Treasure Trove is a fairy tale about real treasure for parents and children of all ages. The book is fully illustrated. This Fairy Tale takes place in a Great Forest and tells a sweet (and sometimes sad) story about friendship and greed, Good Fairies and Evil Fairies and how love is greater than fear. Also, concealed in the pages of this story, are the clues to twelve very real and very valuable treasures that are hidden around the continental United States for you to find and keep ...treasures similar to the jeweled Forest Creatures in the Fairy Tale. The treasures are not hidden in remote locations but rather in places accessible to everyone. You might even find one by accident, as you walk across a field or down a street. But none are on private property, and none are buried. Nothing needs to be lifted or moved for you to find them. But they are hidden well. The simple clues do not need any special knowledge to find or decipher. Anyone who can read can discover the exact location of each treasure --just the way one of the characters does in the story. This book is more than a treasure hunt. Enjoy reading it and take time to read it to a child. It will remind you and the child that we have to take care of each other, and take care of the earth. Oh yes --and not to be afraid of the dark. So, as you read and look carefully at the illustrations, if you believe in Fairies, you may find the clues that will lead you to the treasure.

About the author (2004)

Michael Stadther has been thinking about treasure hunts since he was a boy, digging holes in his grandmother's yard looking for buried treasure. As a teen he read "Masquerade" by Kit Williams and dreamed that one day, he too, would write a story and hide a treasure.

After a successful career in banking software, he decided to put his efforts into creating a international treasure hunt that could engage millions of adults and children alike, providing adventure, fun and opportunity for everyone. He wanted the hunt to be accessible and encourage puzzle-solving, reading and exploring. It took him eight years to work out how to do it.

When he's not painting or dabbling in real estate, Mike studies with world-famous chess grand master Gregory Kaidanov. He also practices the 10-string Baroque guitar.
