The first story in an amusing new series from Newbery-winner Gary Paulsen. Dunc and Amos aren't impressed with the old parrot in the pet store, even when they learn that the bird speaks four languages, has outlived ten of its owners, and is probably 150 years old. But when it starts mouthing off about buried treasure, Dunc and Amos pay full attention.
