The Uncorker of Ocean Bottles has no name, but a very important job. He delivers messages from bottles to their recipients. Some of the messages are sad, and some must be carried for quite some time before they find the receiver. However, most of the messages bring happiness, “for a letter can hold the treasure of a clam-hugged pearl.” He lives alone, along the sea with only one tree and a loyal cat who follows him on his travels.

One day , the Uncorker finds a bottle with an unusual message about an upcoming seaside party, but its unclear who the message is for ,or even who the message is from. He attempts to deliver the message, inadvertently letting multiple townspeople in on the invitation to the party. A surprise awaits the Uncorker (and the reader) when he arrives at the seaside party. The whimsical illustrations and heartfelt story-line make this a picture book to be remembered, and to be read and shared over and over again. This is one you’ll want to add to your library, as well as your home collection.
