Read an Excerpt!
One day, Stanley meets a new friend, Seymour, who shows him the ropes in attaining "easy" and tasty tidbits from a big green truck. Most importantly, Seymour tells Stanley that he must move quickly when feasting from the truck.
However, Stanley caught up in his feeding frenzy does not heed Seymour's advise and ends up in a stinky landfill. He longs for the refreshing Atlantic beach he called home.
While at the landfill, he met another gull, Walter, who had become accustomed to living there. He was very distraught when Walter told him he was at least 100 miles from home. Missing his family, he hoped that his new-found friend could lead him home.
This adventurous read is the perfect conversation starter with your child in learning to be better listeners and doing what they are told. The expressions of the watercolor illustrations are eye-catching cute.
