    Default Pink

    Why are the numbers pink?
    If you go through the book, there are 15 pink lettes, though i have not been able to get them to work to mean anything.
    Note: This includes "to Helen" on the next page.
    Some people are like slinkies, completely useless but you still have to smile when you see one fall down.

    What are the pink letters you have found?

    Default Guesses

    They could pertain to the pictures of letters that begin chapters. There are 15 of those (if you include the "The" cube as one and disregard the simple colored letters). However, if you arrange those letters in the order that those pink numbers suggest, you get:

    S W H B R O T F D I Y [THE] Z T T

    Which obviously means nothing. I couldn't find anything else in the book that related to the number 15. If you count the "To Helen" and the other pink letters, which is just an "A" beginning chapter 7 ("Ana"), you get 8 letters (Spades, where did you find 15?). If you count "To Helen" and all the non-fancy letters beginning chapters, you get 12 (just a coincidence, I'm guessing).

    So I guess it's one of these things here, or "SAVE OUR TREES ART", as Troving Along said, which doesn't seem like it got anybody anywhere either.

    Default The fairy pointing to the letters

    Just to play devil's advocate here--has anybody thought of a link between the fairy pointing to the numbers. She is only seen a few more times in the book. She points to some of the puzzle pieces (p. 51 & p. 61? ) and is on the page with the puzzle pieces (p. 59). I'm thinking there is a correlation there-seems simple to me. I just can't figure out what the correlation is to the numbers. The only other idea that I have is that the 15 letters relates to the missing, extra, or other letters throughout the book.

    Anyways that specific fairy is nowhere to be seen other than those few pages with the numbers and the puzzle pieces. Hmmmmm.

    Default I fibbed

    She's on one more page--but I still think they are all linked. Let the fairies point the way.

    Default Same fairy on 41?

    Is the fairy at the beginning pointing to the pink numbers the same fairy as the one on page 41?

    Both wear yellow and have the red and blue buttons. However their faces are different.

    If they're the same, is there a reason she appears on 41, 51, and 61?

    Has anyone attempted to apply the numbers to other 15 letter phrases? (I have without success.) I can't believe that the only thing these letters apply to "A treasure's Trove..." unless it is a clue to decode something else.

    SAVE OUR TREE'S ART sounds like a pretty definitive clue to me. The only question, which no one has been able to convincingly answer, is what does that mean? Cut out the tree pictures in the book? Find well-known nature paintings in museums? Find where this phrase (or something like it) is used in literature?

    I've tried about a dozen or so alternate methods for using the number code, but the more that I fiddle with them, the more I'm convinced that this has already been solved. Now we just need to make the next leap from the TREE'S ART clue.

    Let's anagram SAVE OUR TREE'S ART:

    overt as treasure
    sever or saturate
    over at treasures
    a traverse routes
    over statues rear
    a route traverses
    to a traverse user

    A "traverse" in surveying is a series of lines connected at their endpoints... interesting. Also interesting that the word "treasure" is hidden in there.

    My program made 2266 anagrams from that phrase. Nothing looks useful, though...

    Well, it IS an anagram of "A Treasure's Trove"
