"Gotta be careful, Tibber," Julie-Ann admonished the teddy bear. "This is the Shadow Witches' cave. If we can steal their gems, we can save the castle!"

Raoul watched from the sink. Julie-Ann crept in with exaggerated stealth. She clambered onto a chair and peered into the paper grocery bags.

"We found them!" she squealed. She reached in and retrieved a shining stone, big as Raoul's fist. It lit up the room. Julie-Ann dashed out, Tibber bouncing against her leg.

Raoul set down the pot he'd been scrubbing. Hesitantly, he leaned over and peeked in the bag.

Cans of tuna. A bag of beans.
