Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Fangl and the girl with the dark blue eyes. Sylvie says she had to write in Fangl because he would die from the rust disease otherwise, and she couldn't bear to never see the girl with the dark blue eyes again. She says no one will notice that the third lady-in-waiting has a new helper.
Forty thousand. After that, everyone was very busy!
Oranges. Pingree also tells some very non-funny jokes, like, "What did the big toe say to the little toe? It didn't say anything, silly brains. Toes can't talk!" It turns out that none of the characters really remember what happened except for Sylvie.
Onions and eggs. Queen Emmeline is aggrieved that she cannot send baby onions and wren's eggs with her daughter. Sylvie ends up just taking bread and cheese.
A frog in a basket of laundry. Pingree is wearing a purple robe that's much too big for him and a crown that's much too big for him. Sylvie thinks he looks ridiculous.
Red and black. That is partly how Sylvie can tell that something is wrong. When she's riding down the path to the castle, she can see that the square-ness of the castle is off, and that the flag colors are not blue and white, like King Walther's were, but red and black.
t. Another word Sylvie whispers to Claire is simply "Fangl."
Blue leather. She also said it smelled like dust and rose petals, though mostly just dust.
Hroth. Hroth looks like a bull, Sylvie thinks. He is the one who meets Pingree outside Riggeloff's tent in the thieves' camp.
All of these (A marmalade-colored cat, A blue dragonfly, An old woman). Sylvie thinks it's strange that the picture keeps changing. She also sees her mother and father in it sometimes.
It was run over. Sylvie is confused about how the things in Claire's dreams can die, and then be back the next day in perfect health.
|When Sylvie and her parents reach the city that is the center of Claire's dreams, they first see Claire wearing a fancy black party dress. What kind of flower is she carrying?||"The Great Good Thing," by Roderick Townley
A marigold. Claire looks like she has been to a grownup's party, where she didn't have much fun. She is very happy to see Sylvie and the king and queen, though.
Ricky. Ricky wanted to burn the edges of the book to make it look older, but he accidentally set the entire book on fire.
His eyes. Sylvie thinks Pingree's eyes are a bit creepy because one is brilliantly bright, and the other is rather dull. She doesn't know which reflects his real moods.
A stone, a feather, and a piece of silk. This happens in the dream with the white birch trees. Claire is dressed as a doctor, and upon seeing Sylvie there, she says, "My patient has disappeared." They find "the patient," (which is the girl with the dark blue eyes) in some laurel bushes, by fallowing the trail of blue things she left behind her.
Find Me. Sylvie thinks the note means "Find Me" as in a hide-and-seek game, but Claire is certain she's been taken against her will.
Pingree. Pingree follows Sylvie, then tells King Walther about her adventures.
The Adventure of the Muddy Forest. When Sylvie first goes into Claire's dreams, she is in a muddy rainforest, and Ricky, Claire's brother, has kidnapped their grandmother.
Never look at the reader. All of these are probably important, but the number one rule is never look at the reader, though Sylvie has done it many times, and even King Walther (though he tried to deny it) has glanced up at least once.
Orange. First the bright orange bird comes and squawks at everyone, then the bullfrogs in the Mere of Remind say, "Booook open! Ooopen! Boook open!" That way, the characters know to get to their places in time.
Rhododendron. Pingree hides and watches, then takes the reeve and a squire over to show them the hiding place of the "outlaw." Being turned into the green pig pays him back.
No. Sylvie, being chased by the monster robot, is forced to leave Lulu inside one of the panel-rooms, where a nice group of clowns take care of her. They also teach her to do back flips and other tricks.
Thank You For Stopping By. Have a Nice Day!. Sylvie says, "How nice!" and tries to eat the cookie, but it's really not edible.
Ben Gunn. Sylvie is frightened to hear something skittering in the bushes, but it turns out to just be Ben Gunn, completely lost in the story that is not his own. He's shivering, so Sylvie gives him her cloak.
It turns into a mirror. When Sylvie is jumping off the cliff on her little donkey, suddenly she slams into the hard surface of the Mere, which has turned into a mirror. That same time, Riggeloff's men shoot roses (instead of arrows) at her.
Blonde. It is described as "straw-colored," though.
An ear. Sylvie isn't sure what it is at first, but then she realizes it's a giant ear-and that there are big hairs sprouting out of it.
Green. It turns out that that's what Pingree turns into because the virus turned the word "Pingree" into "Green pig."
9:14 A.M.. Suddenly, everyone feels lighter. Pingree falls over, gets up, and falls over again, unused to the change in weight.
Mint. Rosetta makes mint tea and watercress sandwiches, though neither tastes like anything, since they're online.
Croton Falls. Rosetta, even though she likes the storybook, is homesick for Croton Falls.
