Andy is a fast runner. But not fast enough to outrun Auntie Elsie. Andy is good at hiding, but Auntie Elsie always finds him. When Auntie Elsie breaks her leg and stops coming to visit, Andy begins to miss Aunt Elsie and her sloppy kisses. Then one day, a taxi pulls by the gate and out come two crutches. Now it’s Andy’s turn to get Aunt Elsie. Kiss! Kiss! Hug! Hug!
