Two Wild and Crazy Guys (continued):

Wendy Woodpecker has settled in quite nicely, in fact, she wonders how she got so lucky as to find such a perfect new home. But there is something nagging at her. While she was at the Pet Hatchery waiting for her "assignment" she overheard the staff talking about a rude and unruly woodpecker that kept escaping, and lamenting that finding a forever home for him was going to be a real problem.

Well, Wendy would never admit this to anyone...maybe not even herself, but she is quite attracted to the "bad boys". Since she arrived at her new home, she just can't get him out of her mind and wonders where he might have gotten to. She really, really wants to meet him. And then she has an idea

Approaching her new sisters Franny Fairy and Betsy Butterfly, Wendy asks them if they would like to "go on an adventure" with her. "Just a quick one", she adds, "so we won't get into any trouble". "Maybe under the guise of a "picnic lunch". Betsy and Franny have a quick discussion, and agree it would be ok, maybe even fun!

Wendy, now quite excited at the prospect of maybe tracking down the "renegade" woodpecker, packs a small Sack of Sunflower seeds for her lunch. Betsy siphons a small vial of nectar "to go", and Franny Fairy, who will eat most anything, as long as it's not too big, packs herself a Sack of dried fruit...raisins and cranberries.

"We're ready!", pipe Franny and Betsy in unison. "How about you, Wendy"? "You betcha!", says Wendy. And with that, the three girls flit off into the Elvyn Forest.

Two Wild and Crazy Guys (continued):

Betsy Butterfly, Franny Fairy, and Wendy Woodpecker decide to have their lunch beneath the Overgrown Column. This is one of Betsy's favorite "hang outs" as there is such an abundance of wonderful nectar to choose from. She tries not to go there TOO often, as she is trying to watch her weight. She enjoys being svelte, since it puts much less stress on her wings when flying.

As they enjoy their lunch amid the intoxicating aromas wafting from the Column, before you know it, the three girls are fast asleep.

Betsy has lost all track of time while dreaming pleasant dreams, but suddenly senses something amiss. She opens one Eye. And sure enough, her fears are confirmed, for there in front of them stands Grimdahl Tiger with arms crossed and a scowl on his face, but he says nothing. Betsy quickly nudges Franny and Wendy awake so they can all "face the music" together.

But, all Grim says is, "You girls are late for dinner. And I hope you have a good excuse."

Now Wendy never told the others just what the "adventure" was, and she really doesn't know Grimdahl very well yet, but it's clearly on her to tell Grim "the excuse". Blushing profusely (her cheeks are now the color of her top feathers), Wendy explains that they were looking for a new Woodpecker that is rumored to be in town, a rowdy male that she wants to meet as he sounds intriguing to her. "Plus", Wendy adds, "I don't know any other Woodpeckers yet!"

Grimdahl Tiger rolls his Eyes, and addressing Wendy says, "You should have asked me Wendy. Grapevine has it that he is living with Miss Dot, a good friend of ours. Perhaps she will let him tag along to the next exercise class, and you can meet him then. I hear his name is "Woody". And then, Grim's face softens, the girls breath a sigh of relief, and all flit up onto his shoulders for a free lift home.

"He's Back! All Hallows Jack is back! At the Burnt Tree and he has a dude with him!" Pepito calls excitedly.

"The dude called himself the Ghost Hunter!!! And he's way cool!" carolled Alvin Penguin. "He has this awwesoommme gun! With lights and - - and a backpack - - and it doesn't shoot bullets. It shoots ghost traps!" Alvin's voice dropped to a whisper on the last words.

"Yeah!" Pepito quickly chimed in. "Seems someone opened a Dark Portal into his world and lots of ghosts escaped into Midnight Castle. He has been searching & searching but the naughty ghosts have scattered his ghost traps all over the place. So he can't catch them. Can we help him. pleeease?" Pepito pleads.

"All Hallows Jack has offered candy as a reward for finding the traps. I want the Black Candy Lollipop! Pleassse??" Alvin asks.

"Okay!" I say "But you must go in twos or threes. No-one goes alone. In case these ghosts appear."

