Salty Seas and His Heroic Friends by Lynda Wurster Deniger is an inspiring tale of courage and friendship.
Shrimp season is underway and after the Blessing of the Fleet ceremony Salty Seas, Captain Charley and their friends Patti Pelican, Dottie Dolphin and Sammy Seagull set out to catch shrimp. Captain Charley uses his green nets to skim shrimp from the sea's surface as Salty circles in the water. Soon Captain Charley signals that it's time to pull in the nets. Salty is anxious to see what treasures they pulled from the sea today. But, today's shrimping adventure doesn't goes as planned and when a wave hits the boat Captain Charley is knocked overboard. Salty, who was set on autopilot, was unaware that Captain Charley was in danger. Acting quickly, Dottie, Patti and Sammy take action. Dottie swims toward Captain Charley to protect him from sharks as Patti and Sammy fly after Salty. Will they reach Salty in time so he can return for Captain Charley?
Paulette Ferguson vividly captures each scene through her beautiful illustrations.
Salty Seas and His Heroic Friends demonstrates how important it is for people, and in this case animals, to work together to help others.
