Out in the wide blue ocean where the warm breezes blow was the island of Tufterville, where the Tufters lived.

There were Tufters of all kinds. Some had one tuft. Some had two or more. They came in many colors — green, red, blue, yellow and so many shades in between. Some had tufts that were tall. Some were short. Some were straight, some crooked. Some were wiry and thick and some were soft and fluffy.
