Audience: 6th Grade - 8th Grade
Unfortunate circumstances leave Stanley Yelnats at the mercy of the warden of Camp Green Lake, where he, and other inmates, are forced to dig five-foot deep holes all day, every day, to 'build character.' After hearing rumors of hidden treasure, and a bandit named Kissin' Kate Barlow, Stanley tries to dig up the truth. Can he untangle the mess of clues before he sweats to death, or the yellow-spotted lizards kill him? This book won the Newbery Medal in 1999 and the Rebecca Caudill Award in 2002.
