A seagull and a crab find friendship and compromise in this sweet and humorous story about the meaning of perfection.

The sky is blue, the sun is warm, the breeze is cool–it’s a perfect day for Seagull, perched on a rock in the sea. That is, until crabby Crab comes along and points out all of the day’s flaws! There’s a cloud in the sky, a smelly boat in the distance, and the rock that they’re sitting on is covered in barnacles.

In this sweet and funny story about finding happiness amidst flaws, Seagull and Crab learn that nothing is more perfect than spending time with friends.

Seagull is having a perfect day until Crab comes along. Crab is being crabby and keeps finding things to complain about. Seagull doesn’t let it get her down though.

A cute story about happiness and friendship. Seagull has a positive attitude and enjoys the day. Crab complains about everything. Crab’s negative attitude doesn’t make Seagull like him any less though. Lovely illustrations. Sweet and humorous.

I received a free digital copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
