The family in this children's book loves collecting shells. When the narrator comes upon a pile of beautiful ones she suspicions as having been abandoned by her brother she tells herself "finder's keeper's". After she discovers that she could "hear" the ocean inside, she realizes that she doesn't need to hoard her brother's shells to herself. 
Me and my granddaughter love the pictures, each one featuring a shell in some part of the scene and a handmade doll (the author made each figure) to help tell the story, though my daughter thought the book was "creepy".
