Overview

In this story by children's book illustrator and author James Rice, an ordinary child named Lyn is bored by the prospect of another slow day with nothing to do and wanders into a strange pet shop where he buys a mysterious "fuzzy seed." In the woods behind his house, the fuzzy seed grows from a downy flower into a friendly giant of a creature that becomes the boy's friend and constant companion, playing games and walking in the woods.

The pet shop owner had warned Lyn, "Beware the March winds, and the cold winds," and sure enough when the seasons change and the wind begins to blow, Fuzzy grows smaller and smaller until he disappears. Lyn misses his friend, but the great Fuzzy has taught him much about friendship and the special gift of youthful dreams that come but once.
