    (Scene shifts to the Library. The camera pans over to a bookshelf and Whyatt appears from behind a book.)
    Whyatt: Hi, so glad you're here. It's me Whyatt.
    (A secret door appears behind Whyatt. Whyatt enters the door and arrives in Storybook Village.)
    Whyatt: Welcome to Storybook Village where all our fairy-tale friends live.
    (Whyatt's super duper computer starts beeping and he looks at it.)
    Whyatt: It looks like Red is upset about something; I'd better go see her.
    (Whyatt runs over to Red's house. Along the way he notices Little Boy Blue.)
    Whyatt: Hi Little Boy Blue.
    (Little Boy Blue waves back at him. He then arrives at Red's house.)
    Red: Drats, drats! Double drats!
    Whyatt: What's wrong Red.
    Red: Look what Peter Piper did to my skateboard!
    (Red holds up a red skateboard that has been broken in half.)
    Red: Then he ran away and left it at my house.
    Whyatt: That is bad.
    Red: I really want to teach him a lesson!
    Whyatt: What do you want to do?
    Red: I want to shove him, punch him in the nose, or break something that he likes. I told Grandma about this; but she said I can't see him until I calm down. But I'm so mad at him!
    Whyatt: This is a super big problem. And a super big problem calls for us; the Super Readers.
    (Whyatt takes out his super duper computer.)
    Whyatt: Call them with me. Say "calling all Super Readers."
    Echo: Calling all Super Readers.
    Whyatt: To the book club.
    Echo: To the book club.
    (Whyatt runs to the book club.)
    Whyatt: Come on, to the book club.
    (Whyatt arrives at the book club.)
    Whyatt: Whyatt here.
    (Pig enters.)
    Pig: P is for Pig.
    (Red enters.)
    Red: Red Riding Hood rolling in.
    (Princess Pea enters.)
    Princess Pea: Princess Pea at your service.
    Whyatt: And you; say your name.
    (Pause for the answer.)
    Whyatt: Great, we're all here; together we will solve Red's problem.
    (Everyone enters the book club and heads to their personal chairs. Whyatt enters his super duper computer into the database and information is uploaded into it. Then Red takes the stand.)
    Whyatt: Ok Red, state your problem.
    Red: Peter Piper broke my skateboard and I want to teach him a lesson. Grandma says I shouldn't do anything, but I'm so mad.
    Princess Pea: Oh my peas.
    Red: What should I do about Peter Piper?
    Whyatt: Good Question, and when we have a question we look …
    All: In a book.
    Pig: Which book should we look in?
    Princess Pea: Peas and carrots
    Carrots and peas
    Book come out
    Please please please.
    (A book with the title Moby D*ck flies out of the bookshelf.)
    Whyatt: Let's read the title of this book, Moby D*ck. We know what to do; we need to jump into this book and find the answer to Red's question. First we look for super letters, then we put them in our super duper computer. Super duper computer, how many super letters do we need?
    (A screen with the message "_ _ _ _ _ _ _" appears on the computer screen.)
    Whyatt: In this story, we need seven super letters. It's time to transform. Ready?
    All: Ready.
    Whyatt: Arm's in: put your arm in.
    (Everyone puts their arms out.)
    Whyatt: Super Readers …
    All: To the Rescue!
    (Pig transforms into Alpha Pig.)
    Alpha Pig: Alpha Pig with alphabet power!
    (Red transforms into Wonder Red.)
    Wonder Red: Wonder Red with word power!
    (Princess Pea transforms into Princess Presto.)
    Princess Presto: Princess Presto with spelling power!
    (Whyatt transforms into Super Why.)
    Super Why: Super Why with the power to read! And super you with the power to help!
    (The Super Readers are standing in the book club.)
    Super Why: Together we are …
    All: The Super Readers!
    Super Why: Whyfliers.
    (The whyfliers appear and the team hops into their why flier.)
    Super Why: We're ready to fly into this book.
    (The Super Readers fly into the book.)

    Will Red find the answer she's looking for?

    Forgive the censoring; but due to problems with TV.com, I can't put the name in.

    Crewmate: Captain, we can't cast off.
    Ahab: And why not?
    Crewmate: We don't have a sail; all we have is this pail.
    Ahab: But we have to go get Moby D*ck.
    Wonder Red: Wonder Red to the rescue! With my wonder words basket, I can get something that will help us get going.
    (Wonder Red opens her basket and the word Pail comes out. Wonder Red points to the P.)
    Wonder Red: What letter is this?

