"CodeQuest is a brand-new narrative nonfiction series that challenges the reader to solve historical mysteries. Each title presents a unique, interactive story in which the reader learns about historical codes, pictograms and symbols by completing various code-breaking tasks." After a visit to the food market, a young Peruvian girl discovers a golden cob of corn amongst her shopping bags. She returns to the market stall, but the stall holder has disappeared... Symbols printed on the golden corn lead our narrator into a quest to find the mysterious stall holder and discover why messages are being left for her, and what they could mean.
