More Information

According to Publishers Weekly, this book is to have a 1 million copy first print run - which is extraordinarily high for a book that isn't by J.K. Rowling. It also comes with an interesting hook - a world-wide treasure hunt that will run from late July up until December - the prizes are 100 diamond rings each valued at $10,000. An odd choice of prize, me thinks, considering the target market is 9-12 year olds, but I suppose even the young need their "bling-bling" these days! More information at www.atreasurestrove.com
