The Treasure Hunt is a book in Nick Butterworth's Percy the Park Keeper series. The story combines pleasant illustrations with challenging, yet enjoyable text. Butterworth's inspiration stems from his many walks in the park with his family. The enjoyment he receives from the outdoors is successfully transferred to his stories.
In The Treasure Hunt a selection of animals try to follow Percy's clues through the park. At one of the places where a clue should be, they get more than just a message--they get a big shock! However, the shock soon becomes a nice surprise for everyone. Using literature to pass on important messages to readers, this tried and tested author spoils us with a tale that entertains and inspires. (Ages 5 to 7) --Jon Smith

However, we were inspired by the treasure hunt within the story. Percy draws pictures of the locations of the clues as his animal friends can't read. We created a visual treasure hunt for our son that has expanded over several months to have over 20 clues to chose from. He loves it. The experience is enhanced by reading this story at bedtime on a day when we have had a treasure hunt. How many books actually make you go out and do something different in the real world?
