Welcome to Funky Town! My name is Lele. I’m going to be twelve soon, so I’m not really a kid anymore. I live here in Funky Town. Every night people are drinking and dancing and celebrating together. I don’t like parties very much, and I don’t have any friends, except for Cat. My favorite things in life are poetry, food . . . and mom, of course! Oh, and each day I go to Baba Yaga’s house in the woods to get mom her potion. Mom always tells me to be careful around Baba, but I don’t know why. When I grow up, I will be like Mom.
