1: We dedicate this book to Walt Disney and Miss Iezzi.
2: Once upon a time, there was an old man named Waltetto who made souvenir stuffed animals for Disney World. It was a cold rainy day and Waltetto was in his workshop making his
3: signature Mickey Mouse doll.
4: Secretly, Waltetto wanted his little dolls to turn into a small mascot-boy.
5: Since the weather was so bad, the electricity went out and the few electric tools he used no longer worked.
6: Waltetto decided just to go to sleep. | While he was asleep, the Good Fairy Minnie Mouse came into his workshop. | She sat next to the last Mickey produced that day and said magical words. | "Zip, Zap,Zop", whispered the fairy.
7: The next morning when Waltetto woke up, he went straight to his workshop because he heard strange noises the night before. When he arrived at the shop, there appeared to be a small mascot-boy laying in the center of the room, sleeping.
8: Waltetto was so amused he started thinking of names for the mascot-boy. | He finally decided to call the mascot-boy Minocchio. Waltetto instantly woke Minocchio from his sleep so they could spend time together.
9: They went straight to Disney World. Waltetto and Minocchio went on many rides in the Magic Kingdom and were saving Whale Mountain for last. The two boys were having a marvelous time.
10: When they got on the roller coaster, they were having a lot of fun until they hit the whale's mouth. | Finally, the time came to ride Whale Mountain, the biggest, scariest ride at Disney World.
11: The roller coaster slowed down as it entered the whale's mouth.
12: "Oh no!" screamed a passenger in the back car. | "What do we do?" whimpered Minocchio.
13: "There are some technical difficulties with the ride and to get unstuck, somebody has to be untruthful." | Suddenly an announcement boomed from the speakers!
14: Minnocchio instantly started telling mean lies to people. "Oh your hair looks so nice today," lied Minocchio. This went on for a longtime. Minnocchio didn't notice it, but in the meanwhile his ears grow to an enourmous size.
16: Thirty-seven minutes later the whale's mouth opened. As soon as the ride was over, Waltetto and Minocchio ran to Cinderella's Castle and ran into the good fairy, Minnie Mouse!
17: "Zip Zap Zop," mumbled the fairy. | Minnie told Minocchio that she was going to turn him into a key chain stuffed animal and he had to be good and he couldn't lie for a decade.
19: Ten years later Minocchio was rewarded for being a good boy by being turned back into a mascot-boy. Waltetto and Minocchio lived happily ever after!
