Title: Buried Gold
Author: Nina Milton
Kind of book: Adventure

Explanation of the title:
The idea of the title Buried Gold is, the scarp with a thick coating of wild golden yellow daffodils. It’s a beautiful view you have when you look down.

Characters:
Pete: His friends called him Peter the Brummy, because he comes out Birmingham (Page 5). He likes a bit of excitement and a bit of adventure (Page 7)
Sarah: She is the sister from Pete and she is eight years old (page 3). There is not much to tell about here, because she is not much in the story.

Phil/ Jon/ Ted: they are the only boys, who are in the same class with Pete and lives in the same town to. They think it’s funny to call Pete a Brummy, because Pete comes from Birmingham. In the very first beginning they are not nice to Pete (Page 5). In the end of the story is Ted the best friend of Pete (page 23).
Bill: A man who lives in a big house with a big garden. He is tall, powerful-looking, messy brown hair and his face was lined and brown but he isn’t an old man (page 8/9). He is a Ranger (Page 10). He has a motor, it looks very old and is caked with mud.

Time:
The time when the story plays is the time where we live in now. You know that, because on page 3 can you read about what sort of things you can do in Birmingham. All that things are things we have now in the same time.

Settings:
United Kingdom, because Pete lived in Birmingham and moved to Lynton in New Forest and that is in the United Kingdom (Page 3/4).

My opinion:
It is a nice book, because you don’t know what’s coming next. You can’t expect what is happening in the book. As the end of the story, you think that they are going to find real gold. Bill has never said it was real gold, but you think is, because he said something about buried gold. On the end you know that Bill meant the beautiful wild gold yellow daffodils on the scarp.
I think it is an easy book to, because the words are not difficult and the story is easy to understand.


Summary:
Pete, Sarah (his sister) and his parents are moving to another place to live. The left Birmingham and are going to Lynton a little town in New Forest. The are moving because the father of Pete has been promoted, he is going to boss over a whole region. In the very first beginning Pete doesn’t like moving to another place, because he don’t want to lose all his friend. Another thing is he liked Birmingham a lot because there is always something to do. When Pete doesn’t know what to do in the new house, he is going out. He is looking around in the town.
