Chapter One

 

Today's the Day

 

Seymour woke up in a happy mood. He took a puddle bath. He did his morning stretches, nibbled his leafy greens, and drank a bit of dew.

 

Seymour looked out his window. He felt inspired, so he painted a few pictures Then he checked his calendar. "Oh goody," said Seymour. "My friends are visiting today."

 

He looked around his leafy home. "Uh-oh," he said. "I'd better hide my paintings."

 

Seymour hoped to be a great artist someday. But he felt shy about showing his work.

 

So he hid his puddle paintings under the sofa. He stashed his leaf prints behind a lamp. But how could he hide his big mud sculptures?

 

"Hmm," said Seymour. "I have an idea!"

 

He covered one sculpture with a tablecloth and a pot of flowers. He covered the other one with a hat. Seymour oozed back to see how it looked.

 

"I hope no one notices," he said.

 

Ding dong.

 

"Wow," said Seymour. "My friends are here."

 

Seymour chatted with Roly Poly, Lady Bug, and Cricket. They had a lovely time until a big gust of wind blew in.

Excerpts

Seymour woke up in a happy mood. He took a puddle bath. He did his morning stretches, nibbled his leafy greens, and drank a bit of dew.

Seymour looked out his window. He felt inspired, so he painted a few pictures. Then he checked his calendar. “Oh goody,” said Seymour. “My friends are coming over today.”

He looked around his leafy home. “Uh-oh,” he said. “I’d better hide my paintings.”

Seymour hoped to be a great artist someday. But he felt shy about showing his work.

So he gathered his brushes. He hid his puddle paintings under the sofa. He stashed his leaf prints behind a lamp. But how could he hide his big mud sculptures?

“Hmm,” said Seymour. “I have an idea…”

He covered one sculpture with a tablecloth and a vase of flowers. He covered the other one with a hat. Seymour oozed back to see how it looked.

“I hope no one notices,” he said.
