Trixie, Daddy, and "Knuffle Bunny" take a trip to the neighborhood Laundromat. But the exciting adventure takes a dramatic turn when Trixie realizes somebunny was left behind. Alone or with her friend Opal, "Shrinking Violet" is a master mimic with razor-sharp wit, but real-time taunting by class bully Irwin unnerves her. Until the class play gives Violet a chance to turn the tables--while saving the day. Hush used to think that the "Possum Magic" used by Grandma Poss to make her invisible was fun - until, one day, she wants to know what she looks like. Together they must find a way to make Hush's wish come true. "Planting a rainbow" captures the anticipation and eventual pleasure of a garden full of flowers. Irene's mother, dressmaker Mrs. Bobbin, is not feeling well. She has finished the beautiful ball gown for the duchess to wear that very evening, but it is "Brave Irene" who volunteers to deliver it, in spite of the fierce snowstorm that is brewing. As Pa is taking Jim to school for the first time, Jim asks, "Will I have a friend?" "I think you will," said Pa. But kindergarten is scary, and Jim is sure that he'll never find a friend, until naptime, when he discovers someone who feels the way he does.
