It is raining out, and Ebb has nothing to do. She barks to get Flo, Flo's mother, or the ducks to play with her; but they are all too busy. Finally she heads outside and finds a baby seal. They have fun together, splashing and playing in the waves. But, when it is time for Ebb to go home, the baby seal follows and will not turn back. Ebb gets the attention of Flo and her mother, and together they solve the problem.
This was a delightful book. The beautiful muted illustrations are perfect for the seaside. The story is fun, and the text has good rythme. I love Jane Simmons' books, and always prefer to read books that are written and illustrated by the same person. Such talent and ability!
