The Uncorker of Ocean Bottles

Repay kindness.

The uncorker had one job, but an important job, collecting and delivering the message bottles. The uncorker did it without fail every single day. He went to the length and breadth of the land to deliver messages. Rain or shine, he did it. And his delivery made most people happy. He also had a wish and hoped it would happen someday. One day, the uncorker found a message bottle but needed a recipient. He carried it everywhere but failed. What did the uncorker do with the message bottle?

We picked this book for its cover. Repayment of kindness is the storyline. The book will appeal to those who understand the joy of receiving snail mail. The illustrations are so reminiscent of the letter era.

Adults will treasure the postal era, and children will recognise the beauty of that era as well as a message of empathy in Michelle Cueva's beautifully illustrated The Uncorker of Ocean Bottles.
