Duffy Meets StellaLou
One day, Duffy came to American Waterfront and saw a little girl bunny named StellaLou who was practicing a dance in front of the S.S. Columbia. When she stumbled, Duffy called out to her in concern. StellaLou told Duffy that she dreamed of becoming a dancer. Duffy thought that a dream was just something you had when sleeping, but StellaLou explained that a dream is also seeing what you want to be when you grow up. StellaLou was practicing so hard, Duffy was sure her dream would come true.

One day, Duffy met a little girl bunny who was practicing a dance. “Oh, she stumbled! Will she be okay?” StellaLou, that was the girl’s name, said to Duffy, “It’s my dream to be a dancer.” “I thought a dream is what you have when you’re asleep.” “A dream is also seeing what you want to be when you grow up,” StellaLou replied. StellaLou started dancing again. “You’re sparkling just like a star!” said Duffy. StellaLou felt like she was a step closer to her dream.
