The story continues from this beginning:
Tra is shopping in a local farmer's market on Machoo. She likes to buy food that is grown locally because it helps the environment. Food grown far away would have to be driven in a truck to her city and that adds to pollution. She turns around and sees her brother Spec eating all the Turlan Tomatoes straight out of the basket! Gluttony Cloud is making Spec eat too much, and without paying for it! Should Tra try to find a Balance Plant Baby to save the day?
"Stop Spec, stop!" cried Tra. She ran to Plant Baby Central. All the Plant Babies cried out to her, "Pick me! Pick me!"
"How much is a Balance Plant Baby?" She asked the shopkeeper.
"100 VPs please," he said.
100 VP' was all the money she had, but Tra took a deep breath and said, "I'll take it!"
She carried Balance Plant Baby back to the farmers' market.
"Oh no! Someone's having a Turlan Tomato problem here!" said Balance Plant Baby. It jumped to Spec and touched him.
Spec suddenly dropped the Turlan Tomatoes. "What am I doing?" he said to himself.
"It looks like he lost Gluttony Cloud," Tra thought.
And so he had.

The shop assistant was chewing on a chip when the old man shuffled up to him, "Can I help ya?" he asked pushing the empty chip packet off the counter.
"Yes there's no bait left in the bait aisle and I promised my grandson I'd take him fishing today!" murmured the old man.
"Well um uh well the thing is ahˇ here!" the shop assistant gave the old man a packet of gummy worms. "Best bait in the whole country. Your grandson will love them."
The man peered suspiciously at the packet, he didn't have his glasses on so he bought them and shuffled out.
Tom sat on the dock impatiently, wondering where his Grandpa was. At last the old blue car appeared and Grandpa hopped out with two fishing rods and a shopping bag.
"There you are Grandpa!" Tom exclaimed giving his Grandpa a hug and he took the smaller rod. "Did you get the bait?"
"Yes I did. In fact a most helpful fellow at the counter today, gave me the best bait he had with a discount!" Grandpa pulled the packet of gummy worms out of his pocket and handed them to Tom.
"Oh thanks Grandpa, how did you know I liked these!" cried Tom happily.
"Good are they?" said Grandpa settling down on the edge of the dock. "Well you'd better bait your hook!" said Grandpa.
"With what? Where's the bait?" asked Tom. "This bag's empty you must have been cheated!"
"I gave you the bait boy, five seconds ago!" snorted Grandpa.
"No you gave me the gummy worms!" Tom had another look at the bag. "You lost your glasses didn't you?" he asked.
"Well I'm not wearing them!" replied Grandpa.
Tom began to giggle uncontrollably. "Oh dear! This bag is from the lolly shop. It's right next to the Fish'n'Bait store!"
Grandpa thought for a moment before beginning to laugh himself, "Oh dear me you're right."
After Grandpa had driven to the correct store and bought some real worms, he and Tom had a good afternoon fishing and eating gummy worms.
