 Bags of trouble for Valeskia Maleskial

 This is a children’s story set along the central coast of Queensland in a lovely rock pool called the Basin which really does exist and is a natural seaside swimming pool to hundreds of different species of fish.

Valeskia Maleskia is a shy and vain butterfly fish. Bart Ma Lart is a stonefish and Valeskia’s grumpy and loyal friend. 

One day four siblings come down to the beach for a swim.

They bring all their goodies to eat and prepare themselves for a morning of swimming and snorkelling. One of the children accidentally drops a plastic bag into the water and Valeskia Maleskia, being very inquisitive decides to investigate.

What follows is a story of joy, fear and potential tragedy. This story is written to hopefully enlighten children about our environment and why we must continue to keep our planet clean.
