Independence Day on the Green
It is Independence Day! Martin wants to watch the fireworks from the central Green in town rather than from their bedroom windows like in previous years. But Sylvia is worried about leaving their old dog Billbill, who is terrified of the sound of fireworks. Through cleverness and ingenuity, Martin and Sylvia solve this impasse and have a rather memorable 4th of July.
