The Berenstain Bears' Seashore Treasure


The story is as disappointing as the treasure itself.

The bears go to the seashore, stay in a house, and Papa Bear finds a treasure map in the house. He goes looking for treasure while Brother and Sister have fun. He looks like he is certainly not having a lot of fun looking for treasure. They find a bunch of shells. They talk about the shells. And there's a bunch of laughing gulls that laugh at them, 'Ha! Ha! Ha!” And then they go swimming and they take the shells back. The end.

Pretty boring. Not much of a story, and not much to say about it.

They found the “treasure of the sea.”

The best part: “'What is booty, Papa?' Asked Sister.”


Seashells are cool.
