Treasure from the Sea

Treasure from the sea.

by Francesca Riley

illustrated by Elspeth Alix Batt 

Treasure from the Sea is based on an actual event. Megan loves to stay with Nan and listen to Nan’s stories about the treasures she has collected on her beach walks, but Megan would love to find her own treasure and tell her own story. This narrative describes Megan’s holiday quest. She finds several objects but nothing really special until she notices a fish that has become stranded in a sandy stream on the beach. With help, Megan manages to get the fish back to the sea, safe from the hot sun and hungry seagulls. At last, she has her own story of “treasure from the sea”.
