A book for treasure hunters
NEW YORK -- The original jewels have been found but for hunters who can't stop looking -- and those who want to find a recently announced extra bauble -- comes "The Official Solution Book to A Treasure's Trove."
"A Treasure's Trove: A Fairy Tale About Real Treasure for Parents and Children of All Ages" by Michael Stadther was originally published last year. At the time, the author told The Associated Press he intended to write a story that would appeal to all ages and he wanted to encourage children, parents and even grandparents to work together to track down the treasures.
Stadther personally hid $1 million worth of jewels made to look like the forest creatures who star in the fantasy story.
The new solution book offers clues on how Stadther's mind works, which might help readers prepare for the upcoming second book called "Secrets of the Alchemist Dar." Plus, there's still the extra gold token named for the book's villain Rusful that can be exchanged for a rare, uncut black diamond still out there.
The original jewels were hidden across the country, from Ricketts Glen State Park in Pennsylvania to Jackson, Wyo.
