Twice as Nice

"He's already read this one," Cleo said, setting the small hardcover copy of Courgette Farming down on the table before plucking out the teabag from her mug. The Vandagyre inspected the satchel's tag for a moment before tossing it into the wastebasket.

The Potion Predicament

With a smile, Snazztacular the Purple Lupe poured Sloth Spaghetti onto the plate of yet another Grundo at the Virtupets Space Station. A gigantic line had formed outside Grundo's Cafe, every one of the clients eager for a delicious meal. Snazz was in fact doing volunteer work; the profits from the food sales were going to charity.

The Adventure in Krawk Island

I can feel the soft golden sand on my back and the bright sun shining in my eyes. I awaken at a Island lying in the sand near the docks, I am here with nothing but a small bag of dubloons. I seem to be at alone right now trying to find a treasure of some sort and my father's seem to have disappeared leaving a note "I'll be back soon", yet the ship is still here, not in great condition but able to sail to other places.

Charity Corner Shouldn't Be The End



We all love Granny Hopbobbin! She has such a kind and generous heart, always thinking of the less fortunate Neopians. She has successfully organized two charity drives now; one for Christmas toys and one for school tools. When both of these site events came to pass, I noticed an incredible amount of inflation in the Shop Wizard. That was great to see, not because it was more expensive to help others, but because it meant that everyone was doing their best to pitch in. We thrive on the amazing opportunities that she gives us to help those poor Neopets in need. I’m sure that many of you wish we had events like this year-round. I certainly do! For those of you who love charity, I have some terrific news for you! Charity Corner doesn’t have to be the end of your charitable contributions to Neopian society! There are so many great things that you can do out there!
