Timothy’s bike has been stolen. While he and Ezra walk, it starts to rain. Hesitantly, they find cover in a cave that is said to be the home of a one-eyed ghost. After discovering the ghost is a one-eyed owl, they hear a noise. It’s the robbers, who hide their loot and leave. The boys come from their hiding places to find bags of money. Before turning it in, Timothy is tempted to keep some.
The importance of heeding warnings comes home to Timothy, as he ignores tornado warnings on TV, and takes Kathleen to see Alvey’s amateur radio rig. They’re caught in the storm, but arrive safely at Alvey’s, while Rev. Matthew consoles Aunt Matilda, who is worried about them. The dam breaks, and the whole valley is flooded. After clinging to a log in rushing water, they and others receive Red Cross assistance, then find refuge in a synagogue, welcomed by rabbi Levi and volunteer hospital staff.
Timothy and Kathleen complain that Aunt Agatha doesn’t give them fun toys. In Tim’s dream, he meets a magic rabbit who grants his wish to be in a land of gifts and toys. There, Tim and Kathleen find trees full of gifts. But each tree is guarded by a strange creature who wants to become a citizen, and giving is against the queen’s rules. Tim wants to become a citizen, plants a tree, and grabs his gifts – all but a doll. Kathleen asks for it, but Tim can’t give. The doll tells Kathleen that the citizens can say only one word, “Gimme,” and must serve the greedy queen. Tim and Kathleen run to escape. Tim gives Kathleen the doll, thus, breaking the spell. Back home, they plan a gift of helping Aunt Agatha.
