The Treasure Hunt Excerpt:

It was a glorious morning on Ahway Island. The temperature was warm but not hot, the breeze was refreshing but not cold, and the sky was sunny but still sprinkled with white clouds. In the cozy cave, Dragon slowly woke up and stretched, taking a deep Dragon Breath in and out (deep breath). This was a very special day indeed, Dragon remembered. There was going to be an extra-special party the following afternoon in the big clearing in the middle of the Forest – a party celebrating the entire Ahway Island Family! Everyone had been asked to find a “treasure” – some little, special thing that could be brought to the party for everyone to enjoy.


After fully awakening, Dragon headed out of the cave and into the bright sunshine. What a gorgeous day! A crisp breeze rustled through the trees. Dragon breathed in the fresh, fragrant air, smiling. But what was that? Carried on the breeze was a sound – the sound of singing! After a moment of careful listening, Dragon recognized the voices. It was Freeda, Fernando, and Felicity Frog! They were singing in harmony about the upcoming party, to remind all the animals in the forest to be sure to attend. 


“An Ahway Island Celebration!” they sang. “Join our friends in jubilation! Bring a treasure then to share and show each other that you care!” 


Suddenly, Dragon saw something move in a nearby tree as Gerry Robin landed on a branch. She waved a wing at Dragon and sang out:


“Just bring a little something, anything at all; everyone is welcome, answer to the call!”
