When he takes his puppets on the road, their show becomes famous throughout the land.But one day Poppy impatiently shapes a ballerina puppet, Clarinda, from a piece of wood without listening carefully to the wood's message. Clarinda will not perform - and almost ruins the show - until Poppy discovers her secret wish.
