This books is a humorous book in which two friends go on an adventure to find something "spectacular". The two friends decide to dig a hole and just barely miss the spectacular things each time. The illustrations in this book make it a great one. You would not get the main idea of the story with out them. This book is also a good one for older students because you are left wondering if everything actually happened or if it was just a dream they had. You could do so many things with this book in your calssroom. ( )

A story of two boys playing in their backyard searching for a "treasure."

This book is about two best friends seeking an adventure underground for a spectacular surprise, but end up empty handed. It has a unique format due to the main characters digging underground. With every twist and turn, the reader is engrossed in wanting to know what will happen next. Due to this plot, teachers can use this book to teach predicting. The teachers can ask questions to the children about the plot. It can be for children in kindergarten through 3rd grade. There is also a second plot going on with the dog which the teacher can further practice predicting with the students. ( )