The pets race off. The Lure of Adventure calling them.
Heather Hippo telephones the Windmill to see if Herbie Hippo will go with her to the Port. They had a good time there last time so she is hoping he will say "yes".
Petunia Pig jumps from one trotter to the other waiting anxiously for Heather to finish her call. She wants to ring Miss Linet's place to see if Corky Pig will go with her to the Tree Top Area in the Elvin Forest.
Hoppy Tiger with his trusty sidekick, Mia Meow gather their backpacks and head to Town.
The Bunnies, lead by Brodie Bunny, head for the Castle Vicinity.
Maya Elephant watches the pets. Her expression forlorn until....... "Hey! Maya want to come with us," calls Cerise Butterfly from her perch atop Pedro Pony's head. Maya thunders after Pedro, trumpeting so loudly that we have to cover our ears.
Cora Crocodile and Sybil Sea Serpent retreat to the lagoon. They will keep a watch here at home.
Happy Turtle is joining the hunt. He decides to don his Sun Wings and go visit Tina Turtle at the Shallow Waters. Perhaps Tina & Greta Gator will help him search the Pond of Life.
The other pets form their groups and set out.

Woody watches curiously & sees an opportunity for mayhem. Woo-Ha-ha! .....

Two Wild and Crazy Guys (continued):

Harry Hedgehog recieves an early morning Telephone call, from Cuddles Panda, of all things! Cuddles lowers his voice, and proceeds to tell Harry that something seems to be amiss in Town, and that he thought he should give Harry a call so the Angels can investigate. The Townsfolk seem both excited and unhappy at the same time, and are just not behaving normally. Cuddles continues, "At least it looks that way to me."

Harry says, "Hm, Cuddles. This does sound like a job for the Angels! And we need to get right on it! Thanks so much for calling. "What's that, Cuddles? Oh, yes of course I will tell Grimdahl Tiger you said "Hi"."

Harry Telephones Homer Hedgehog, who will Telephone Alfie Hedgehog, and so on. "Emergency meeting at Salty's! Pronto!" passes from one Hedgehog to the next. Harry grabs a Strawberry cream Cheese Croissant and bounds out of the house, racing lickety-split for Salty's. Of course Homer Telephones Otis Cat (aka Dude Hedgehog) first, before he Telephones Alfie Hedgehog. Otis grabs his Sack with his "dude duds", climbs out the window and heads to meet Homer at their usual meeting place.

Once the Angels are all gathered behind Salty's Tavern, Harry informs them of his "mysterious Telephone call from Cuddles Panda." Passing out Emerald Tablets and Fountain Pens, Harry instructs the Angels to casually interview the residents in and around Midnight Castle to see if they can come up with anything. Harry, Homer and Dude Hedgehog will take the Town, as that is where Cuddles noticed the odd behavior. Then they will check out the Castle Vicinity. Alfie and Big Bill Hedgehog will go to Cloud City and then the Elvyn Forest. Charlie and Freddy Hedgehog will go to the Harbor and surrounding area. (No one will be going to the Dark Tower.) "Be covert, men!, says Harry. Approach residents cautiously, and casually say things like "Good Morning", and "How are you?" to get them talking. Sooner or later someone will spill the beans! "Plus, we have no idea yet if this could turn into a dangerous mission. Get all the information you can, from everyone you can, and write it all down. We meet back at Salty's at High Noon!"

After a quick high five all around, the Angels head off in varying directions just as Harry instructed. This was not meant to be a competition, but each of the Angels is thinking to himself that HE wants to be the one to "get the scoop".

With a flutter of his wings, Woody Woodpecker flies up to Happy Turtle. With his Sun Wings extended and using a sweeping motion with his flippers, Happy is gliding quickly towards the Pond of Life.

"Where's we going, man? Huh! Huh!" questions Woody.

"I don't know where you are going but I am going to the Elvin Forest to see a friend," replied Happy.

"Oh, good! I'll invite myself along," said Woody. With that he flew up and perched on Happy's shell.

"Get off! Go away!" gritted out Happy. The only reply was Woody's maniacal laugh.

At the Pond of Life, Happy greeted Tina Turtle and Greta Gator at the Shallow Waters. He explained about the ghost traps and asked if they would like to help him search for some. Before they could answer Woody swooped on Greta's pink bow. Pulling it off, he dropped it in the water with a "Woo - Ha-Ha!"

Greta was so upset that she started to cry. "Woo - Ha- Ha! Crocodile tears!" called Woody. Tina told Greta "Not to worry that Miss Linet would fix her bow up for her".

