The Greatest Show Ever Imagined

The concept came from a children's book I had put on the back burner years ago. The story calls two characters (a young girl and her puppy) plus over 300 individual props ranging from wooden puppets and old school dive helmets to man-eating plants and a creepy Jack-in-the-box, so I have my work set out for me.
