Turkey and Blue Eyes have always been good little girls… until they meet a Strange Girl who tells them she has two tiny dancers in a box, but they can only see the dancers if they are very wicked. They go home and try to be wicked, but their mother tells them if they don’t behave then she will have to go away and send them a new mother with glass eyes and a wooden tail. They don’t want to lose their mother, but they MUST see the dancers. What are two good little girls to do?
