Danni is a girl who loves to go fishing on the beach. She spends all day there and he even takes a scrummy picnic. But when she’s finished eating she has lots of rubbish she doesn’t know what to do with. It must be okay to leave it on the beach as lots of other people have left their rubbish behind. Or perhaps she could keep the beach tidy and throw the rubbish into the sea? Suddenly out of the depths emerges an octopus covered in rubbish! He is not too pleased! He tells Danni she needs to learn a lesson. Danni is then taken aback by a talking dolphin who pops out of the waves. The dolphin takes her on a very strange adventure beneath the waves where she discovers the horrible “Pollution” monster as he terrifies all the creatures in the world of the sea. Through his strange adventure Danni finds out just exactly what harm is caused by simply leaving your rubbish on the beach and discovers ways we can help to stop the harm we are all causing.
