"What should we do for fun?" asked Reg.
"I know!" said Burt. "We can go for a bug hunt! You love those, Keely."
"No, Burt," said Keely. "The bugs are getting ready for winter. We can't bother them. See, autumn ruins everything!"
"If we can't go on a bug hunt, maybe we can go on a treasure hunt!" said Shawna.
"That does sound exciting," agreed Keely. "But we don't have a treasure map."

Reg and Keely and Burt and Shawna are back, and ready for new adventures from hunting for treasure to sledding together and building fearsome creatures in the snow.
