What if a magical creature with the body of an elephant and the wings of a butterfly, a butterphant, offered to make it possible?Boffo is born out of the ordinary cocoon of a butterfly when Lindy pines for her missed chance to go to the circus. Boffo arrives and offers to take her on an adventure. It turns out to be even more exciting than planned.In “Part One, Lindy’s Adventure,” our heroine gets to go to the Hexapod Parade, an extraordinary insect circus. Of course, it takes a little adjustment to shrink her to the right size, but Boffo comes equipped with all that is necessary. Hilda Hawk makes an unexpected appearance at the circus and takes a liking to Lindy. She is just right for Hilda’s babies in so many ways.In “Part Two – Solomon’s Story,” Boffo returns to learn that Lindy is all grown up. However, he finds her son, Solomon, alone and bored. This time, Boffo offers an adventure into the world of small animals. Solomon is more than happy to accept the birthday party invitation originally intended for his busy mother. However, after Solomon has been shrunk down to size, they are intercepted by Grandpa. There’s only one thing to do … bring him along. Good thing, too, because Scat the Cat is after Woody Wood Rat. Boffo, Solomon, Grandpa, Toadle the Toad, Chippy Chipmunk, and Sarah Bushy Tail must save Woody from the monster cat.In these stories, Boffo reveals the twenty-one letter word that must be recited to shrink a person to insect size and a second twenty-one letter word for restoring the person. You can try them out for yourself. They won’t likely work without Boffo’s magic, but you should be careful.
