One day, Maya walks her dog, Spot.
Soon Maya sees purple spots on Spot. Maya stops.
She looks down. Her arms, her shoes, her legs... Purple spots are everywhere!
How did the spots get there?
Maya looks up. Something purple falls from a tree onto her nose.
Maya runs home. She needs a bath. Her clothes need to be washed two times.
"Were you playing under a mulberry tree?" asks Maya's grandmother. "Mulberries are just that color!"
Spot is a big mess and has a long bath. The spots on Spot take six days to go away.
