A beautiful Kirkassi girl, cold-eyed villains and smiling killers, a bazaar merchant peddling slightly used dreams—could any young adventurer ask for more? Not Carlo Chuchio, who is seeking hidden treasure on the legendary Road of Golden Dreams.

With Baksheesh, the world's worst camel-puller, Carlo leads a caravan through the realm of Keshavar. Robbed of all but his underdrawers, mistaken for a mighty warrior and then for a crown prince, Carlo risks his life for a prize that may not even exist.

Newbery medalist Lloyd Alexander weaves a glorious tale of adventure, love, and the treasures that matter most.

The Golden Dream of Carlo Chuchio is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
