Treasure: The Golden Owl - References


Recommended Posts

On The Trail Of The Golden Owl (French: Sur la trace de la chouette d'or) is a French armchair treasure hunt book created by communications expert Régis Hauser under the pseudonym "Max Valentin" and illustrated by artist Michel Becker. The book was first published in 1993. It provides clues to the location of a buried statuette of an owl, created by Becker.

The puzzle contained within the book remains officially unsolved as of 2020, making it the second longest-running contest in the armchair treasure hunt genre. Hauser/Valentin died in 2009, and the solutions are now held by his lawyer.

A new edition of On The Trail Of The Golden Owl written by Michel Becker was announced on September 16, 2019, via the Rochefort Museum of the Golden Owl, called The Secret Notebooks (4th edition 2019).
