Publisher's Summary

Stories to make your hair curl…stories for reading strictly after dark.
When Gavin is given a metal detector for Christmas, he thinks he's going to turn up tonnes of treasure. How wrong can he be? Until he discovers the playground, that is, but the treasure he finds hidden there proves far more deadly than any pirate's loot. Far, far more deadly.


Audible Editor Reviews

Gavin loves finding treasure in the sandbox with his metal detector until he meets a group of mysterious children with other plans for this treasure hunt. This haunting story for children will make young listeners gasp and giggle. Australian audio artist Humphrey Bower's performance is delightful. He uses an easy, deliberate pacing perfect for kids. At less than 40 minutes long, this little story will keep kids captivated. American young ones won't mind his light accent, either, because his enunciation is impeccable.
