The Pukwudgie by C. Ché Salazar and Andrew Abbott

“Puk! Wudgie!”
“PU-PU-PU-UUUUK! wudgie.”
“What fun word! Pukwudgie. I wonder what it means… Puck*wud*gee- (noun) 1. From Native American, folklore a two or three foot tall troll-like being from Cape Cod area. Pukwudgies’ features resemble those of a human, but with enlarged nose, fingers, and ears. Their skin is described as being grey, smooth, and at times has been know to glow. They are notorious tricksters and are never to be trusted!!”
“Crud! Er… Sorry Mr. Pukwudgie. No hard feelings, right? Heh, right?”
