Children’s literature: Tikulus Treasure

The holidays are only starting: Tikulu and Dimoune take this opportunity to go on another adventure on a mountain in Mauritius. Dimoune is faster than Tikulu: he finds himself all alone on top of the mountain. Our Mauritian hero can’t see his friend Dimoune anymore! How awful! Fortunately, his bird friends are there to help Tikulu and show him the way. What a relief! Tikulu tracks Dimoune down and finds him safe and sound in a cave. However, this cave seems quite mysterious… Some strange inscriptions cover the walls: “JAN BATAVIA 1635”. What could it possibly mean?

Tikulu and Dimoune want to know the truth: what do these inscriptions mean? Who wrote them? What secret lies under these mysteries? All these questions haunt Tikulu and his friend Dimoune in this second adventure.
