The Last Leaf

Princess Snugglemuffin looked out the window. 

Only one red maple leaf remained. 

When it fell, WinterFest could begin! 

She loved its coziness: 

twinkling lights, presents, 

knitting, and doing puzzles by the fireplace.. 

But that leaf 

WOULDN’T

BUDGE. 

She took a closer look. 

The leaf was PINNED on! 

She noticed footprints by the tree. 

Snugglemuffin confronted Princess Snickerdoodle. 

“I did it!” Snickerdoodle admitted. “I’m not ready! I haven’t finished decorating my gingerbread cookies. I burned ten batches and kept starting over.”

“Oh sister, why didn’t you say so?”

Together, they iced the cookies and let the leaf go. WinterFest could begin!
