Grumpy George doesn't want friends - until he meets a funny little seal called Pebble . . . George the dog loves living alone on his island. He likes to do everything his own way, and friends would just ruin things. But one day a cheerful little seal wiggles up to him. Her name is Pebble, and she's determined to be George's friend, whether he likes it or not. George is quiet and grumpy. Pebble is lively and funny. Can this odd couple ever become friends?
