When two siblings go on a treasure hunt, they aren't sure exactly what kind of treasure they are looking for. What they do know is that treasures are shiny, mysterious and precious. And that all the really good treasures are hidden!

As they explore the forest, their curiosity pays off when they find the biggest, shiniest, most mysterious and precious treasure hidden just over a hill.

Told exclusively in dialogue, this beautifully illustrated picture book exudes a sense of wonder at the natural world and emphasizes the magical qualities of looking through a child's eye.

Also available in French as Trésor, translated by the author, Mireille Messier.
★ "From tiny discoveries to one big treasure, the natural world delights at every turn...A gentle exploration, using a child's words and told at a child's pace, of a marvelous world."
– Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“A wonderful way of rediscovering ancient, life-giving treasures.”
“Treasure reminds us that although we might not always find what we are looking for, we might discover something even more magical—a connection to nature and our Earth.”
“A good story to read aloud.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“Messier and Luxbacher have created a vivid adventure that leads right to a shiny, mysterious, and precious treasure in both French and English. ­ An excellent read-aloud to teach children how one person’s treasure may be different from another’s, but that they are both still important.”
