Jake Skunk loved to ride his scooter around the park as fast as could go. The wind whipping through his tail and ruffling his fur was fantastic, and sometimes he got the wheels spinning so fast he felt like he was flying, When little Mandy Mouse wanted to go with him, he’d tie her roller skate to the back of his scooter with a shoelace and they’d both go zooming down the path, laughing and smiling the whole time.

Crash through the waves and give me your smile