Happy was about to shout at Woody when Grimdahl Tiger walked past. Seeing Greta upset, he stopped to find out why. Woody spotted the pretty female woodpecker on the big fella's shoulder. Gliding over, he said "Ditch the big guy and come get to know me better," Woody trailed off as two tiger eyes glared at him. Flitting up to an overhead branch, Woodpecker spread his wings to show off his lovely feathers to the pretty little bird and gave his laugh "Woo- ha- Ha!".

Wendy Woodpecker sighed and gazed at Woody. Grimdahl growled softly "Wendy, we are going home". Wendy took one last look and then forlornly nodded. After saying goodbye to Happy, Greta and Tina joined Grim.

Happy was most unhappy so he was thinking of going back home when .................

Happy Turtle waves goodbye to Tina Turtle & Greta Gator. "Might as well go home," he mutters to himself. Suddenly a red ghostly form comes floating past and drops something into the Tree Hole.

"*^*###8!" swears the rabbit with a swelling on his head. He tosses the grey ball out of the nest he and the family have in the Tree Hole.

Happy goes to investigate and finds several grey balls on the ground at the base of the tree. He hasn't seen these things before and hopes they are the ghost traps he was searching for. Scooping them up, Happy notices a rusty chest in the bole of the tree. He picks that up as well. Time to go to All Hallows Jack and see if these grey balls are the traps. Happy spreads his Sun Wings and takes to the sky.

Meanwhile Woody Woodpecker has watched the departure of the pretty female woodpecker. Silently he flutters through the trees following them until he spies the little cottage at the edge of the Elvyn Forest. Satisfied he knows where the little bird lives, he turns to follow Happy Turtle. "Ah yes!" he thinks to himself. "My Card of Destiny is certainly coming up trumps for me. Let the plotting begin!"

Heather Hippo telephones Herbie Hippo and asks if he wants to come along on a ghost traps hunting expedition. Herbie is intrigued as he hadn't heard about the traps so he readily agrees. They arrange to meet at the Overturned Boat at the Port.

****************************************************************

Ding Bat is cosy living in the Medicine Cabinet in the Laboratory. Often a fly would land so Ding had plenty to eat. The only worry is the crazy black-haired witch who lives in the Laboratory - Arabella Scales is her name, Ding thinks. At the moment, she is stirring something in the Alchemic Converter and muttering "If that gnome Potionmant the Alchemist can give Birth to Goo, I can do better!"

Today there is an extra person in the Laboratory. Arabella has invited the Lightning Thrower over. She directs him to throw Lightning Bolts at the Alchemic Converter. "Power! I need more power!" she shouts. The Lightning Thrower starts to throw Lightning Bolts one after the other. Some miss their target. One hits Ding. It was enough to send Ding Bat flying from his home. When a second bolt hits Ding, he flew through an opening in the wall. Frightened he kept going - through an opening in the next room. Then he hits something soft . The more he struggles to free himself, the more the cloth folds around him. And eeeeK! there is a skull looking at him.

Skull Pete notices someone is playing with his flag - his beloved Jolly Roger. He climbs up to investigate. His anger abates when he sees the tiny bat caught in his flag. Ding quickly covers his face with his leathery wings when he sees the human. He is terrified.

Carefully Skull Pete carries the bat over to the Light House Keeper to ask what he should do with it. "The Sanctuary people will help," said the Keeper as he takes a pull on his pipe. Skull Pete looks around to see if he can spot anyone from the Sanctuary.

As Harry's Angels gather back at Salty's, Harry asks Salty if he would mind fixing them a quick lunch so they can eat while they compare Notes. "Nothing complicated", says Harry. "Maybe just some grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Pickles on the side?" Salty groans, (but just for show), and gets to work on the Sandwiches for his friends.

Chomping on their Sandwiches, one by one the Angels read off their Notes. And believe it or not, the Notes match up! It seems the residents in all areas are happy because All Hallow's Jack had come back this year with a Ghost adventure and LOTS of Candy. But, now they are depressed because there has been no sign of Santa Claus or his Elves. And it's getting VERY close to Christmas! Harry gets out his tattered "List of Missing" and carefully Pens, "Santa Claus" and "Unknown number of Elves".

Well, all the Notes do match...with one exception. And that of course would be "Dude" Hedgehog. Dude is pretty sure there is more to it than that.

Otis Cat, aka Dude Hedgehog, knows deep down that HE's gotten the real Scoop. "Dude" stands and clears his throat. Harry looks up and says, "Something on your mind, Dude? Go ahead, we're all ears." Everyone looks at Dude.

