She came upon a rock, covered in thick moss and sitting there propped up against the rock was a book. It was an odd book, it was round, with seamless bindings...no author...just a title...It was wee and tiny, almost as small as a baby hedgehog.
Gretta's nose began to twitch. This happened whenever she was knocking on her noggin trying to get thoughts out...Should I peek? Should I leave it behind? Should I touch it? What if and why? With all the brain power she could muster she popped a good and healthy blueberry in her mouth and decided.....I won't peek yet. She looked north and south and up and down and behind and over and under and nowhere. She reached for her bonnet and as quick as a ladybug in flight she picked up the book and stuck it under her bonnet! Safe and sound...onward she scampered down the path to Nowhere.
Up the stone steps she went...she thought she heard a cough...cough, cough, sputter and sput and ahhhh...chooo!
What was that? Eeeekkkk...Gretta dove into the bushes. The wee little book almost fell out! All of a sudden a rock flew through the air and hit the pond with a splash! Then another and another...
Before she knew it, the little pond was filling with rocks and then she heard a sound like a branch breaking...was that a bear? Or a Raccoon or a mouse or a rat? She peeked around the big fern and saw a rabbits tail wiggling...was that Paisley Bunny playing hide and seek or was Gretta in danger?
