A Boy Called Duct Tape by Christopher Cloud

Pablo Perez is a 12-year-old kid without much going for him. His classmates have dubbed him “Duct Tape” because his tattered discount-store sneakers are held together with…you guessed it, duct tape. He can’t escape the bullying.
Pablo’s luck changes after he finds a $20 gold coin while swimming with his sister in a river near their home. Pablo later buys a $1 treasure map at the county fair. The map shows the route to the “lost treasure” of the notorious outlaw Jesse James. Pablo can’t help but wonder: Is there a link between the map and the gold coin?
He is determined to find out, and he, his 9-year-old sister, Pia, and 13-year-old cousin, Kiki, hire an ill-mannered cave guide, Monroe Huff, and begin a treacherous underground adventure in search of treasure. Their treasure hunt is made more perilous because they are being followed by the evil Blood brothers, who want the treasure for themselves. The Blood brothers will stop at nothing to claim the treasure as their own.

Stoudt came up with an idea to use a waterproof, cloth-based tape to secure the cases. She told her supervisors about the idea, but they did not implement it. Stoudt decided to write a letter to President Roosevelt to tell him about her idea instead.

Ducts have to be taped. What possible use could ducks have for really sticky tape? A fair point—unless you mean Duck, the brand. As the story goes , during the postwar suburban housing boom, contractors who installed heating and air conditioning discovered duck tape was handy in patching ducts, too. As the tape had never been patented, scores of brands were making it, and only when faced with the need to differentiate did Manco trademark the Duck name, going so far as to develop a corresponding duck mascot for the packaging, rendered by a former Disney cartoonist. No less than the venerable William Safire of The New York Times has researched and confirmed the above version of events give or take , but there are still those—including, apparently, a former marketing honcho from Scotch tape maker 3M—who dispute it.

  1. The military specifically needed a waterproof tape that could be used to keep moisture out of ammunition cases.
