Melanie had a big nose. Melanie headed off to school and all the time as she walked she dreamed of having a button nose, just like Maria, Meemo, and Zeego. Everyone in Melanie's family had big noses, but she had the biggest of them all. Her father always asked her if she preferred to have a million dollars or her nose full of nickels. As she grew older the funny things about her nose started to wear off. Melanie had many mishaps because of her nose and she hated her nose. Something different happened when she saved a tiny, orange and white kitten high up on the tree branch. To little Fluffus, Melanie's nose was the most beautiful of noses.
