Bigger 5 x 5 + FAIRY BREAKTHROUGH!
I am now 100% convinced that my earlier assertion about the faries in the chapter headers was correct...

Let's refer back to the poem...

Page 66 With name in hand the fairies know
Page 69 And they will show you where to go
Page 77 There are thirteen
Page 83 The secret is not half but it is not whole.

Now look how many fairies there are...

Fairy | Co-Ordinates
------------------------------
Z... 3,4 (using the entire square, not just what she is pointing to)
F.... 4,2
D... 2,3
B... 4,1
S... 3,1
O... 2,5
T... 4,1 (the Picken)
Y... 1,2
E... 4,4 (the "THE" block Picken)
Th.. 5,2 (the There Fairy)
T... 3,1
R... 1,2
I... 4,1

13!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, this is it.... let's focus our efforts...

I think this is a good idea, but I'm not sure you should use the outer boxes, but rather just what the particular fairy is pointing to... so for the first, Z= 2,2

Just a thought amongst others...

How would you fill the 5x5 grid if you have duplicated coordinates?

13 faeries + 12 insects (jewels) = 25 (5x5 grid)

Interesting... Could it be that these are the elements which populate the grid?

Then there is still one left, the crystal pook. That's 26.

Maybe he's not included though.

An even code with one piece nary? 26 - 1 = 25?

I dunno, this 5x5 has me bonkers

not 100%
Yes there are 13 chapters with faires on the first letter, but if you take ALL the letters (THE and THERE included) and add in the other bold letters you get a total of 25.

fairy.... other
Z ......... W
F .......... B
D ......... A
B ......... A
S ......... P
O ......... T
T
Y
THE
THERE
T
R
I

Seems easier to fill the 5x5 grid with 25 letters, than 13.

These *could... be pointing us to pages in the book
ie: 34
42
23

etc.

Interesting prospects, guys, very interesting.

How about the colours in the grids? He has said that they are important. Do certain letters correspond to certain colours?
I'm pondering.
