Pablo's Story:

Can you imagine a pufferfish afraid of his own needles? Well, Pablo was. One day when Pablo was practicing his puffing powers, he saw his reflection in an open clamshell. Pablo screamed, “Nnnneedle!" He almost fainted at the mere sight of himself! Ever since that day, Pablo was afraid of needles. Until, one day Pablo had to protect his friends from a mean, hungry shark named Germ.