"Well", says Dude, "I agree with everything everyone said, as I heard the same thing myself. But there was one very talkative Monkey I encountered. He was wearing a Santa Hat in anxious anticipation, and wasn't afraid to speak up and spill ALL the beans!" "It seems it's really about Christmas itself, not just Santa and the Elves, but at Midnight Castle, ALL of Christmas comes along with them. The holiday adventures. The decorations. The Christmas Cards. The Snowflakes. The Spirit of Christmas. And of great concern is the Christmas Tree. The residents have been working hard all year long to collect Gifts to give and receive beneath the Tree to say thank you to their friends for all they do for them day in and day out. But the Tree is not accessible, and there has been no news. Not a peep. And the days tick by, and Christmas gets ever closer. So, it's not just that Santa and the Elves are missing, it's that ALL of Christmas is missing from Midnight Castle! Dude blushes, and says, "Thank you." as he plops back into his seat.

Harry Hedgehog starts a new list titled "Christmas", and scribbles furiously until he has it all down. This is serious. Very serious. Santa missing. Elves missing. And all of Christmas itself missing!!

Harry stands and addresses the Angels. "This is indeed an urgent mission for the Angels! The residents need our help to find Christmas! And when we do, I'm betting we will also find Santa and the missing Elves. Gear up, Angels. Midnight tonight. Bring lots of supplies. This mission lasts until we find every single thing on this Christmas list!!"

Heather Hippo arrives at the Overturned Boat at the Port to find Herbie Hippo already there. He is listening to Mother Turtle complaining about floating wraiths dumping grey balls in her nest. Some have hit her hatchling's shells. Heather & Herbie gather up the grey balls & put them in their backpacks. In appreciation, Mother Turtle hands Heather a silver chest.

Suddenly a shimmering blue light appears beside the Overturned Boat. It is a lovely mermaid. She hands Herbie a Floating Barrel full of ghost traps that she and her friends have collected from the sea floor. With a flick of her tail, she is gone.

Heather & Herbie are about to head home when Skull Pete sees them & hurries over to them. Carefully opening his hands he shows Heather & Herbie the bat. "Oh, look!" says Heather as she turns to Herbie. "He's so tiny." Ding Bat lowers his wings when he hears the gentle voice. Then seeing all the other faces, he quickly covers his face. Heather looks at Herbie and sighs. Another pet for Miss Dot.

Heather & Herbie hurry to All Hallows Jack & the Ghost Hunter at the Castle Vicinity. They hand over the traps and report the sightings of the ghosts. Taking the ghost traps, the Ghost Hunter is filled with a sense of urgency. Time is running out. Winter will soon be here and that will make hunting the ghosts impossible. He dashes off. All Hallows Jack hands Heather & Herbie a toffee apple each. The pair head home to show Miss Dot the latest addition to the family.

Meanwhile several of the pets head to Town. They spread out so they can cover a big area quickly.

Perdita Pegasus & Ryia Reindeer enter Kaley's Fancy Goods. They ask Kaley if she has seen any strange objects that may be traps. Pointing to a bundle of grey balls beside the Cash Register, Kaley wondered if those things were what the pair were looking for. She explained that some youngsters collected them in the City Square & gave them to Kaley. Deciding it was a possibility, Perdita & Ryia load the balls into their packs. They thanked Kaley & went to leave the shop. That was when Ryia's hoof went through a hole in the floor of the shop. Apologising profusely because she keeps forgetting to get the gnome builders in to repair the floor, Kaley hands Perdita a silver chest and Ryia a gold chest for any injuries or distress that the accident had caused. Perdita & Ryia head to the Castle Vicinity and their reward from All Hallows Jack.

Pup Puppy & Itchi Woolly-Paw head up to the City Cemetery. Itchi is not sure he likes the cemetery. It is dank. It is cold and there is a mist everywhere. Suddenly a red ghost came out of the mist. It hit Itchi in the head as it floated past. Terrified, both Itchi & Pup raced to the Warden's Hut. Augie Doggie (who lives in the Warden's Hut) got Pup & Itchi a soothing cup of coffee & some biscuits. Pup tells Augie about the ghost traps. Augie gives Pup a pot full of traps that he has collected in the cemetery. Giving a sigh of relief that they don't have to search the cemetery, the pair head off to the Castle Vicinity.

