The Clock Without a Face

Gus Twintig Mystery
A Picture Book by

We've buried 12 emerald-studded numbers-each handmade and one of a kind-in 12 holes across the United States. These treasures will belong to whoever digs them up first. The question: Where to dig? The only path to the answer: Solve the riddles of The Clock Without a Face!

The call comes in from the shadowy Ternky Tower: 13 robberies, one on each floor, all the way up to the penthouse, where obnoxious importer Bevel Ternky has been relieved of the numbers garlanding the legendary Emerald Khroniker, his priceless, ancient clock. Readers must conduct their own investigations, scouring detailed illustrations for hidden clues and knotty puzzles. All your answers can be found within this book: whodunit and how... and where the real numbers are buried now.

Twelve-and only twelve-emerald-bedecked integers sleep somewhere in this nation's soil. If you can find them, they're yours to keep-and only this book can tell you where they are. So read the story carefully, and examine the illustrations closely. The race is on!
