When the little witch Crystal Milk stumbles upon a baby fluffaboo, a rabbit-like farm animal, she takes it upon herself to find its momma. As she makes her way through Farmer Jack’s land she encounters unicorn frogs, flying cows, and milk spiders. But a broken bridge may just make reuniting mother and baby impossible. Crystal will have to muster all her witchy smarts to solve a task this big.

CRYSTAL MILK AND THE BABY FLUFFABOO
Crystal Milk loved to SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE her curls as she skipped through the forest.
Every time she shook them, her curls giggled. It was the first spell she’d ever gotten right!
Crystal hoppity skipped through the forest, until she heard a very loud mewing sound.
Crystal peered behind a log, her curls chuckling.
A lonely little fluffaboo glanced from side to side.
“Why you’re just a baby. Have you lost your momma, little one?”
The fluffaboo nodded.
“Well, then I’ll help you find your momma!” The fluffaboo hopped onto her hand.
“Hmm,” she whispered.
A unicorn frog hopped across the path singing its froggy song.
“Oh excuse me, Mr. Frog,” Crystal called.
“RIBBET RIBB--Yes?” he stopped.
“Do you know where I can find the fluffaboos?”
The frog stuck out its tongue and SNAP, SNAP, SNAPPED up a fly.
“Delicious.” He licked his lips. “You can find the fluffaboos at Farmer Jack’s, along the path.”
“Thank you,” Crystal said as she and the fluffaboo made their way toward Farmer Jack’s.
“I’m sure one of the animals here must know where your momma is.”
Crystal gave her hair a shake and shimmy.
As they entered a hutch, some of the mini cows were busy laying eggs while others BUZZ BUZZ BUZZED around the room with their feathery wings.
“Hello,” Crystal said.
“Hello, little witch!” they replied.
A mini cow fluttered up to Crystal’s ear. “What are you doing here?”
“I’m trying to find this one’s mother. Have you seen her?”
