Dirkle Smat belongs to a club of Explorers in One Oak Bay, but now after a huge storm, the lone Oak has blown over. While investigating the wreckage from the storm the explorers club discovers an old rusted box in the roots of the tree. They take the box back to their club house and in it they find a letter and a treasure map. That's when the big adventure begins.

This book is geared for early readers ages 5-10. I would say it is more suited for 4-8, but it is a fun story and well written and illustrated. It's part of a series so if you and your children enjoy it you could also read Dirkle Smat Inside Mount Flatbottom and Dirkle Smat and the Flying Statue.