Mandy Manticore & Ursula Bear go to the Chapel. Valeria tells the girls that there have been many ghosts popping into the Chapel. But as Valeria used to be a ghost once herself, she didn't worry about the intruders. The angels at the Grand Altar, however, are not so blasé. The ghosts have been tossing grey balls at the angels. Now there are many traps on the altar. Mandy & Ursula quickly clean up. Thankful, the angel hands Mandy a gold chest while the other angel hands Ursula a rusty chest that is full of coins.

Hoppy Tiger and Mia Meow look around the Ancient Park. It is dark & cold. Hoppy knows Christmas is coming but there is no sign of any preparations here. Where are the Christmas decorations? The lights? Sighing, Hoppy turns his mind back to the task at hand - finding ghost traps. Checking in the Mystic Fountain, Hoppy finds several but he has to dip his paw in a long way as they are on the bottom of the fountain. Mia didn't want to get wet so she went over to ask the statues on the Headstone if they had seen any. Suddenly a grey ball came flying over to the Headstone - tossed by a bat in the Broken Statue. The bats are quite upset by the ghosts dropping the balls in their living space. Mia gathers up the traps and a silver chest. Hoppy checks the reeds on the banks of the Overgrown Pond. He finds two plus a silver chest. He decides, if any traps have landed in the pond they can stay there as he has had enough of being wet. Hoppy & Mia head to the Castle Vicinity to give the Ghost Hunter the traps.

Puff the Rainbow Dragon and Rusty the Fire Dragon went through a door on the left of the City Square. They found themselves at the Metro Station. It was noisy. People and gnomes were milling around laughing and talking. The Mechanical Semaphore started flashing. It was too much for the pair who dashed into a tunnel. Then they heard a train whistle and saw a bright light behind them. They flew as fast as they could until they reached open space at the Far Metro Station. The Passenger Car was right behind them and pulled into the station amid a lot of noise. Seeking a quieter place, the pair headed over to some large doors. Entering they found the Residential District. However it was not quiet here. A blue ghost was throwing ghost traps at the Founder's Face. Some dropped into the Fiery Furnace where they exploded with a bang! Puff & Rusty dashed through the large hole in the wall into the Limb Entrance. It was quiet here. Flying over the large ship impaled by the huge tree, they saw one of the Root Faces blowing smoke rings. Now this was their kind of thing. So they happily went to talk to the beings.

At the Root Faces, Puff the Rainbow Dragon and Rusty the Fire Dragon asked the fairy if she knew of any ghost traps. She replied "Yes! She had collected them and put them in the Statue Crack." Thanking her, the duo investigated the Statue Crack and gathered up all the traps. They also found 2 silver chests - one for each of them. Pleased the pair made a very cautious return trip to the City Square. They then headed to the Castle Vicinity and All Hallows Jack.

A small group of pets went to Cloud City.

Pedro Pony and Cerise Butterfly took Maya Elephant to the Craftsman District to visit Rocky Racoon at the Gnome Kitchen. They discovered that, even here, the ghosts had been rampaging. Quickly gathering up all the traps, the trio went to leave when Cerise saw a glinting from the Magic Press. A look uncovered a gold chest. Maya found a gold chest behind the press. Pedro found a gold chest under one of the tables at the Gnome Kitchen. An excited trio headed to the Castle Vicinity.

Chester Cat & Cuddles Panda went to the Commercial Area. When asked about the ghosts, the gnomes complained loudly pointing to the grey balls lying around. Chester & Cuddles went to work collecting the traps. The gnomes were so appreciative of the pair's effort that they gave them a gold chest each. Laden with traps and a chest, the duo headed to the Castle Vicinity.

Eugene Donkey & Pepito Pumpkin stayed at Cloud Pier. They asked Transformer Magus about the ghosts and any ghost traps. He pointed them to the Mailbox lying on the ground. Investigating they found the traps and placed them in a pack. Transformer Magus then handed each of the pets a gold chest - saying he was pleased to meet such helpful pets. Eugene & Pepito joined Chester & Cuddles in heading to the Castle Vicinity.

The pets that went the castle turned the adventure into a race to see who could find the most ghost traps in the shortest time.

