Allen Pollensabout this book: Sammy Starfish rewards good deeds by taking deserving children on five undersea adventures. Five exciting stories in "Starfish Chronicles" present a mermaid, King Neptune, Davey Jones, pirates, and more.
It all began with Sammy Starfish's invitation to meet privately with King Neptune at Court. It was an enormous honor but also puzzling. What could the King want to talk about with a 'simple, little starfish,' like him? They met over lunch and dined mainly on seaweed, sea grasses, and plant roots.
"Sammy, I have a special mission for you," Neptune opened.
Did he hear right … a royal assignment for a rather small sea creature? Sammy didn't know what to say and just nodded.
Neptune continued. "I would like those who live above the sea … humans … to appreciate and respect our world. Hence, I have decided to introduce their young people to our Realm."
Sammy remained silent.
"I want to offer undersea adventure visits in recognition of positive behavior."
"In the way of a reward for a good deed," Sammy commented.
"Yes, Sammy, you are exactly right. I'll endow you with an ability to grant a Good Deed Reward, three wishes … each for use in an undersea adventure with you. You'll speak, and children will understand you, of course."
It was a bit much to take on, but Neptune helped Sammy. They figured out "the dried-out starfish on the beach," as a way to identify a deserving child. This is how Sammy meets Audrey in Episode One. She saves a drying out Sammy. An illustration shows her happily returning to her sand building as a voice behind her calls out, "For your kindness … you are granted three wishes."
