Nothing pleases Spinky, the youngest child in a family of six - not even the clown his parents hired to cheer him up. It is only after he has had some time to himself to think the situation over that he manages to snap out of his sulky state. Exaggeration and the permanent scowl on Spinky's face provide much of the story's humor. (Ages 3-7)
