Mon-Ton is a story of adventure and magic. A fantasy book for both the young and young at heart readers. This is a story greatly enjoyed by 3rd and 4th graders.
Who are the books for?
Mon-Ton books are written for anyone who would like to relive the time when they had a story read to them or would like to share that experience with a young one. The story is written in a fashion that would allow the reader to picture the characters in their own mind, this one could look like my father, that one could look like my grandfather and so on. It is a book that allows a person to use their imagination. Something that is being somewhat lost in today’s graphic intense movies and games, which do not allow much room for the imagination because it is right in front of you.

Mon-Ton: The Old Man and his Treasure is a children’s book by Vance Bell. Set in a small village that rests in the shadow of the Mon-Ton Mountain, Bell introduces us to a magical world, rich with imagination.
The Old Man and his Treasure is the first in the Mon-Ton trilogy. I would recommend Bell’s work for reading to young children…

Mon-Ton... Book One
The Old Man and His Treasure
This is a story of adventure and magic. A fantasy book for both the young and young at heart reader. This is a story greatly enjoyed by 3rd and 4th graders. The Old Man from Mon-Ton had visited the village for as long as anyone could remember. However, none gave him more than a passing thought. That is until one day, a young man, Bowdean, could not stop thinking about the old man and where he lived. He followed him to his home, built into the heart of the Great Mountain, Mon-Ton. Bowdean was told that it was his “Destiny” to go on a quest. The old man showed Bowdean how to cross the desert, capture an Elf to gain his help in getting past big lizards, face a Troll, cross a long valley, and find the key, a large ruby, to gain access to another scroll. Using this scroll, Bowdean continued the quest, and found a Unicorn in a small valley. The Unicorn turned into a Pegasus and flew Bowdean over the mountains into a grand canyon, right into a battle with many Dragons.

Haigan was never far from their thoughts. A little over a month after Jewel's fourth birthday, Taigan approached them with a scroll. It was their scroll, the one that showed of Gem and Bowdean’s coming. As he spread the scroll out onto the table, he said, “It just revealed the new information. Look at the bottom.” He pointed to the new symbols. “You both need to return to Mon-Ton.”

Excerpts from the Books:
The Troll slowly stood, swinging his club from hand to hand. “What a nuisance.” The Troll said to no one in particular. “I need to finish putting my meat away. Shall we begin?”
Looking out of the corner of his eye, Bowdean saw a blue glow of power building at the tip of Gem’s arrow. He turned his attention to his own power.
“Kin of Haigan. Have you come to return what was stolen? We can sense our eggs.” The screeching voice came from the Griffin on the right.
“We must have won.” The elf said as he closed his eyes again.
The small voice was screaming “Mommy, Daddy you’re home! It wasn’t me that broke the window, really it wasn’t. I missed you!” .
