Take a breath
Close your eyes
Lift the page

You’re not in our world
anymore.

Now you’re in
Middle Earth
Forks
Or District 12

With people
who come alive
As your eyes skim
across the page

Aragorn
Gandalf
Katniss
Jacob

People you’ve never met
But seem to have known your whole life.

Frodo
Tally
Aya
Peeta

Page by page
Book by book
Story by story
you meet them.

Carmen
Risa
Annabeth
Percy

Their surprise is your surprise
Their horror is your horror
And when they’re happy
you are too

The magic comes alive
when you open the page

Open your eyes
Take a look
