Itty Bitty Hitty vanished through the Story Door on a magical small Tall Ship,
leaving Coco and the other Story Door Dolls to worry and fret. See LINK
She amazed Coco by coming home safe and sound, with a new friend, Lettie.
Lettie Bunny apparently rescued Itty on her great adventure!
Coco and Lettie sat down to listen to Itty’s story.
As soon as the Story Door shut behind Itty and the tiny Tall Ship, they whirled away through clouds and fog.
Itty was sure that the fog went on forever, and when she had finally given up hope,
Itty heard a rumbling roar!
The fog cleared, and there was a huge fiery Dragon!
Itty was terrified!
Luckily, a mighty Wizard strode out of the mists and sent the Dragon packing:
The Wizard tossed a small fireball that sent the Tiny Tall Ship soaring to a peaceful
garden in front of a very appealing door:
Itty knocked and knocked on the door, but no one answered.
Sadly, Itty sailed on until she came to another lovely garden,
where a beautiful Lady of the Earth was sleeping.
Itty whispered to her, hoping to wake her up just a little, without really disturbing her.
She leaned over the Lady of the Green Places and whispered again….
still, no answer…
Itty leaned sooooooooooo far out of the rigging of the Tiny Tall Ship that she tumbled
out and down,
until she landed
upside down, with a serious thump….
She thought about things for a moment and decided that a bucket might be a
better place to be than a Tiny Tall Ship that didn’t pay much attention to where
she wanted to be…..
‘Um?’, she mumbled.
There was no response.
A bee bumbled by to investigate.
‘Um and Hello to you, too, Little One!’, a soft, not-about- to-eat-or-sail-unexpectedly-away voice came close to the bucket.
‘And, what, might I ask, are you doing in my bucket, Little One?’
‘Standing on my head’.
‘Ah, yes…. well, let’s set that to rights…. my name is Lettice Bunny, but you can call me, Lettie’.
And, then, Itty burst into tears…..
‘I want to go home!’
‘Which is where?’
‘In the studio where the Story Door is!’
‘Well, that’s easily done! I was born in the studio by the Story Door!’
‘Yes, Little One, perhaps you were busy while all the carving was happening, come on now, just close your eyes….
The Story Door is just a small wish away…..’.
And! Then! Lettie and Itty were right there at the Story Door, and couldn’t be happier about it!
The funny thing about Itty’s great adventure was that it all seemed to happen at the Muttart Conservatory….
and Jim and I were right there!
You would think we would have noticed a tiny flying ship with wee Itty Bitty Hitty on it, wouldn’t you?
