Jetta's Mom is working on a party, but Jetta's brother Cosmo keeps getting in the way. She figures that she'll have to call a babysitter, but Jetta says that she'll take care of Cosmo. Jetta's Mom isn't so sure about that; Cosmo is quite a handful. Jetta says that she can handle it, she loves playing with Cosmo. Cosmo, however, is quite active and quickly wears Jetta out. Charley and Emily Elizabeth come by and ask Jetta if she needs any help. Jetta refuses at first, but it's obvious Cosmo is wearing her out and so she finally accepts. Charley thinks it would be a good idea to read Cosmo a story to calm him down. Cosmo's too young to understand, but Emily Elizabeth doesn't think this is a problem. After all, Clifford likes it when she reads to him. She finds a story about a boy who came from a seashell. A fisherman caught him while fishing. He also caught a lot of other stuff including jewels, but he figures it's all useless, he only wants fish. He nearly tosses out the seashell boy, but his wife saves it from being tossed into the sea. They decide to name him "The Amazing Abalone Seashell Boy From The Lost Lagoon." They figure it's a name that will take him far. He first seeks out fortune at a shoestore, but the shopkeeper is a bit annoying, at first wanting to know if he's an elf and then asking if she can pay him in shoelaces. He decides to forget about this and makes his way to a castle. There, he finds a giant version of Mr. Bleakman. He's in a grumpy mood. The giant isn't normally grumpy, it's just that his mobile is broken and he can't sleep. The seashell boy tells him his name and just listening all of that makes him sleepy. Hearing it a few more times puts him to sleep and when he awakes, he awards the seashell boy with a goose that lays golden eggs. It was indeed a name that took him far. Jetta's Mom thanks Jetta for looking after Cosmo, but Jetta gives the credit to Emily Elizabeth and Charley. She asks if they can keep Cosmo a little longer. Everybody likes listening to the stories. She tries to read Cosmo something else, but Cosmo wants to hear about the seashell boy again. Maybe keeping him wasn't such a good idea after all...
