Pudd in the Mud
As told by Phee McFaddell

When Alisma, the
water nymph moved to the Green, muddy Pudd was all ready happily living there.
Every so often, a water pipe mysteriously breaks on the Green. It usually
happens late at night. In the morning the Greenskeeper finds puddles of mud
everywhere, with small almost childlike footprints all around. Little does the
Greenskeeper know that Pudd, the Mud Bog Gnome has struck again.
Pudd loves mud!
He rolls in it and sticks leaves and flowers all over himself so that he can
wander around in disguise and watch the humans. The humans, if they see him at
all, think he is just a strange looking plant. Some have even sworn they have
seen the plant move, but of course, no one believes them.
Pudd has other
uses for the mud besides spying and studying human behavior. He helps the
animals and the birds of the Green when they are sick or hurt, you guessed it,
with a famous Pudd Herbal Mud Bath!
So, if you happen
to see a walking bush one day when you are on the Green, stop and talk to it.
Pudd loves company and you might be invited to a midnight mud bath, if the
Greenskeeper doesn't catch you!
