The Sea loves her family and everyone in it—the fish, the star fish, the turtles, the worms—and her family loves her back. The only problem is . . . they are so loud! So, the Sea takes a vacation to clear her head and enjoy some peace and quiet. In her absence the fish run amock, loving their newfound freedom, but they soon realize that their favorite part of the day is missing: there’s no one to read them a bedtime story. Enter a very naughty cat with ill intentions who promises to read to them. Once the sea animals realize their mistake, their tears bring back their mother and she promises to teach them to read so they can always enjoy a bedtime story.
