Story Summary

The only place Lily feels comfortable is at the swamp. But nothing prepares her for being rescued by Swamp Thing when she tumbles in trying to remove a piece of trash - nor finding Swamp Thing in her closet that afternoon with sorrowful eyes begging for her help in cleaning up the swamp. Lily elicits the help of classmates by forming a new environmental club but keeps her new friend, Swamp Thing, her special secret.