Felicity Rabbit & Yowla Yeti dashed to the Castle Gates - sure they would win because they chose the closest venue. However they hit a snag. After questioning the Knight Lords, they discovered that the Knight Lords had kept ghostly visitors to a minimum. The pair had to search everywhere - the Broken Well, the Rock Garden, the Bird Cage, the Raven Stone and the Belfry. They only found a few ghost traps but for their efforts the Knight Lords awarded Felicity a gold chest & Yowla a silver chest.

Jackson Jack-in-a-box (alias Jack) and Alvin Penguin hurried to the Castle Entry. While Jack raced around peering in the Fire Fountain and the Wheel of Fortune, Alvin climbed up on the knee of the Keeper of the Castle. Alvin chattered to the Keeper asking him about ghost and traps - ending with a fervent wish to find enough traps to get the Black Candy lollipop from All Hallows Jack. The Keeper smiled and reached over to the Harp in Blossoms where he had placed the traps that the ghosts had thrown at him. Meanwhile Jack had hit the jackpot at the Wheel of Fortune. There were a whole pile of ghost traps there as well as a gold chest. Alvin wanted a chest too so he looked in the Fire Fountain and found a silver chest. Loading themselves up, the duo headed back to the Castle Vicinity passing Felicity & Yowla who were still searching.

Kenzie G. Gnome & Sidney Snowman headed for cooler climes - Ice Rock. After telling Henry the Archaeologist why they were there, Henry told them to look in the Frozen Treasure and the Summer Garden. They found a silver chest each & several traps in the Frozen Treasure but they were difficult to get as neither pet wanted to wake the sleeping dragon. It was much easier in the Summer Garden where the Lady Reader smiled at them but didn't help as she was in the middle of storytime for a group of youngsters. Sidney was tempted to stay but nagging from Kenzie finally got him to move. They passed Felicity & Yowla.

Bright Eyes Lemur & Steffany Squirrel raced to the Throne Hall determined to have some fun. They walked sedately past the Lord Chamberlain and then clambered up to the Armor & Banners. Rummaging through everything they found a few traps and Steffany found a rusty chest. Down they went & up the other wall to the Flag but this spot yielded no traps. They tried to break the chains holding the Chained Chest shut but all that happened was the Lord Chamberlain came to investigate the ruckus. Steffany explained their mission to the Lord Chamberlain. He told the pets to look in the Door Cache - that is where he told the cleaners to put them. Clapping excitedly Steffany & Bright Eyes opened the Door Cache. There were the ghost traps and a rusty chest for Bright Eyes. They thanked the Lord Chamberlain and dashed from the Throne Hall.

When Steffany & Bright Eyes got to the Castle Vicinity, they found Kenzie & Sidney already there. However they had more ghost traps than the other two. All Hallows Jack declared both teams the winners and gave them candy as a reward. The Ghost Hunter grabbed the traps. Now the pets were helping find the traps, he was able to catch lots of ghosts.

Jack Jack-in-a-box & Alvin Penguin arrived next. Followed by a forlorn Felicity Rabbit & Yowla Yeti. At the same time, pets from the Cloud City group and some from the Town group also arrived. All Hallows Jack awarded all the pets the candy they wanted because they were all helping.

The Bunnies took a short-cut through the trees to the Castle Vicinity. Once there Jasper Bunny headed over to the Broken Carriage to see if any ghost traps were there. Brodie Bunny went to check out the Crypt.

Tilda Bunny was taking Zeva Bunny and Benji Bunny over to investigate the Gnome Road Sign when Benji raced ahead. He was Unstoppable. That is, until he cannoned into a tall, very thin person with a talking pumpkin head. It was All Hallows Jack. The jolt of collision caused Jack to drop his sack of candy. It spilled out across the ground. Benji said "I am sorry, mister." as he raised his head to look at Jack. Benji got a fright - he had not seen anyone like that before. In an Apprehensive Tone, he repeated his apology and raced to hide behind Tilda. Jack looked at the spilled candy & at the scared young bunnies. He gave a soft chuckle and told the bunnies they could have the spilled candy if they cleaned up the mess. Zeva & Benji nodded vigorously. "Yes, sir!" they chorused in unison. Jack went off to telephone his factory & get a replacement sack of candy.

