Here is the ninth book of this series of ten. Pearson Learning Group is not mentioned, and the publisher's address is Carlsbad, CA. The word count is 314. Sixteen pages. One of the best illustrations in this version is the first, a section of which is also used for the cover: the old farmer bends over caring for the a grapevine while both boys sleep with their backs up against a tree stump. The old farmer's deathbed message is I want to tell you about the treasure! ...It is a great treasure, and it is hidden in the vineyard. I find this version well done, including its emphasis on digging, raking, and plowing (10). The fable's last line is from the sons: He wanted us to learn that hard work can often bring great rewards! It looks like Dominie yielded the rights to this book to the Pearson Learning Group sometime after 2003. Finding two of the books of this series has led to finding many more including this one. Let me see when I can complete the set!
