Chapter 14

Puck

  • Picking up where Puck last left off, Peg Gratton putters away, and Puck and Finn head down to Skarmouth with a cart full of teapots.
  • They're going to Dory Maud's shop. Dory Maud and her sisters sell seashells by the seashore. Okay, we're not sure if they sell shells, but they sell everything else, including the teapots Puck makes. Better than stuff made in China.
  • Finn hangs out with the Carroll brothers, Brian and Jonathan, while Puck goes to talk to Dory Maud—this woman is always referred to as Dory Maude, never just Dory. Dory is a fish from Finding Nemo
  • Anyway, Puck is excited for the potential to earn extra money because Dory Maud has a catalog now, which means her teapots will be sold to people on the mainland too.
  • Despite having this little bit of good news, Puck is still worried. She doesn't look like a jockey, and little Dove doesn't look like a racehorse.
