Overview

New in paperback! A fun interactive mystery with a hunt for pirate treasure. Crack codes along with the multicultural cast of characters. Common Core and STEM connections make for easy classroom use.

Cody, Quinn, Luke, and M.E. are the Code Busters—clever clue hunters with a passion for puzzles. On a class trip to the Carmel Mission and the nearby Mission Trail Nature Preserve, the Code Busters learn about California's only known pirate and his missing plunder. Now they're tracking a new prize: pirate gold! But with a fortune at stake, the codes are bound to be hard.

Will the Code Busters be able to follow mysterious maps and figure out the tricky riddles along the way, or will this mystery be too difficult for the friends to solve?

This interactive mystery features more than fifteen codes and puzzles for you to decipher along with the Code Busters, including the Orienteering code, Morse code, and the Trail Signs code. Answers are in the back, if you ever get stuck.

    Hott Synopsis: ¿A pirate named Hippolyte. A hidden treasure at a

    Hott Synopsis:
    “A pirate named Hippolyte. A hidden treasure at a mission. An overnight field trip. A hunt for mission bells. This is awesome!”
    When the Code Busters hear that their class is going on an overnight field trip to visit a local mission where it’s said that treasure is lost due to the pirate Hippolytede Bouchard their code breaking senses kick into overdrive.
    If only they can keep Matt the Brat from ruining it for everyone!

    Hott Review:
    What I liked: The Mystery of the Pirate’s Treasure is perfect! I have a middle-grade trio around here – a daughter and two nieces – that have recently started their own detective agency. This is prefect. Not only is it adorable and GREATLY informative but’s it’s so much fun! This is the perfect book to add to their code-breaking skills!!
    What I didn’t like: I’m going to have to buy three sets of these books & they’re not cheap!
