|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?
