The Treasure Hunt is a classic children’s storybook. It is based around the loveable Percy the Park Keeper and his animal friends. Percy plans a treasure hunt for his friends around the park, however things do not go according to plan!

This storybook is beautifully illustrated by Butterworth himself and could be used as a read-aloud story for children in a Foundation Stage or Key Stage 1 class. There are many cross curricula themes which could be drawn out and used in the classroom such as a day
Percy the Park Keeper: A Classic Treasury by Nick Butterworth

Nick Butterworth has written a number of Percy the Park Keeper books focusing on one specific story. However, this book contains a number of different stories about the animals and Percy in the park as well as information about Percy's favourite places in the park and his animal friends. All of the stories are based on a park keeper called Percy who lives in the park and takes care of all of his animal friends that live there also.

Classic stories perfect for kids
Delusional local government worker, possibly schizophrenic, has mundane conversations with a remarkably diverse array of British fauna. The delirious Doctor Doolittle's sadly limited diet of boiled eggs and toasted soldiers may account for his propensity to ramble fantastically, or it may be the lack of contact with other people.
Adorable illustrations and sweet, simple stories for younger children.
