It’s the summer of 1972, in Port Townsend and the annual Keys of Lafitte treasure hunt is underway. Brothers Scott and Gary Martin and their friends Zippy, Jimmy, and Jaq, team up to cipher clues and find the hidden key that will lead them to the pirate map where X marks the spot. Readers will enjoy sharing all the exciting intrigue and adventure with these quirky yet believable characters. Madcap and mayhem follow them every step of the way, which is too bad for them, but great fun for readers. Nason’s illustrations look like animation stills and lend a Saturday matinee movie feel to this story. Best of all, there is a hidden treasure which you will never guess in a million-jillion years, but you will find the key inside Saltwater Taffy.
