Review:

In this exciting California Gold Rush adventure, 12-year-old Jack and his butler, Praiseworthy, set out to strike it rich and save their family from their financial problems. Sid Fleischman’s writing is hilarious and witty, and this book is filled with metaphors, idioms, and wordplay. It also teaches readers fascinating information about the Gold Rush.
