    Avoiding a group of bullies, Barney Pennimen and his friend Snowy discover a cave with an amazing secret
    Barney Penniman is afraid of his eighth grade friends at boarding school. Since they’re the nastiest guys at school, Barney is safe from being teased, but the gang’s bullying finally pushes Barney too far, and he finds himself alone.
    Then Snowy Cobb, an elf-like, ostracized younger boy, makes a sudden appearance in Barney’s life. And when Snowy finds a mysterious bone on campus, the boys try to determine its origins. Their investigation leads them to a deep, dark, sandy-bottomed cave, and what they discover beneath the sand will test their beliefs—and everything they hold dear. This adventure story was the runner-up for an Edgar Award. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Rosemary Wells including rare images from the author’s collection.
