Sealed With a Kiss by Beth Ferry is about an oblivious seal's first day at her new zoo. She assumes kisses for all are the way to go. Unfortunately, she carries a smelly sardine in her mouth so the kisses are pretty fishy. The alliterative text makes the animals’ various reactions even more humorous. When the snow leopard lets her know in no uncertain terms that her kisses are unwelcome the seal is crushed. The animals then realize they have been unfair and concoct an apology that leaves everyone smiling.
