I am really, really unhappy! Every Tuesday Snapdragon swoops down and has the unmitigated gall to do nasty things to this book! What does he do? He eats some of the letters. Why, the other day he was up to his old tricks and before I could stop him, Snapdragon bit off the 'k' and part of the 'b' of this book's title.

That's right! What was left was This Is My Poo. Now I think that was a very naughty thing to do. I have decided I must stop this senseless carnage and Snapdragon's assault on words. You can devour literature, but this is ridiculous!

I got together with my friends and we came up with a plan to teach Snapdragon a lesson and make him stop nibbling on this book. I'm not going to go into detail (you'll have to read my book), but the plan has a very scary part.

Someone is going to have to venture into the Moonwood forest during a full moon and grab as many 'o's as possible from the ghosts of the Woollywolves. I bet you'll like that part of the story.

What happens after that is pretty cool but, as I said, you'll have to read the book to see what it is. But, let me tell you, when we are done, Snapdragon feels very sorry for himself and he says, 'I won't do it again.'

In fact, he is so sorry he even returns the 'k' for this book title and replaces the missing part of the 'b'.
