Quick review.

Review: 

Peatree fish overhears some other fish talking about a treasure, so she goes on this long trip to find it and it turns out the whole thing is a hoax set up by her friends to show her that she can do anything if she tries, despite not showing any signs of lacking confidence.

Message: 

You can do anything if you put your mind to it. Or, it's okay to lie to your friends if you think it will build their confidence.

Quick review.

Review: 

Not very well written, but surprisingly not that bad of a story. There are overweight 14 year old girls, and perhaps their lives would improve if they lost weight.

Message: 

Overweight 14-year-olds need to diet.

Quick review.

Review: 

Lars the polar bear and Robby the seal are friends. The other polar bears get mad because polar bears eat seals, but they set up a racket where the seals will catch fish for the polar bears in exchange for their lives. Then a giant ship comes and sucks up all the fish and also the seals and polar bears, and Lars lures it into crashing into an iceberg and sinking.

Message: 

Animals are intelligent, but still eat each other. Industrialized society is evil.

James is a jerk and breaks his train cars, and they need a bootlace to fix it, and the only guy with a bootlace doesn't want to give it to them, so instead of blaming the train company they blame that guy.
