Praise for Treasure of the World:

★ “Rich with memorable characters and streaks of brilliant writing, as in the author’s previous works, Ana’s story takes readers on an arduous and ultimately rewarding journey that illuminates a fraction of the human toll behind the profit-driven pursuits of a materialistic world. Heartbreakingly splendid.” —Kirkus, starred review

★  Utterly riveting. . . [O]ffers a view of complex family dynamics and child labor that is shocking and powerful.” —School Library Journal, starred review

Gripping . . Sullivan effectively portrays 12-year-old narrator Ana and the oppressive demands she faces…skillfully crafting memorable characters and close relationships. . . Sullivan approaches tough topics, including child labor, economic pressure, and repressive gender roles, from a resonant, believably young perspective, balancing Ana’s precarious struggle to survive with hope.” —Publishers Weekly

“Show[s] the kindness of others and the importance of family strength and resilience. . . [and] just how important learning is in bettering your lot in life.” —School Library Connection

“Sullivan, who addressed child labor in the cocoa industry in The Bitter Side of Sweet, here exposes the tragedy of child miners forced to leave school to help support their families by working in the “mountain that eats men.”…Readers are left withhope…but the dire plight of all these families is abundantly clear.” —Booklist
