    Now keep in mind, I don't have this book, Yet. It will be here in a few days. Any ways, when I look at x+c* the first thing I came up w/ is:
    (x=angry/cross)+(c*=starfish) or an Angry Starfish. Now, I am absolutely impressed with myself for coming up w/ this answer. Not because I think itís right. But because I think it is extremely wrong, but somehow I came up with it. Mind bottling concept. Any ways. If there is an angry starfish in the storyÖ well I have no idea. Maybe its his chest, or maybe he can open it. Or maybe Iím just crazy. Ŗ--------Very, very real possibility.

    The next thing I see as Iím typing, is my key board. Wouldnít it be clever to use a key board as a ďKeyĒ board? well if thatís the case, letís get clever shall we? x+c* two of these characters share keys with other characters. If we switch them we then have x=c8. WTF is that? Well most likely itís nothing. AgainÖ But, it could be a reference to a Caesar Shift, or somehow to a 5x5 matrix. I donít have the book, so I canít put 2 and 2 together.

    If this is just a bunch of crap, please tell me. Iím really new to all of this. But if itís helpful once again, let me know.

    these are all very good suggestions, however I am unsure if you are on the right track. could not find anything about angry starfish in the story, but don't hesitate to keep contributing! I reccommend you get the book first though, however.

    What type of fish are pictured here and is there any relevance to them being in the picture? There seems to be many tropical fish--perhaps an Angel fish, Clown fish and a Moorish Idol, among other types.

    It reminds me of the masquerade hint with all the animals in the picture that ended up spelling "Merry Christmas".
    Here is a fish website for identification:
    (Saltwaterfish.com -- Fish)

    Someone else pointed out the potential of a music-based clue (which would follow the piano-keys in one of the illustrations). FACE are the notes on a treble clef between the lines. Not sure if that makes any sense, but I hadn't seen anyone else mention it.

    I think that makes a lot of sense to me and I have not seen anyone really mention that yet. There are many other factors which point to this riddle relying on some form musical knowledge including the title of the book "fandango the KEY to the wind". The back page of the book which is dedicated to Deicy also tells us to "read a SECOND TIME for good MEASURE", all of which can directly be musical related clues.

    Now, if only I knew something about music...

    Those piano keys on Page 11 are messed up... but on Page 23 we're instructed to WHISTLE A TUNE.
