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 SmithReview:
