A Puzzle-Solving Mystery

Key to the Treasure by Peggy Parish
Key to the Treasure

By: Peggy Parish

Genre:  Juvenile mystery

Pages: 154

Published: 1966

Read: July

5 out of 5

I first read this book as a kid and remember loving it. The book is very unique in the fact that the puzzles that Jed, Bill, and Liza find can be solved by the reader before reading how the kids solve it. So it's a true puzzle-solving mystery.  I still worked the puzzles myself this time as well. However, I appreciated more of the story as an adult.  It shows the importance of one's family history being past down through the generations.  I feel this is an excellent example of a children's classic and is definitely timeless.  It's about kids growing up in any decade trying to find a lost treasure hidden on their grandparents property over 100 years ago. This book should be treasured by kids of all ages . Join the journey as the siblings find the key to a treasure!
