Butlettax, the junior giant, was always up to something. ‘Butlettax!!!!!’, his father would be heard yelling, ‘I will put you in a boat and send you out to sea one day. Then, maybe, I will have some peace!’ But before his father could do that, Butlettax stole the Book of Magic Plants and everything turned topsy turvy! Only one creature could help fix it, a two-tailed lizard called Filfolensis. But what will it take to get Filfolensis to help? The lizard is grumpy and tired. Can you help us to convince him that this is worth his time?

Butlettax, il-ġgant iż-żgħir, dejjem kien ikun qed jagħmel xi ħaġa. ‘Butlettax!!!!!’, kien jinstema’ jgħajjat missieru. ‘Ser nitfgħek fuq dgħajsa u nibagħtek barra fuq il-baħar xi darba forsi għal darba jkolli naqra paċi!’ Imma qabel ma kien jista’ jagħmel hekk, Butlettax seraq il-Ktieb tal-Pjanti Maġiċi u kollox dar ta’ taħt fuq. Kreatura waħda biss kienet tista’ tgħin biex tissolva din il-problema: gremxula b’żewġt idnub bl-isem ta’ Filfolensis. Imma kif ser jikkonvinċu lil Filfolensis biex jgħin meta dan dejjem mitħanfas u bin-ngħas? Tista’ tgħinna nikkonvinċuh li din il-problema hija mezz tajjeb li bih jista’ jqatta’ l-ħin tiegħu?
