The Treasure-Hunt Friends Discover Autistic Trends is the fourth book in author Brenda Darnley Martin's Treasure-Hunt Fish picture-book series, promoting positive life lessons to children.
In this book, Freddie, Hector, and Tish meet Adam, who is autistic, when they visit their friend, the "Carrie Lee," a sunken ship in Old Tampa Bay. Despite the fact that Adam cannot speak, they have a wonderful time playing together, become fast friends, and decide that they will regularly include him in their daily adventures.
The message of this book, like the others in the Treasure-Hunt Fish picture-book series, is that life's greatest treasures are friendship, diversity and positive self-esteem.
Understanding and including autistic children is of tremendous importance to both the author and the illustrator, who have close family members with the disease. Their hope is that this book will help young non-autistic children develop tolerance and acceptance of those who are.

About the Author
It was during her stint as a member of the theatre-staff at The Florida Aquarium, that Brenda became enthralled with the flounder and its ability to "hide in plain sight." That introduction served as the inspirational spark for the first book in her Treasure-Hunt Fish children's picture-book series, featuring the positive life lessons of three young fish living in Old Tampa Bay.
