Gr. 4^-7. This large-format paperback provides a broad survey of treasures lost and found. Loosely divided into three categories--treasures buried underground, treasures at sea, and ancient treasures--the book offers a series of short articles (generally two pages) on topics such as pirate loot buried on Cocos Island, off Costa Rica; the restoration of the Tudor ship, the Mary Rose; the discovery of the underground army of clay soldiers at Huang Di's tomb; and the recovery of the Mona Lisa after its theft in 1911. The many full-color illustrations include photographs of sites and artifacts, reproductions of period artworks and photos, maps, diagrams, and vivid paintings of varied treasures. Although children researching reports will probably need more information on specific subjects than they will find here, browsers will find this sturdy paperback an enticing introduction to the treasure hunts.
