The Tigers go outside for a breakfast of oatmeal and fresh blueberries. Grandpere tells Daniel they are going on a treasure hunt on Tiger Island.

With everyone aboard Grandpere's boat, they set sail for Tiger Island where Daniel and Grandpere usea a map to find the secret treasure. While they search, Daniel make-believes that a tree is his house.
