Flopsy the Whimsical Clown Fixes His Engines and Speeds Forward

Flopsy the Whimsical Clown Speeds Forward

Once Flopsy was back on the move, he made very good time. Although his car is not as aerodynamic as Clarobotoo’s flying car, it does have three engines. He did not think he could catch Clarobotoo, but he thought he would try anyhow. Here he flies high above the clouds in his polka-dotted flying car.
