Story Summary

Cat thinks her new neighbor, Mrs. Becker, is really weird when she sees her hauling rocks and dirt into her house a month before Christmas. But when Cat's mom asks her to take Mrs. Becker some fresh cookies, Cat discovers a wonderful and kind woman that has a perfectly good reason for bringing bushels of dirt into her home.
