Why is Petey the Pelican so grumpy? is Book 5 in the Sasha and Friends collection and is a great story about learning self-worth with the help of a supportive community. Petey is a grumpy pelican who blames everyone else for his lack of friends, he is a member of a thriving and diverse community of birds, crabs and fish but is only ever looking out for himself and is very deceptive about how he sneaks his food. Even with Petey's self-centred view of the world, his community still includes him in all of their activities, however, when Petey is caught in a dilemma, Seamore and Sasha gently help him learn about sharing and telling the truth.
The Sasha and Friends series introduces readers to wildlife and conservation issues as part of interesting stories, but most of all, it builds an interest in the characters by blending actual species facts with the character traits. The stories in this series also showcase issues such as competition versus cooperation, kindness versus rivalry and disability versus ability and always encourages the reader to relate to a sense of community and growing through being challenged.
