Story Summary

“The outdoors smelled like cotton candy mixed with the fresh scent of pillowcases dried on a clothesline.” It was clearly fluffle-picking time, and Charlotte’s dad thought it could be the best crop in six years. Thousands of stuffed bears, blue whales, monkeys, and other critters just ripe for the picking from the fluffle trees and not a rotten fluffle in sight. Well, maybe one, but Charlotte’s dad didn’t need to know about the addition of a three-eyed bunny to her nighttime menagerie.
