Description

Petunia has had just about enough of being human. All those baths, good manners, clean clothes, even combed hair

So our clever Petunia hatches a shocking and audacious plan to get away from all the haftas and instead live wild and free.

It is only when Petunia is about to leave it all that she realizes there can be joys and pleasures in being a human child.
