They transport the gold bullion from a local bank to a carefully camouflaged ship that awaits in a fjord. The children haul the bricks of bullion tied on their sleds. Under the guise of play, their heroic adventure repeats itself day after day for several weeks. On daily encounters with the German soldiers they risk having their true mission being revealed.

  • Whether or not the story is true, I'd recommend it to any young reader as an adventure story filled with danger. It's inspiring to watch the children pull off their job. And, it's inspiring to witness the underground opposition to the Germans. Seventy-two years after it first came out, Marie McSwigan's Snow Treasure remains an exciting adventure story. And, I'm recommending it to a group of adults in a couple weeks.

    When I was a kid, the edition I read said Snow Treasure was based on a true story. The current edition says, "For many years the story was believed true. But over 60 years later, there is no proof that it ever really happened." I don't care. In my heart and mind, this remains a story of the strength and courage of the Norwegian people, even the children, in the face of the Nazis. It will always be one of my favorite books.

    I had to read this book for school with my class about 2 years ago. It was my favorite book then and I was just seaerching this site when I came across this. I had forgotten the title until now so I am so glad I found it! It is a wonderful, detailed, and great book. I recommend it to anyone regardless of what type of book you liek to read because Snow Treasure has a bit of everything!

    Snow Treasure Snow Treasure is an adventure book, historical non-fiction book, and very suspenseful. Snow Treasure was based on a true story. It was written in 1942 during WWII. It was a normal day for Peter Lundstrom, until he saw his Uncle had returned from his winter voyage early. As the plot thickens, the Nazis have just invaded Peter¿s small village. With the help of Uncle Victor, the people of Norway had hopefully set up a plan to get nine million dollars past the Nazi soldiers. How can they do it, with adults being suspects of doing something, can the kids do it? You¿ll have to read Snow Treasure to find it out. My favorite character is Peter Lundstrom. I like him because of his bravery. For example, when he was building snowmen the Commandant walked right up to him and said, ¿I could use a boy like you to polish my boots and bring me shaving water.¿ Even though I¿m sure he was scared, but he showed bravery by not running away or saying something rude. I also liked him because of his leadership. An example of his leadership was when he told Lovisa to not put the bricks so deep and to hurry and build the snowmen. My least favorite character was the Commandant because he was leading the Nazis and because he was cruel to the children. An example is when he knocked over Lovisa¿s snowman and crushed her fancy snow hat that she had made for her snowman. I think the books strengths are that every event leads smoothly into the next event and that I could picture the events in my mind very clearly when the suspense is very great. I think that a weakness in Snow Treasure is that you can¿t picture the faces very well. I would highly recommend this book to any age and people who like adventure, history, or people who like Chasing Vermeer, Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse, and other books. I would always recommend Snow Treasure.

    Snow Treasure is richly illustrated with a number of black and white illustrations by Mary A. Reardon in what appears to be either pencil or charcoal. This wasn't one of the best books I have read about Norway in WWII, and while I still like the idea of the story, I just don't like the actual story as enthusiastically as I used to. However, this is one of those novels that designed to show children that no matter what they can make a difference and for that reason, I think it is worth reading. And it is an excellent example of how a community can come together to achieve a goal.

Yay! You're now following snow treasure book in your .

I'm sure it seems tame by today's standards, but "Snow Treasure" would be a good book to get a child hooked on between the ages of 8 and 10, before their tastes get jaded and commercialized and ultra-modernized.
