The Magical Book

“Ack, it’s smoky in here!  Why’d she light a fire in the summer? Where is she?”

“She’s right there, doodling in her journal, as always… Oh.”

“Better writing than talking to that weird old guy, but she isn’t here. Her journal is, though.”

“What are you doing?  That’s her private thoughts!”

“Look at this!  This is just filled with gibberish and senseless scribbles.”

“Hmm, maybe not senseless…”

“This is the last entry. I wonder what it means?”

“Repeat the words the wizard spoke
Grow thin and turn to dusty smoke
Then to their surprise
Up the chimney you will rise”

      Funny, I once read a story where some kids used Alice to figure out how to get to a different plane of existence and was thinking about that story (trying hard not to copy any part of it!) when I wrote this.
