A message in a bottle holds the promise of surprise and wonder, as told in this enthralling picture book, exquisitely illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Erin E. Stead

The Uncorker of Ocean Bottles, who lives alone atop a hill, has a job of the utmost importance. It is his task to open any bottles found at sea and make sure that the messages are delivered. He loves his job, though he always wishes that one of the letters would someday be addressed to him. One day he opens a party invitation without a name attached, and as he devotes himself to solving the mystery of the intended recipient, he ends up finding something even more special: the possibility of new friends.
