ALA Booklist
When sixth-grader Hunter Moran attempts to retrieve his underwear from the jaws of his unruly dog, Fred, he has no idea that the ensuing chase will take him to the cemetery and lead to clues to a treasure hidden by town founder Lester Tinwitty. Hunter, twin Zack, and classmate Sarah Yulefski all have big plans for the anticipated windfall, and they eagerly follow their leads into the basement of St. Ursula's school, where Hunter agrees to take drum lessons from Sister Ramona in order to cover up the noise of Zach's and Sarah's digging in the room next door. Predictably, the treasure is much less than expected, and the nuns are not nearly as clueless as the kids think. As in the earlier titles (Hunter Moran Saves the Universe, 2012, and Hunter Moran Hangs Out, 2013), short chapters, nonstop action, good humor, and a cast of well-developed minor characters make this a worthy addition to the easy-chapter-book shelf.
Horn Book

School Library Journal
Gr 4&11;6&12; After inadvertently breaking their father's most recent project, Hunter Moran and his twin brother, Zack, are determined to find the town founder's hidden treasure. But, as with many of their plans, things go wrong from the beginning. After all, getting stuck in the school basement, taking drum lessons, and climbing train bridges wasn't part of the plan. And even worse, it seems that Bradley the Bully has his own group looking for the treasure. Can Hunter and Zack find it before their father discovers his damaged project or are they already doomed? Small town as well as family life are humorously highlighted in this adventure story. Giff adeptly creates an entertaining and believable story about two mischief-making boys. There are enough surprising developments to keep the story moving and engagement high. The short sentences and paragraphs make the book especially appropriate for reluctant readers. A fun adventure well-worth general purchase.&12; Heidi Grange, Summit Elementary School, Smithfield, UT

Hunter, his twin brother, Zack, and neighborhood pest Sarah Yulefsky are about to be rich. All they have to do is find the hidden hoard of town founder, Lester Dinwitty. It shouldn’t be a problem, because they have clues. Shovels in hand, the gang sets to work tearing up their town and getting into some tight spots, including Dr. Diglio's dreaded dentist's chair. In a novel that is both humorous and heartwarming, the twins may leave a trail of havoc behind them, but they also make some leaps forward as they discover the true meaning of family unity.
