Barroom and Burp disrupt the peace and quiet of Flossie Q Fish. She questions a seahorse and an otter if they heard the moon burp or whale fart noise. She is sent to BB, the blue whale. Her whale info convinces her it is the right thing to do. Devastated by BB's laughter she goes home. There she discovers she doesn't “see what's around her, waiting to be seen.”
