Publisher Comments:

Ramon cannot believe what he has just found in an oyster hes brought up from an underwater cave where the Manta Diablo, the monster devilfish, lurks. Ramon is holding a pearl. Not just any pearl, but the most fabulous gem he or anyone else has ever seen. But neither Ramon nor his father can foresee the trouble that such a pearl can bring.

Synopsis:

A coming-of-age story in which Ramon learns the family art of pearl diving and respect for the legend that surrounds the giant pearl he finds in a sea creature's cave. "A gripping story that will hold practically any age enthralled."--"The Horn Book." A Newbery Honor Book.
