This is an engaging sixteen-page pamphlet with stiff covers. Biro's best illustration here may be the double-size picture at the centerfold: the boys run to the field, each with a different dream of treasure pictured in a bubble. True to their nature, the boys give up work when they do not find the treasure. Thus the picture on 13 after the digging is very much like that on 4-5 before the digging. 'The grapes are the treasure,' they said. 'Hard work brings treasure' (16). Do these two statements by the boys fit perfectly together? Now I have found five of the twelve booklets in this series.