    Wonderrific, you're terrific
    Snail, hail, quail

    Ail.

    Wonder Red: S and N. What sound to they make?
    Answer: snuh, snuh.
    Wonder Red: Snuh snuh. And we know that this word is ail. What word is this?
    Answer: Snail.
    Wonder Red: Let's see what happens when we change pail to snail.
    (The pail turns into a snail.)
    Captain Ahab: A snail, what good is a snail?
    Wonder Red: Will a snail get the ship moving?
    Answer: No.
    Wonder Red: Double drat, we need something to get the ship moving.
    (The snail changes back into a pail. Wonder Red opens her basket again and the word sail comes out. Wonder Red points to the s.)
    Wonder Red: What letter is this?
    Answer: S.
    Wonder Red: What sound does it make?

    Wonder Red: Sss sss. And we know that word is ail. What word is this?

    (The pail turns into a sail. The ships starts to move with the sail up.)
    Wonder Red: Wonderrific, you are terrific. We changed the pail to a sail.
    Captain Ahab: Now I can catch Moby D*ck.
    (Two super letters, R and V, fall out of the sail.)
    Super Why: You see super letters? Which letters do you see?
    Answer: R, V.
    Super Why: R and V. Let's put them in our Super Duper Computer.
    (Super Why puts the R and V in the computer. A screen saying _ _ R _ _ V _ appears.)

    (The Super Readers walk over to Captain Ahab.)
    Captain Ahab: Now we have to find that whale and catch it.
    Sailor: But where can we find Moby D*ck; we don't know where he is?
    Alpha Pig: Alpha Pig to the rescue! With my mega magnifying glass, I can find the trail to lead us to Moby D*ck. Now Moby D*ck is a whale, so let's find the letters in the word whale to get to him. First we need the W?
    (Alpha Pig looks out and sees one path with a D on it, another one with an F, and the third one has a W.)

    (The next path has an O, The second one has an E, and the third one has an R.)
    Alpha Pig: Where's the E? … Yes, there it is.
    (The ship sails to the E and then Moby D*ck leaps out of the water.)
    Alpha Pig: Lickity letters, we followed the word whale and found Moby D*ck. Let's give ourselves a big thumbs up.
    (Alpha Pig gives a thumbs out.)
    (Scene shifts to Moby D*ck starts splashing around the letter O and I appear.)

    (The words Captain Ahab hates Moby D*ck appear on the screen.)
    Captain Ahab: Captain Ahab hates Moby D*ck.
    Alpha Pig: How are we going to stop him?
    Super Why: Super Why to the rescue! With the power to read, I can change this story and save the day!
    (Super Why flies over to the sentence.)
    Super Why: Let's change the word 'hates' in this sentence. Let's zap it. Ready, set, zap!

    Super Why: Whywriter highlight.
    (The words teases, forgives, and bullies appears on a screen.)

    Captain Ahab: I feel better; a lot better then when I was angry.
    Alpha Pig: Wow forgiveness really works.

    Super Why: E, V, and F. Let's put them in our Super Duper Computer.
    (Super Why puts the E, the V, and the F into the computer.)
    Super Why: We found all of our super letters. Now we can get our super story answer.
    Super Readers: Bye everyone.

    (The whyfliers fly over to the Super Readers.)

    Narrator *singing*: We found the super story answer with Super Why.
    (Everyone changes back and returns to the book club. Then they head over to the super duper computer.)
    Whyatt: Super duper computer, give us our super story answer.
    (The super duper computer processes the answer.)
    Whyatt: Read the letters with me. F... O... R... G...I...V...E. Our super story answer is forgive. But why?
    Princess Pea: When Captain Ahab forgave Moby D*ck, he felt better.
    Red: So my question is; what should I do about being mad at Peter Piper?
    Whyatt: And the answer is ...
    All: Forgive.
    Red: Maybe I should talk to Peter Piper and forgive him. I'll go do that.
    (Red runs off to find Peter Piper. She finds him at the playground.)
    Red: Peter Piper!
    Peter Piper: Hi Red. Look, I'm really sorry I broke your skateboard. If you want, I can help fix it.
    Red: I was mad at first, but I forgive you.
    Peter Piper: Thanks for not being mad.
    Red: You know, I feel a lot better now.
    Peter Piper: Do you want to go fix your skateboard.
    Red: Yes.
