Luna and the Treasure of Tlaloc


Luna Brownstone’s parents are renowned for their bravery and selflessness. It means that they will drop everything to go to others’ aid, wherever in the world they’re needed. What’s more, for an early age, Luna has joined them. However, seeing them tricked, robbed and left alone, destitute and scared, has changed something in her. It’s meant that she’s determined to take what she can from wherever she can. Thereafter, she’s stolen ‘The Brazen Head‘ from Andalucia, ‘the crown of the mighty King Doldemar, ruler of all the dwarves in Germany’. Then again, she’s robbed the flaming pearl from a Chinese dragon.

What’s more, she’s heard of the great riches in Aztec Americas. Therefore, when she overhears the quest for a raincloud from Tlaloc, Luna’s determined to participate. After all, Tlaloc is renowned for its gold and treasures. What’s more, the intrepid traveller who has volunteered for the quest is a small girl. Luna resolves to seize her map and take the treasures for herself.

However, might the journey affect Luna? After all, it involves crossing a sacred mountain, fighting off dangerous animals, trekking through dense forests, alongside solving a difficult riddle. Then there’s facing up to Tlaloc…

Bookwagon is delighted to welcome Luna and the Treasure of Tlaloc aboard. Joe Todd-Stanton’s Brownstone collection is a deservedly beloved series a further treasure!

Luna and the Treasure of Tlaloc

Joe Todd-Stanton

(Flying Eye Books)

It seems that the example of Luna’s parents in ‘their incredible selflessness‘ prompts her actions. After all, if she’s joined them on adventures across the world where she’s seen them experience hardship for their efforts, maybe something’s due to snap? Luna’s response is to determine that she will ‘only look out for herself’. However, what if her ‘hunt for riches‘ might lead her to join Atzi’s quest to beg Tlaloc’s mercy for a rain cloud. It seems the ‘barren landscape‘ is ‘ravaged by drought‘ and rain is needed desperately.
However, Luna’s intentions are evil. She sees Atzi’s map and hears about the treasures she carries and the potential treasure ahead! Could it be that journeying through ‘thick undergrowth‘, over the ‘sacred mountain’, overcoming ‘dangerous creatures‘ might affect Luna’s thinking?
Joe Todd-Stanton offers a further story from the Brownstone collection with Luna and the Treasure of Tlaloc. It seems we journey through ancient Americas, following legends of gods and mortals from Aztec legend. What’s more, we have riddles to solve, riches to contemplate and relationships to consider. Like Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx, for example, the storytelling is succinct yet descriptive while the pictures are dense and detailed and spectacular. Bookwagon is overjoyed to welcome Luna and the Treasure of Tlaloc aboard.
