This box is a part of the Parade of Books Letterbox Series. The clues lead from box to box. You should check the first box in the series, Lord of the Flies, for general trail information.

From start to finish, The Sorcerer’s Stone to the Deathly Hallows, they are in the parade of books. I picked my copy up at midnight, and read until 4am before I found a spot where I could stand to put it down and sleep a while. I woke up around 7am and read until I finished it at 11am. And there was a huge let down, that the stories from this wonderful world were over, the same thing I felt the fist time that I read Lord of the Rings, I wanted the stories to continue.

To find the Deathly Hallows, continue down the path from Turn of the Screw. Is a dangerous curve really the best place to have a picnic? Did you bring your butter beer and cauldron cakes along? How many trains derailed here? Continue passing a bench overlooking a golf course on your right. You will come to a stop ahead sign for Boettcher Road. Start counting the black spaces between the lines with the first complete space after the sign. Go the same number of spaces as there were train derailments, then add one more space for good luck for the Hogwarts Express so it reaches Hogwarts safely. Look to your right for a four trunk tree. The Deathly Hallows are hidden behind the base of the trunks. The tree is not far up the little bank, but it is fairly steep and slippery, so take care. There is a muggle house up and over the bank, so take care hiding the Deathly Hallows again so that they are not visible!!
