At the very edge of the town there is a house, small as a cage, clean as a whistle and delicate as a flower. Granny and Granddad live in this house.
They have no children and they are all alone – until one day, a ball flies in through the window. It has arms, it has a mouth, eyes and such nice speckles that they name her Speckles the Ball. Then Rascal the Kite flies by and takes Speckles to his lair… and then the children come and help Granny and Granddad save Speckles the Ball.
