    The Newbery Award-winning author of The Whipping Boy, Sid Fleischman is an author of children's books, screenplays, novels for adults, and books on magic.

    Brett Helquist is the illustrator of many books, including A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. He is also the author of Bedtime for Bear and Roger, the Jolly Pirate. He grew up in Utah and now lives in Brooklyn, New York.

    In this rollicking adventure set during the California Gold Rush, Jack's aunt is forced to sell her beloved mansion to meet her debts. She is still unable to raise enough money to pay her creditors, and twelve-year-old Jack goes to California in search of gold to help her. Joined by his trusty butler, Praiseworthy, Jack finds adventure and trouble at every turn. Will Jack strike gold in San Francisco or come home empty-handed?

    This new edition features illustrations by Brett Helquist.

    • a fantastic tale of adventure

      This is a great read, fun for kids and adults. I was surprised I hadn't come across it before since it's an old book and written with the same kind of quality as Around the World in 80 days. It's set in the California Gold Rush days, and is full of surprise turns and clever ingenuity.
