Once upon a time, there was a little snapping turtle. His name was Little Mr. Turtle. His mamma's name was Mamma Mongoose, and since Little Mr. Turtle had recently misbehaved, he got a spanking. After he stole pie again and got in trouble, he said, "You're mean Mamma! I don't like you!"

That night, when he was in bed, he snuck some pie, and ran away. As he walked on the shore, on his journey to run away, he collected sea shells. The next night, he came upon a hut, and knocked on the door, looking for a warm bed, and a toad answered the door.

That night, when the little turtle was asleep, the toad snapped her fingers and looked at the turtles dream in her magic ball. The magic ball showed little turtle being spanked. Then it disappeared as Little Mr. Turtle woke up from his nightmare. The toad then asked," I can grant you one wish. What do you want it to be?" "Hmmm... Can you make my Mamma different?" the turtle asked. "Of course!" said the toad with silent evil laugh. Then she snapped her fingers, and a bit of green smoke came out of the tips of her fingers. "There you go!" laughed the toad.

"Ah! You're a Witch Toad!!! Wow.. Thank you!" said the turtle. Then, when the toad wasn't looking, the turtle grabbed the magic ball and ran off without the toad knowing a thing. On his way home, Little Mr. Turtle met a Dabble Duck. "Hello! I forgot my way home. Could you bring me to my Mamma Mongoose please?"

"Sorry little fellow, but I know who can! His name is Banded Armadillo. He knows everyone and everything! You can find him if you follow that seashell path," replied the duck. "Good day to you!" "Thanks!" said Little Mr. Turtle as he started his way down the seashell path.

Eventually, he found the Banded Armadillo who just said,"Your hut is just down the road. Follow the shore." "Okay! Thanks." said the turtle, as he knew Banded Armadillo knew everything and everyone. Once he got home, he found an odd looking Squirrel eating some nuts. "Who are you?" asked the turtle. "Why are you sitting on our lawn doing nothing?"
