The Treasure of Alpheus Winterborn by Judith Gwyn Brown,John Bellairs



The Treasure of Alpheus Winterborn is a mystery novel directed at child readers. It was written by John Bellairs and originally published in 1978. The book was illustrated by Judith Gwyn Brown. Adapted for television in 1980. Anthony Monday and his family live in Hoosac, Minnesota, in the 1950s and, while not poor, are having money problems. To make matters worse, Anthony's father suffers a series of heart-attacks, keeping him from working and further straining the family's resources

About book: Books by John Bellairs were a huge treat for my brother and me as kids. Going back over them recently, I realized I couldn't remember anything about The Treasure of Alpheus Winterborn. After struggling to stay interested enough to finish the book at all as an adult, I have some idea why: it's pretty boring. The friendship between the two main characters remains all kinds of sweet, with white-haired librarian Miss Eells and impulsive 13 year-old Anthony Monday leading readers on mysterious adventures

John Bellairs (Author), Judith Gwyn Brown (Illustrator). Book 1 of 4 in the Anthony Monday Mysteries Series. The Treasure of Alpheus Winterborn is quite different from most of Bellairs' other books in that it lacks elements of the supernatural, but I found it no less enjoyable a read. Published on March 2, 2014.

John Bellairs (Author), Judith Gwyn Brown (Author). This is a juvenile story and lots of fun. Who doesn't dream of treasure?! Great characters and action.

John Bellairs, Judith Gwyn Brown (Illustrator). Fair warning: while neither The Treasure of Alpheus Winterborn or any of Mr. Bellairs’ other books involve graphic violence or any kind of inappropriate subject matter, they are DOWNRIGHT SPOOKY and may very well keep you awake long after you turn off the lights! If you’re okay with that then rush right down to your library and grab one of these books but whatever you do, don’t start reading it on a school night!. And what if Winterborn's evil nephew is letting Anthony find the treasure-only to snatch it away?"

Unfortunately The Treasure of Alpheus Winterborn wasn't as good as some of his other books. It's not bad, but it's just a little bit too 1970's to be completely enjoyable. Such an awesome premise: treasure-hunting! And in a library! And yet it's really not anything special. Obviously mine's a different cover than the one I used in this post. Some more info about Ms. Brown. I wouldn't recommend reading this if you've never read John Bellairs before- at least not at first- but I suppose if you're a Bellairs fan it's not such a bad book to check out.

I read this book almost thirty years ago and loved it. So much so that even after I'd long forgotten the title and author, I would ask bookworms I'd just met whether they remembered a kids' mystery book about a boy and a librarian and a weathervane. I finally happened across a different Bellairs book in a used bookstore and it jogged my memory. (Occasioned by a loud gasp that scared my daughter half to death.) A few Amazon searches later, and I FOUND IT!! I read it in just two days and was so happy to see that it held up. Maybe not really adult-level reading, but fun and mysterious and just as wonderful as I'd remembered. Bellairs is wonderful, and this is no exception!

This book really captured my attention. It has very good characters. The writing is good and it's well worth the read.I went on and read another in the series.

Ordered as a gift for a 12-year-old grandson. He loves John Bellairs books!
Really cute and well written. A few typos in the Kindle version but nothing terrible. Super easy read for an adult but would be liked by kids, too.
