Summary
"Kelpy the otter builds himself a boat. A boat that he loves, even though it is most definitely a homemade boat. Despite ridicule by other otters, pirates and sharks, Kelpy sails on. Then he comes across Blistering Blustering Butterbeard: a butterfly pirate in his own tiny boat. At first Kelpy is incredulous - he laughs. But Butterbeard's hurt feelings and tears turn Kelpy's disdain to empathy. In a surprising turn, Kelpy scuttles his beloved boat for the butterfly's benefit, indulging Butterbeard and starting an uproarious game that they play again and again and again. Story of an unlikely friendship between an underdog and someone even smaller and more vulnerable than him. Underlying message about following your dream and not letting ridicule, nay-saying or bullying discourage you or stand in the way of pursuing your passions and enjoying life Text is great to read aloud, featuring pleasing repetition, lots of humour, and some fun nautical and pirate terms"--Provided by publisher
