One would never suspect the kind of adventures Petunia Brown has by looking at her. On Monday she traveled to outer space to watch the rockets in the flying comet race and she spent Tuesday building robots destined for Mars. Her Wednesday was filled with the research of scientific feats and Thursday she spent her time cooking spaghetti with meatballs and baked jelly beans for the queen. Friday she was busy trying to save a puppy, two kittens, and the yeti Lamaze. Saturday it rained and Petunia Brown could do nothing much. Sunday she stayed in and dreamed about how the next week would be for her.
