At the Top
Zero wants Stanley to teach him how to read Stanley said yes but only if zero would dig part of his hole. After a while of zero digging 2 holes the other kids were making fun of Stanley because they think that Stanley is paying zero to dig his hole. Stanley and this boy named ZigZag got in to a fight with each other and then zero whacked his counselor with a shovel right in the head, and both Stanley and zero and away.
Stanley open the chest!
Stanley and zero are almost to the top of the Big Thumb and they find a big puddle of water and under that puddle was lots of onions. After a day or 2 they finally decided to go up higher so they did.
Stanley and Zero finally got to the top of the mountain and they decided to go all the way back down the mountain and back to camp so they can find something else that is in one of the holes that Stanley dug up before.
When they got back they got shovels and started digging and they did find a treasure chest that had Stanley's initials on it and the Warden caught Stanley and Zero and the next day later Stanley's lawyer came and wanted to take him home Stanley did not want to leave Zero behind so zero got to go with Stanley and Zero was reunited with his mother again.
