It's not a rug, it's an ocean! A child in a striped shirt invites an adult in a yellow hat to abandon their vacuum and join in their imaginative play. A phone call interrupts the game, but they're able to regain their momentum (and escape from sharks and storms). A glossary on the copyright page explains seafaring terms such as ahoy, batten the hatches, and doldrums.
