Even Seagulls can have bad days. In this instance, there is Stanley Seagull. Stanley makes a friend one day. His new friend, Seymour, shows him delicious types of food in a big green truck. Seymour warns Stanley time isn't to be wasted. When it's time to go, it's time to go. Stanley must move quickly. However, Stanley doesn't move up and away from the green truck in time. In one sad day he will find himself far away from his ocean home. The story is delightful and sad too. Along the way Stanley meets another friend Walter. No new friend can make Stanley stop thinking about home. Will Stanley ever get back to his ocean home?
"Stanley wanted to get back to the beach, but how? Walter thought awhile and explained that a lot of gulls never made it back..."
