Once, there lived a piece of bread named Peanut Butter. Peanut Butter lived in a little cabin with his mother named Cream Cheese. He really wanted to find a friend.
One Thursday afternoon, Peanut Butter set out to find a friend. First, he came to a sprinkle box. A vanilla cupcake with strawberry frosting was playing there.
“Hello. My name is Peanut Butter. Can you be my friend?”
“Shhhh, you will blow down my sprinkle castle.”
Peanut Butter put his hands over his eyes. He went on.
Next, he came to a bowl of spaghetti.
“Hello. My name is Peanut Butter. Will you be my friend?”
The spaghetti crossed his arms and said, “Did you say you wanted to eat me? Well, you can forget it! I don’t ever want to be your friend!”
“Oh, my!” said Peanut Butter. He bent down his crust and went on.
Meanwhile at Peanut Butter’s house, there was a different problem.
“Help me! I am being attacked by a giant hamburger. Help! Help! Help!” cried Peanut Butter’s mother, Cream Cheese.
All of a sudden, it started to rain hamburgers!
“NOW IT IS RAINING HAMBURGERS!!” screamed Cream Cheese.
Peanut Butter came to a slice of cheese pizza and said, “Hello. My name is Peanut Butter.”
“Hello. My name is Pizza-Pizza-I-Don’t-Like-You-Go-Away-Now!”
“But I wasn’t—”
“– finished.” Peanut Butter sadly walked away and headed home.
“Son, you have to help me!”
“Hi, Mom. I think I am going to go to my room now,” said Peanut Butter, drooping sadly into his peanut butter room.
Suddenly, a piece of bread with jelly on it named Jells came down from the sky.
“Oh my,” said Cream Cheese. “A piece of bread with jelly.”
“Calm down, Etsy. Sit. Stop,” said Jells to the giant hamburger, Etsy.
Etsy listened and controlled his rainy hamburgers and himself. Peanut Butter heard that there was a guest over. Peanut Butter loved guests. Peanut Butter jumped out of bed and ran downstairs into the kitchen.
“Hello. My name is Peanut Butter. Will you be my friend?” he asked hopefully.
“Yes! I am new in this village, and I need a new friend.”
“My mom and I go swimming in the butter lake,” said Peanut Butter.
“My dad and I go to the Frosting museum!”
“How about we . . . go on an adventure?!” cried Peanut Butter and Jells together.
Peanut Butter and Jells first went out to the yellow, melted butter lake. Jells jumped in first.
“This is so fun, and I wish my dad would bring me to do this!”
Then Peanut Butter jumped in.
“Cannonball!” screamed Peanut Butter.
Peanut Butter and Jells started swimming. Peanut Butter got out and did another cannonball.
“Hey let me try that!” said Jells. “I’m going to do a pencil jump.”
Finally, when they were done playing, they went out to the frosting museum. Peanut Butter went in first.
“This is so cool! I’ve never seen so much frosting in my life!”
“I know. Isn’t it cool?” said Jells.
“What are you, kidding? It’s so cool!” said Peanut Butter.
“Ooo you know what you would like?” said Jells.
“What?” asked Peanut Butter.
“The Frosting Stairs. Your feet stick to the frosting, and you get sprinkles on your feet,” said Jells.
When Peanut Butter and Jells were done, they started heading home.
Peanut Butter and Jells were very, very tired. They were so tired, they forgot how to get home! It started getting dark out and very, very green. Suddenly, they noticed they weren’t near home. They were in the woods!
“I have a feeling we’re in the deep, dark forest. Maybe foxes and bears will be out by this time. Maybe we should try to find our way home?” said Jells, chewing on his fingernails.
“Right,” said Peanut Butter.
“But how?” said Jells.
“I bet we could find a way,” said Peanut Butter.
Then, Jells saw a little grey path with light at the end of the path.
“Look! There’s a path!” said Peanut Butter.
So Peanut Butter and Jells followed the path.
“Look,” said Jells. “It’s my house!”
“Hold on! I thought we were going to my house.”
“But don’t you want to visit my house?” asked Jells.
“Yeah. I guess you are right,” said Peanut Butter.
Peanut Butter and Jells started heading to Jells’s house. Peanut Butter knocked on the door.
“Come in,” said Blueberry Cream Cheese.
Jells opened the door.
“Hello, sweetie,” said Blueberry Cream Cheese.
“I see you found a new friend! Oh, also, where’s Etsy?”
“He’s at my new friend’s house,” said Jells.
“Well, can you please go and get Etsy because we need him to make dinner?”
“Okay, Papa,” said Jells.
And so Peanut Butter and Jells went to get Etsy. When they came back to Jells’s house, they found out that Peanut Butter’s mom, Cream Cheese, called Jells’s dad and said that since they are new friends, they can have a big feast.
“Woah! Why do you have all this stuff?” said Jells.
“We’re going to have a huge feast!” said Blueberry Cream Cheese.
“Oooo, is Aunt Chocolate Macaroon coming? She’s so fun!”
“Even better… your new friend is coming!”
“Really?” said Jells. “That’s even better than Aunt Chocolate Macaroon coming!”
“You think it is, sweetie? Well, I’m glad.”
Peanut Butter was very happy, too.
“I’m also excited, Mr. Blueberry Cream Cheese.”
Etsy was done making dinner. They went out to have a picnic for the feast. Peanut Butter’s mother brought pie for dessert, and Jells’ dad brought brussel sprouts and chicken.
“Yum!” said Peanut Butter and Jells.
And they lived happily ever after!
