About this product
- DescriptionWilliam Steig's Tiffky Doofky, a garbage collector for the town of Popville, has a feeling one morning that something special is going to happen, so he goes to a fortune teller. She says he will meet his true love that very day, before the sun goes down. Tiffky Doofky looks everywhere, but he doesn't realize that a bad-tempered witch has tricked him. As the day goes on and the sun sinks lower in the sky, he begins to despair. Will he ever find his beloved? But a perilous encounter at the end of the day may be the most romantic near-death experience of all.
