Dora & Boots help Wizzle go home.


Dora & Boots read a Wizzle story called "Wizzle Wishes". The Wizzle finds a bag of wishes. There were 4 in the bag. The Wizzle makes its first wish for ice cream. Then, the Wizzle wanted to make another wish but the remaining 3 wishes fly out of the bag. The wizzle came out of the book when it was trying to catch the other 3 wishes. Wizzle's parents were sad. Wizzle wanted to go home. So, Dora & Boots do all they can to help Wizzle get home by asking Map and says they have to go past a flowery garden, past a nutty forest and then they have to get up to a wishing well. Many obstacles get in Dora's, Boots' & Wizzle's way. When Dora, Boots and Wizzle got to the flowery garden, they find Isa. She finds a wish on a sunflower. Isa makes a wish that her sunflower would grow really big. As dora, Boots and Wizzle catch up to Isa, she explains that she already made a wish. Isa tells the group she wished her sunflower would grow really big. They had to get down the sunflower. So, Dora, Boots, Isa and Wizzle wrapped their arms around the sunflower and slid down to the bottom. After that, Dora, Boots and Wizzle exit the Flowery Garden and got going to the Nutty Forest. Once there, Tico finds a wish on a nutty bush. Tico makes a wish for nuts. Suddenly, some nuts hit Tico's head. Boots tries to tell Tico "watch out". But he didn't respond. Dora reminds Boots that tico speaks Spanish and had to tell him "cuidado". Once Dora and Boots told Tico cuidado, he moved out of the way before he got hit. Dora asks Tico if he was OK. Tico was OK. Soon after, Dora, Boots and Wizzle exit the Nutty Forest. Now, Dora, Boots and Wizzle have to figure out how to climb up to the top of the hill and up to the wishing well. They use the stepping stones that were shaped like squares. 6 of which were missing. The empty slots get filled in making a complete stepping stone path for Dora, Boots and Wizzle to use to climb up to the hill and get to the wishing well. Dora catches the wish and now they have to get the Wizzle book. The Wizzle book was inside Backpack. The viewer checks for it and the last wish was held inside the book. Suddenly, they heard Swiper the fox. Dora, Boots and Wizzle stop Swiper. from trying to swipe the last wish. After that, the last wish escapes from the book. The last wish was coming to the viewer at home. The viewer catches the last wish and says "I wish the Wizzle home" with Dora and Boots. Wizzle jumps back into the book with its mom and dad. And that was time where Dora and Boots helped Wizzle get home to its parents.
