"Sigrid Tries To Please" is a story written by Greg Wetzel.
The quarter of the sun was setting as the tugboats came to the Great Ocean Dock after a long day's work. They were about to start "Story Telling Time," when the Dispatcher turned to face them. "Before you begin your fun evening activities," he said kindly, "I'd like to introduce you to our new member of the Great Ocean Tug and Salvage Company." The tugboats then immediately remembered how a few days ago a new dock next to Theodore and Hank's had been completed. They all heard two familiar honks of a horn. "Sigrid," said the tugs in unison. They were all very surprised. "Welcome Sigrid to your new home," greeted the Dispatcher warmly. "Thank you Mr. Dispatcher," she said cheerfully. Then the Dispatcher turned away, to indicate that he was finished saying his announcement. "What a surprise," said Emily. "But why are you joining us?" "You see, I don't really have too much work to do," explained Sigrid. "So I spoke with the Harbour Master, and after a few months of preparations and the building of the new dock, I was able to join your company." "Well, we're very happy to be working with you more often," said George cheerfully. "And hang out with you more too," added Emily.
The next morning the tugboats and Sigrid lined up before the Dispatcher for the "Morning Work Meeting." The Dispatcher turned to face them all. "Good morning everybody. I hope you all slept well. Now, here's your first jobs for the day," he said proudly. "Foduck, you and Hank will be replacing bumpers." The two tugs blew their horns twice to say "yes." "Theodore, you're to work with Rebecca and help bring up some old artifacts found just near 'Shipwreck Rock.' Please take Shelburne with you." Then he turned to Emily and George.
