Maps contain hidden clues which enable the reader to find long-missing pirate treasure. In the eighteenth century, during the golden age of the pirate, a family of mapmakers was entrusted with all the secrets of the greatest pirates. The McGee's were commissioned by buccaneers to draw maps to their buried treasure. But the mapmakers had a secret of their own; carefully hidden in their maps were clues leading others to the pirates loot! These maps have been lost for hundreds of years until now. The authors have recreated thirteen of the original McGee maps in this fantastic collection of treasures from the real pirates of the Caribbean. Readers can look for clues in the book and enter their answers to the riddle on the Simon & Schuster web site (www.simonandschuster.com/losttreasures) to claim their prize, the long-missing fourteenth map

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the other members of the Inklings met each week to read and discuss each other's work-in-progress, offering both encouragement and blistering critique. How did these conversations shape the books they were writing? How does creative collaboration enhance each individual talent? And what can we learn from their example? Beautifully illustrated by James A. Owen, Bandersnatch offers an inside look at the Inklings of Oxford - and a seat at their table at The Eagle and Child pub. It shows how encouragement and criticism made all the difference in The Lord of the Rings, the Chronicles of Narnia, and dozens of other books written by members of this literary circle. You'll learn what made these writers tick and more : inspired by their example, you'll discover how collaboration can help your own creative process and lead to genius breakthroughs in whatever work you do"--Back cover
