One day Ollie the otter loses the rock he likes to use to break open clams. Mr. Pelican offers him a shoe instead. Mr. Jellyfish offers him a top hat. Mr. Octopus gives him a scarf. The seahorses give him an oven mitt. Mr. Seal gives him a sweater vest. At home, Ali puts all these items in a pile and then finds his rock. He thanks all his friends for their help.
This book had so much potential. It went on a little long but I was hoping it was building into something exciting. After gathering up all those things, they need to have a purpose, preferably one with regard to finding the rock.
A two or three-year-old might enjoy this book but I think it falls short.
