The Piper of Dreams was written by the late Terry Pitts Fenby and illustrated by Bill Bruce. Published on 4 October 1982 by Hodder & Stoughton ISBN 0 340 28606 7, a proportion of the books proceeds was donated to the NSPCC.
The prize was a jewelled golden flute buried in the UK. Unfortunately the hunt was solved shortly after publication and so a new prize of a silver flute was offered - to be claimed by postal entries by the closing date in 1983.
The original golden flute was buried 100 ft from the monument to Captain Cook at Eastby Moor, North Yorkshire.
An explain at ion of the solution is available on Mark Parry's website at http://homepage.ntlworld.com/mparry/treasure/
