Sparkle Car #11: Out and About
"Georgia Bean, Out and About":
When Harriet Hawk pays the Junkyard a visit and lavishes them with adventurous stories, Ben notices that Georgia Bean is not as enthusiastic as the others. He finds out that she has had a particularly busy winter taking care of the mice and hasn't had any kind of adventure in a very long time. Ben then concocts a plan so that Georgia Bean can have some time off -- but it's not Ben that shows Georgia Bean an adventure, but Georgia Bean that shows Ben!
Also included: a folktale from Russia entitled "Baba Yaga and the Girl with the Kind Heart", in which a kind little girl escapes from the wicked grasp of Baba Yaga with the assistance of all the people, animals, plants and things that she has been kind to.
