The article focuses on the low-tech approach called compass to baffle children and parents on the mysteries of the Never Eat Shredded Wheat at the Barrie Public Library in Canada. It reveals that the participants of the activity are the eight-to-twelve-year-old age group who got the North, South, East, West types of directions that led them to a code that had to be deciphered. It also notes that the entire program took a fair amount of work, but will easily be replicated another time.
