    Default DROP CAP MAPS FOR TREASURES INFO

    Hi I am confused, can a genius puzzle solver help me. I read that (for example- the grasshopper map was on pg. 59 and the puzzle on pg. 86 I don't understand the 5 x 5 grid, and what is a drop cap map. I saw the 5 x 5 map, but i wish I had an example picture of how it is used. Are these things in the puzzle solving book by M.S.? Butterfly map and puzzle was both on pg. 52? How do I solve? Help me if you have the time? Very much appreciated.

    The 5 x 5 grid looks like this.

    12345
    1ABCDE
    2FGHIJ
    3KLMNO
    4PRSTU
    5VWXYZ

    You find coordinate pairs from the puzzles to pull letters from the grid.(3,1),(1,1),(4,4) = CAT for example.

    The right coordinates in the right order will determine a location in the U.S. Then, you use the drop cap map to find the precise spot at that location. The fairy points to it.

    A drop cap is the big letter at the beginning of each chapter. The map is the vine lines illustrated in the drop cap box.

    Read some of the solutions for more detail on how to extract the coordinates. That's the puzzle part and it's different for each.
