A winking pirate with a puffed-out chest and a tendency toward exaggeration leads this story about an ample treasure that has maybe been misplaced. He initiates a dig on his island, and is baffled to come up without the chest of rubies and gold that he just knows is buried there. Bursts of unexpected color make the busy illustrations worth diving into, from edge to electric edge, as the pirate bumbles his way toward a revelation that will tickle young readers.
