    Over the cover you will see them fly, fly, flying

    On the pages you will hear them fall like dropping bombs: painful, scary, and rapidly   

    Behind the bookshelf they spy

    Through the gates they will fall into a book

    A man with a golden watch they will see

    Book

    Gates

    Blimp

    Mr. Fogg

    World

    Finish the book

    They fell into a blimp and were asked “are you Fogg?”

    By an old man they answered “Fogg”

    The man replied “yes Mr. Fogg”

    They answered “no” 

     

    What book do I love?

    Through your eyes you will see the cover (the screenplay)

    All blank and not alive

    Into the store she walks.

    Over to the door of doors.

    She goes to Mr. Magorium’s (or his) room and .

    She sees Mr. Magorium (or him) getting in his PJ’s. 

    He sees his life as an occasion.  He rises to it!.

    His store is magic and so is he.

    He is like a wizard and magic wizard .

    Every word you read is him - the magic man.

    The world’s best toy store owner.

     

    Store owner

    Old man

    Friend

    Never mean

    Weird

    MAGIC!

    Crazy

     But one day his store turned, turned gray

    he was dying

    so was his store.

    He had lived a long, great, full life

    he would laugh about the time he had done things

    and was crazy.

    He had a store that cared about

     him and he cared about the store.

    He had people who loved him as a friend

     and he love all he had.

    He might be crazy but he has a big heart

     and he has a big brain.

    He is full of grace

     and he is a person who lives in love.

     He is love, love, loving.

     Soon after he died

    the store turned gray

    and was not willing to come back, back to life.

    Soon after the store did not trust her…!.

    He had a man write a book of his life.

    A long sweet sublime life,

    He made his life as he could do anything…
