Synopsis

Captain Maisy and her crew are off on an exciting treasure-hunt adventure — just waiting for little explorers to help by searching under all the fun flaps.

The treasure’s hiding in a chest.
Find three keys to help your quest.

Yo-ho-ho! Maisy and her pirate band are on a treasure trail, but first they need to locate three keys — one buried in the sand, one in the mango trees, and one underneath the sparkly sea. There are dozens of different places to look, and so many fascinating things to find under the flaps! When at last the treasure chest is opened, it’s time for young hearties to join in the party, with the flip of a few more flaps and the spin of a festive wheel.
