The Gull That Lost the Sea - Smith

Guliver is the sweetest looking gull, he lives in a nest in the rocks under a lighthouse. He likes to catch fish and he takes handouts from the fishermen too. One day though a great storm blows poor Guliver away from his home and he finds himself no where near his nest in the rocks, and he definitely doesn't see his lighthouse. He circles the land until...wait...what is that he sees, it looks like his lighthouse from way up in the sky. He flies down for a closer look and perches on an old fashion barber signpost all day. The barber notices him and at the end of the day he is able to catch Guliver and then he takes him back to the ocean where he is greeted by his real lighthouse. I just love this story, it is so sweet and I love a good home coming.
