Max and Ruby's Treasure Hunt (Hardcover)
Follow the clues and find the treasure with Max and Ruby!
Oh no! A thunderstorm has ruined the picnic that Max and Ruby and their friends, Louise and Lily, have planned. Now the four friends have nothing to do. But Grandma saves the day with an ingenious treasure hunt. The clues are Mother Goose rhymes and jump-rope rhymes, and a missing word in each one leads the bunnies to the next clue, until they reach the prize, a treasure chest of gold-foil-wrapped chocolate coins. This interactive picture book with lift-the-flap clues will keep fans of the bunny siblings entertained for many readings. Max and Ruby star in their own popular show on Nick Jr.
