Jennifer Murdley’s Toad
About the Story:
“I do have one toadonly onethat I can let you have for a somewhat lower price,” Mr. Elives said.
Jennifer Scowled. “What’s wrong with it?”
“Ther is nothing wrong with him. He simply does not suit my needs. He will however, provide you with a great deal ofamusement. It may, indeed, be a perfect match.”
Something about the way the old man said this struck Jennifer as odd. She had an uneasy feeling that he was making fun of her. Yet there was no trace of a smile on his face.
“What do you mean?” she asked.
The old man shrugged. “No one comes into this shop by accident,” he said, as if that explained things.
Jennifer Murdley had no idea what she was getting into the day she bought the big toad from the strange man who ran Elives’ Magic Shop. The thing didn’t even start talking to her until she had it out of the shop.
And once the toad did start to talk, it still kept a lot of secrets. So Jennifer didn’t find out about his strange birth
or the treasure hidden in his forehead
or the witch who was out to get him
until she and her friends were in more trouble than they ever dreamed of!
