When Mr. Mellop finds a dusty old forgotten trunk in his attic, he smells adventure. Sure enough, the trunk contains a letter from a noble Mellop relative describing exactly where his ship carrying a chest of gold sank in 1765. Naturally, the Mellops intend to find the treasure. But treasure is not the only thing waiting for the intrepid pigs below the ocean's surface -- seahorses, a merpig, and an angry octopus are just a few of the surprises in store for the marvelous Mellops.About the Author:
