Summary
The literary scavenger hunt of a lifetime, starring an endlessly endearing non-binary tween Zed Watson loves a few things: their name (which they chose themself!), their big rambunctious family, and{u2014}oh yeah{u2014}monsters. When Zed discovered the mystery surrounding an unpublished novel called The Monster{u2019}s Castle, they were completely hooked. Now Zed is a member of a small but dedicated legion devoted to finding the long-buried text. When a breakthrough discovery leads Zed to the route that they are sure will take them to the treasure, they know it{u2019}s time for a road trip. And with the help of their shy, flora-loving neighbour, Gabe, and his sister, Sam, a geologist who is driving back to college in Arizona, Zed and company are soon off on a wild adventure following cryptic clues. But it{u2019}s not all fun and games. Gabe doesn{u2019}t like Zed{u2019}s snacks, Sam is a bossy driver with total command of the ancient Impreza{u2019}s stereo, and Zed is often misgendered. It{u2019}s a good thing they also encounter kind strangers, potato-themed dance-offs and lots and lots of ice cream along the way. If Zed and Gabe can combine their strengths, survive Sam{u2019}s wrath and best the greedy historian who{u2019}s also hot on the book{u2019}s trail, they just might find the greatest treasure of all. Co-authored by child-parent duo Basil Sylvester and Kevin Sylvester, this is a vibrant and enormous-hearted story about friendship, identity and belonging. It features illustrations by celebrated author and illustrator Kevin Sylvester, and an Own Voices perspective based on Basil{u2019}s experience
