Book Title: The Treasure Hunt Fish and Miss Bernadette’s Wish
The Treasure-Hunt Fish join in the search for their friend, Marty the Manatee, who has gone missing from the warm waters of the power plant pool. On their way to a happy ending, the three young friends learn the importance of good communication and the buddy system.
Martin’s warm-hearted characters relate a tale of mystery with a happy but very meaningful ending, capturing the essence of the main crime prevention tenants of Stranger Danger Awareness for Children – it’s good have a buddy with you, don’t go anywhere without your parent’s permission, always be aware of your surroundings. This book provides the perfect opening for a very important discussion all parents should frequently have with their children.

This book emphasizes the most important and lasting aspects of life – how dependent we are on each other for the collective well-being – and teaches children that the ability to help others settle a problem is both real and natural.

A delightful tale filled with adventure, humor and a subtle – but important – message. The characters are so much fun and the illustrations are magical – I can’t wait to share this story with my nephews! The Treasure-Hunt Fish series is perfect for the young and the young at heart!
