wet or so thinks Twinkle Toes when she's shanghaied aboard the yacht
Ariel for a cruise to Canada along with her mother Dusty and
her cousin Miss Piggy. But then Twink learns of a mystery and the
quickest way to get home is to solve it. In her quest for knowledge,

begins as a delightful tale of sailing as seen from the perspective
of pet cats, but becomes a serious wake-up call alerting about the
dangers facing one of our most precious natural resources..."
