Leaving his tiny best friend and housemate Herbie the white mouse behind, he begins his journey to save his French Cousin Percy. He is caught in a thunderstorm, tumbles from the sky and has a brief meeting with Harry the Whale.

When a thunderstorm booms in the distance, Norman Mail Pigeon arrives with a sweetly-scented invitation addressed to Eric Seagull, Rock-Face Nest, at St. Mary’s Bay, Brixham, in not-so-sunny South Devon, England, and the herring gull finds himself in all sorts of bother. Leaving his small best friend and housemate Herbie the white mouse behind, he zooms off to Fishcombe Cove to visit Fairy Bluebelle. He avoids a sky disaster and has a brief meeting with cave spider Charlie Longlegs. Magic tickles appear, and Fairy Bluebelle finally makes her wish. Eric can’t fly, sleeps beneath the stars on the beach, and misses his deadline to write about his adventures for The Brixham Times newspaper!
