Mossby’s Magic Carpet Handbook

by Ilona Bray

“Congratulations, new owner of a Mossby’s Model D3 Extra-Small Magic Carpet, Especially for Young or Vertically Challenged People. Not sure where to start? Never fear, our Mossby’s Magic Carpet Handbook contains all the information you need to navigate the skies, deal with altitude, wind, and weather, and triumph in tough situations. In no time, we’ll have you ready to meet fellow carpet riders (and the occasional annoyed goose), sample unusual food, and visit the people, animals, and landmarks of the world!…”

So advertises the mysterious book you’ve just received in the mail, from a great aunt you’ve never met. Paging through, you find it filled with not only handy instructions, but your great aunt’s handwritten notes. More exciting still, she promises that, when you’ve proven yourself ready, her magic carpet will be all yours! But there’s no time to waste. Only your great aunt can tell you the Magic Word that makes the carpet fly, and she’s getting, uh, just a tad forgetful.
Can you learn what’s in the handbook in time? Will you be ready to embark on high-flying adventures around the world? And if you think you will be, just how worried should you be about these words from the handbook?

“WARNING: Mossby’s products are only for people who have the skills, bravery, and all-around derring-do to handle magical objects. Remember: with great adventure comes great danger.”