There was too much candy for the young bunnies so Tilda suggested they share with the 3 children over by the boat near the bridge to the castle. The children said they were the Trick or Treaters. Benji & Zeva offered them some candy. In return the Trick or Treaters handed Benji some ghost traps. At the look of bewilderment from all 3 bunnies' faces, the children explained that they traded candy for ghost traps. Tilda thought this was a wonderful way for the youngsters Benji & Zeva to get some traps. Exchange completed the bunnies went to leave when one of the children reached into their boat and pulled out 3 gold chests - one for each of the bunnies. After leaving the Trick or Treaters, the bunnies approached All Hallows Jack. Tentatively Benji held up the ghost traps he had been given. Pleased Jack let Benji & Zeva take their own pick from his sack of candy. Benji took the Gummy Eyeballs while Zeva opted for the Orange Candy.

Meanwhile Jasper's search of the Broken Carriage had yielded several ghost traps. He picked up all the traps plus a silver chest. He then headed over to All Hallows Jack.

Brodie had the biggest surprise of all!

Brodie Bunny descended into the Crypt. Carefully he skirted around the Vampire Bride skeleton while he checked out all possible places a ghost trap might be. In one dark corner, he came face-to-face with a ghost. "EeeeK!" he squeaked. Utterly terrified, the ghost tried to disappear into the wall. Brodie was bewildered. He thought ghosts would attack, not try to run away. So he had a closer look at the ghost. Brodie realized the ghost was white & rather small. And it was frightened. Frightened of Brodie! Brodie did not like that so in a soft voice he said "Hello. My name is Brodie. What is your name?"

"The other ghosts call me Whimpy Wisp cause I don't have any Courage and Tenacity," came a quavering answer. "They chased me in here and hurled those grey balls at me."

"Well I won't do that and nor will the rest of my family. Do you want to come home with me?" Brodie asked even as he hoped Miss Dot didn't mind a new pet joining the household.

Whimpy's eyes began to gleam and a light surrounded his head. Hoping he would finally have a home safe from the bullying of the other ghosts, Whimpy said "Yes!"

Brodie & Whimpy exited the Crypt & went over to All Hallows Jack. Jack produced his candy bag for Brodie to make his selection. All the while Jack pretended he didn't see the shivering little wisp hiding behind Brodie but Jack did bend down & whisper in Brodie's ear "Take a candy for your little friend too". Brodie nodded.

Brodie joined the other bunnies. He introduced Whimpy & told the other bunnies that Whimpy was coming home with them. Calling out "Come one Whimpy!" Benji Bunny started hopping for home. Zeva followed. "Go on," said Brodie. With a little carefree laugh, Whimpy quickly followed his new friends.

continuing the saga of "Dot's Home For Misfit Pets"

Petunia Pig was overjoyed when Corky Pig said he would love to help her search for ghost traps. Hanging up the telephone, Petunia dashed to her room. Here she donned her new yellow sundress with the lemon & white dotted frills at her neck and along the hem. There was a tiny strip of red between the dress and the frill. Then she donned gold bangles in the shape of an Endless Knot. She had found both items at Kaley's Fancy Goods Autumn Sale. It had cost her the last of her coins. But what the heck! Money is for spending. It just means that sometime soon Petunia will need to go chest hunting. Satisfied with her appearance, Petunia hurried to Miss Linet's cottage near the edge of the Elvyn Forest.

Corky was waiting for her at the gate. To Petunia he looked very dapper in his white T-shirt with the blue star on the front and his cinnamon coloured drill pants. Hand in hand they set off for the Tree Top Area in the Elvyn Forest.

Across the bridge and through the arch - then up the stairs, they went. Arriving in the Tree Top Area, they found it very quiet with mist curling through the trees giving a surreal look to everything. Then they saw the Lady With The Lamp. She had the gift shop known as the Cluttered Shelves. Petunia & Corky went over to talk to her. When asked about ghosts, she became irate. It seems that the ghosts had been throwing grey balls around her shop - knocking items off the shelves. She still hadn't found a silver cup and 2 tea strainers. They had also crushed the bellflowers and injured a visiting Praying Mantis. The Lady With The Lamp had resorted to asking the Wise Dragon to put Runes around her shop to keep the ghosts out. When Corky queried her about the grey balls (alias the ghost traps), she handed him a couple and said the rest had gone to the rubbish dump.

Woodrow Woodpecker poked his red head out of the Office and informed the duo that his place had been spared the chaos. However the ghosts had targeted the Elf Potions. So much that the elves had locked down a cover over the potion table and gone on vacation. Investigating Corky & Petunia found many traps among the shards from the smashed vials and beakers. Carefully the pair collected as many traps as possible.
