One morning while he was simply minding his own business and searching for food on the sea floor, Sebastian Starfish found himself hooked, dragged to the surface and thrown into a smelly bucket of bait. This began a long and anxious journey for him until, at last, he was reunited with his friends. Small children will enjoy identifying the different emotions on Sebastian’s ‘face’ from terror to surprise to, at last, real happiness when he was returned home.
