Summary

A legendary treasure... a secret palace... one big adventure! 
When 12-year-old Brock Ford is invited to Africa with his globe-trotting anthropologist uncle Dirk Armstrong, he jumps at the chance to ditch his boring hometown to spend the summer on safari among wild animals and friendly natives.  But Brock and Dirk are barely off the train in Nairobi when mysterious artifacts begin to surface which indicate the legend of an ancient lost treasure may actually be true.  It’s an adventure that takes them over the Serengeti plain, through an underground Chagga fortress, and up the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro itself. Their discovery might be the greatest archaeological find of the century, but it could also trap them within the mountain’s volcanic depths forever.

    A pint-size robot with a big spirit goes on an interstellar adventureRunning low on metal, an assembly line spits out something unusual: a peculiar little robot, no bigger than a boy. His name is Sprockets, and though he is small, he has the most powerful electronic brain on Earth. “Destroy him!” cries the foreman, but Sprockets escapes. He runs through the moonlit city, pushing his little body as hard as he can until rain starts to fall—and he begins to rust. But Sprockets is rescued just in time by Jim and his father, Dr. Bailey—a brilliant inventor who sometimes has trouble with fractions. Luckily for him, there is no finer tabulator than Sprockets. They adopt this little robot as their own, and soon set off for another world—where Sprockets will be charged with saving the universe and learning what it is to be alive.

    A boy and his grandpa hope to strike oil in drought-ridden Oklahoma  It’s hot in Oklahoma. There’s no wind, the wells are dry, and the ground is dead. Orvie’s family is doing everything they can to keep their farm going. If they miss a payment on the mortgage, the bank will take their home away, and they’ll have nowhere else to go. Farming is tough, honest work, and it’s no way to get rich. For years, Orvie’s grandfather has sworn that there’s oil under their land, and as soon as it starts bubbling up, they’ll have more money than they know what to do with. But when the oil boom sweeps across Oklahoma, Orvie will find there are some problems that money can’t solve.   This rich portrait of life during the Oklahoma oil boom provides a lovingly detailed look at a forgotten time in history.
