Terribly Wonderful

Riddle Soup

Mr. Poggle's clever riddles keep Scamp guessing each new ingredient for the soup as they riddle and slice the vegetables into the pot. Together they prepare the most delicious—and interesting—Scamp has ever tasted. Click to download a copy of Mr. Poggle and Scamp’s Riddle Soup Recipe.

The Oatmeal Cookie Giant

Scamp doesn't want to visit Great Uncle Thorny, but when he discovers that Great Uncle Thorny has a clock that strikes thirteen and can tell wonderful stories, he ends up looking forward to his next visit.
