The Lost Thing

A boy discovers a bizarre-looking creature while out collecting bottle tops at the beach. Realising it is lost, he tries to find out who owns it or where it belongs, but is met with indifference from everyone else, who barely notice its presence, each unwilling to entertain this uninivited interruption to their day-to-day lives. For reasons he does not explain, the boy empathises with the creature and sets out to find a 'place' for it.
