Finds A Shoe
Great-Nana is an old caterpillar
with white hair and two chins. She lives "upstairs" on a leaf in a run-down
shoe with her three nephews, Hawkins, Loupin and Llewelyn O'Flynnes.
Great-Nana wants to move to a new shoe, preferably a red shoe, near a lake
or a pond. This is a story about their adventurous trip in their car, Effie.
Great-Nana gets lost, then they find themselves almost stuck in the lime
jelly forest, and when they expect to find the karms, who are the keepers of
directions, they find the karms are not there. Great-Nana finally gets to
the pond and finds her red shoe, but her adventure is not over.

"Take a look down this street, not a
nice shoe in sight.
How this neighborhood's changed, and almost overnight,"
said great-nana upstairs with white hair and two chins
to Hawkins and Loupin
and Llewelyn O'Flynnes.
