Jingo Django by Sid Fleischman

Orphan Jingo Hawks is out of luck when Mrs. Daggatt hires him out as a chimney sweep to the awful General Dirty-Face Scurlock. But it's gypsy luck that day in 1854 puts Jingo into the right chimney and then into the care of the mysterious Mr. Peacock-Hancock-Jones, who claims to know Jingo's scoundrel father. Together they set out on a treasure hunt from Boston to Mexico for buried gold. But they are not alone -- those nasty gold diggers Mrs. Daggatt and General Scurlock are hot on their trail. But Mr. Peacock-Hancock-Jones has more than a few surprises in store . . .

About the Author

As a children's book author Sid Fleischman feels a special obligation to his readers. "The books we enjoy as children stay with us forever -- they have a special impact. Paragraph after paragraph and page after page, the author must deliver his or her best work." With almost 60 books to his credit, some of which have been made into motion pictures, Sid Fleischman can be assured that his work will make a special impact.

Sid Fleischman writes his books at a huge table cluttered with projects: story ideas, library books, research, letters, notes, pens, pencils, and a computer. He lives in an old-fashioned, two-story house full of creaks and character, and enjoys hearing the sound of the nearby Pacific Ocean. He has always lived by the ocean and now lives in Santa Monica, California.
