10-year-old Rudy McCafferty has a weird feeling about the new Loma Grande Mall. It’s just a little odd how it seems to bring inanimate things to life! Halfway around the world, archeologist C.J. Drake is sure he’s finally found the location of an ancient golden idol. But all signs suggest it is now in a little place in Southern California called Loma Grande. A place where a curious young boy investigates, frightened... but excited. A place totally unprepared for the magical power soon to be unleashed upon it…
If you like Harry Potter, Indiana Jones or Goosebumps, you'll love The Lost Treasure of Loma Grande!
