There is a buzz in the Junkyard this week. It’s holiday time, and everyone seems to be expecting visitors: Li'l Mamma the busy rabbit is preparing for her children and grandchildren; Sally the chipmunk can’t wait for her brother to arrive; and Zippy the porcupine’s mother may appear at any minute. But no one is coming to see Ben Thompson, the clever Junkyard cat. When he realizes this, he finds he no longer feels quite so festive. But a quiet voice in the dusk wakes him from his loneliness, and reminds Ben about what he loves best about life in the Junkyard.
