"A Treasure's Trove"

A Treasure’s Trove Background

Michael Stadther has always loved treasure hunts and knew that one day he would write a story that would provide children and adults with fun, entertainment and the possibility of finding a real buried treasure. The result of his efforts is “A Treasure’s Trove,” a fairy tale that encourages careful reading, puzzle-solving and exploring.

The tale revolves around twelve different forest creatures whose mates are crystallized and disappear during a strange dusk that affects the forest in the evenings. The creatures team up with Zac, a woodcarver, Ana, his part-elfin wife, and the winged Pook. They all set out to find their missing mates and put a stop to the dusk in order to save their forest home.
