Clarobotoo Flies Over the Appalachian Mountains

Clarobotoo Flies Over the Appalachian Mountains

By the time that Flopsy the Whimsical Clown had figured out his engine problem, Clarobotoo was soaring high over the Appalachian Mountains. By looking at his flying-car-scope, Clarobotoo could see that Flopsy was delayed. Clarobotoo knows that “slow and steady wins the race,” so he sailed along at a comfortable pace and enjoyed the sights of the countryside from high above the ground.
