“Hi Jumpeez, Frankie here! My friend Pierre has been visiting the mysterious and wonderful regions of AdventureLand on his summer vacation. While he’s been away, I received a surprise letter from him detailing some of the exciting things he has seen on his vacation. Unfortunately, it seems like parts of the letter have disappeared. If you have ever had the chance to explore AdventureLand, you would know that it takes a lot of work to get to this ancient island! From this letter’s long and difficult journey, its contents have been unfortunately washed away.
Thankfully, our most adventurous JumpStart crewmember CJ came to the rescue! With a magnifying glass in one hand and a pen in the other, CJ spent day and night working to unscramble the words in Pierre’s correspondence to me. However, he could still use a bit of help restoring this message. What he needs now is for a sharp Jumpee to use addition and counting.
First, add up the numbers in the missing spaces of the letter. Second, use that number to identify which letters that number correspond to in the alphabet, and place it in the blanks!
Here’s Pierre’s letter to us below:
Wow, Ad(11+11)entureLa(7+7)d sure is a m(1+0)rvelous place! I have seen so man(5+20) intere(15+4)ting things! From lan(2+2)-dwelling P(7+13)nk-Punks to the T(8+7)wn of Lost S(4+4)ores, there are so many things to explore in this (5+5)umpS(10+10)art land! I also got to meet your friend Es(7+6)ere(4+8)da! She helped me get a (4+3)iraf(3+3)e to decorate the town with!
Well, I must be going! I cannot wait to return to JumpStart and tell you more about my travels in AdventureLand!
