" the story is more enjoyable, with a good guy/bady guy story, and it's easier to understand.

The real treasure in this book is the money that went in Stadther's pockets. I had really high hopes for this and was pretty disappointed in it. As a children's book it is fairly mediocre. There is really nothing outstanding in the plot or prose and the illustrations are amateurish. Concerning the treasure hunt itself, the book has clues like "above earth and under sky, a golden token you may spy" hidden in the margins. Cute, but it doesn't help much. I had really planned for my child and I to read this book and then have a wonderful time planning our treasure hunt. Unless Stadther starts to drop some really helpful clues on the website, I doubt anyone will find any of the treasures. If the book is really full of clues then whoever finds the tokens will be an employee of NSA or something. This leaves me to ponder if the treasures were really meant to be found or are they just a gimmick to sell an otherwise unremarkable book. If you do plan to pursue this, keep in mind that, along with the clues in the book, you will also have to have a great amount of free time just to search endlessly for the tokens. The accompanying "Puzzle Book Companion" is an equal waste of time. My advice is to save the 20 bucks or so you would have spent on this treasure hunt and take your kid to a movie or out for ice cream, you will find it more valuable.

Thank you
i love this book its a big hit in my house however when i got it the pages were bent and then decorative cover that was on it was also all bent up not that big of a deal but when i order something especially something that's supposed to be a collectors edition i would have figured it would have been in better quality instead of just looking like it was carelessly thrown in a box
