The Pipe Problem Excerpt:

In the heart of the night, when the stars shimmered like tiny diamonds in the sky, the garage was calm and quiet. The moon peeked through the windows, casting a silvery glow upon the sleeping construction vehicles. The air inside carried the faint scent of grease and metal. All was still.
Ellie Excavator peacefully slumbered in the cozy garage. Ellie was in the middle of a dream. In her dream, she found herself in a magical world where the ground was made of fluffy clouds! Instead of digging in dirt or sand, Ellie’s bucket plunged into the cottony white clouds, creating amazing trails that floated in the sky. With each scoop, she built entire bridges and tunnels – she was a cloud architect! In her dreams, Ellie felt as light as a feather, gliding along her floating pathways with a big smile.
