    Default Note on Pook

    I just read the poem again and it says, "In the text you will find the key, for the one that is missing you did not see." I may not be exact with that as I don't have ATT Journal in front of me, but I take this as meaning that perhaps the Pook is all in the text. No picture clues. Or, perhaps there is yet another prize not mentioned yet that is in the text only. Is anyone or anything mentioned in the text that there is not a picture of?

    Just some thoughts...

    Hey Starthinker! You have a very cool website by the way and congrats on your token! The snail is the prettiest jewel IMO.

    Anyway, I have a few thoughts on Pook. And seeing as I will not be searching for him, I would like to say that I believe he is near a golf course and part of the trick in finding him will be to decipher his picture near the end of the book where he is turned to crystal. The colors of each crystal may hold part of the key, not sure and I will drive myself crazy in any attempt to decipher this "puzzle".

    I also believe he is near a cave. Look at crystal pooks photo. See his open mouth? Stalagtites and stalagmites for teeth! Rusful (Sulfur) lived in a grotto (aka a cave). Sulfur comes from caves which also contain sulfur pools or baths.

    I have a pretty good idea of where he may be, but will be very interested to see who finds him and where. I hope I'm right, even though I am not going to search for him. It's still exciting for me.

    Anyway, just wanted to reply and say hi and congrats!!!

    Star thinker that is what I thought. All of the solutions have been mispelled and the real letter that it should be has always been 5 letters from the mispelling. IE Park in the Ant solution is spelled with a D and K is 5 letters from D. chinnaberry was spelled Chintaberry and N is 5 letters away from T )minus the Q. That is just two examples. Also there are tons on mispellings in the book...I think the solutions create a Key to these mispellings that spell out another location. but we need two more solutions to make the Key.

    In the text you will find the key, for the one that is missing you did not see.
    Q is not in the text anywhere. It is the key to filling in the 5X5.

    If I had to guess, the third clue on ATT will tell us more on how to find Pook. Maybe confirm if there is a token, or if the rules for finding Pook are the same as the bugs.

    Stay tuned...
