Elliot Moose was digging a hole. He'd started right after lunch and by the time his friend Socks came along, he was almost up to his knees.

"What are you doing?" asked Socks.
"I'm digging for treasure!" said Elliot.

  Elliot Digs For Treasure
Written & Illustrated by Andrea Beck

When Elliot Moose finds a map with a mysterious X, he knows that means treasure! So out in the garden he goes to dig. Dreaming of riches, Elliot's friends all join in. The hole gets deeper and deeper, but there's no sign of treasure - at least not in the way they had imagined.

When the friends discover that the X actually marks the spot where Lionel plans to plant his new tree, they share a good laugh. But things aren't so funny when Elliot realizes they're trapped in the hole with no escape! How will they ever get out?

 

Reviews

School Library Journal
“Beck's choice of language will appeal to readers. Pencil-crayon illustrations are softly textured, facial expressions help readers experience the emotions of the story. Elliot fans will discover that even ordinary toys can be treasures.”
