Dawn Bosco races to find a treasure at Camp Wild-in-the-Woods

 

She is a terrific detective, but Dawn Bosco doesn’t want anyone at Camp Wild-in-the-Woods to find out that she is secretly afraid of horses. Even Jill Simon isn’t afraid of horses, and she cries all the time.

 

Then Miss Perry, the counselor, announces that there will be a treasure hunt! Dawn knows she can beat Lizzie Lee, the Cool Cat Detective, to the prize. But she might have to face her fear to get there.

 

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Patricia Reilly Giff including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
