Mrs. Cockle, a ballon peddler, lives with her cat, Peter, until Peter runs off in search of fresh fish. Saddened by Peter's loss, Mrs. Cockle decides to go on an adventure one windy day by holding on to her balloons while a big gust of wind takes her out to sea, only to let her down in a fisherman's boat where she is lovingly greeted by Peter.
