A Jigger of Paint
by Cynthia van Eyk

This is the story of a furry blue creature with a great big plan. He has an idea for something amazing―something that will make EVERYONE smile!

But before he can get started, he needs paint! A jigger of paint, to be specific. Nothing else will do. Not a pot or a bowl or any other sort of container you can imagine.

Only a jigger of paint will do, and when he finds it … it’s going to be INCREDIBLE!

Fun Fact

jig*ger: A machine or vehicle with a part that rocks or moves back and forth,e.g., a jigsaw
