Chapter One

Hi. Welcome to this book.
It's called PageLand.

This is a story about
love and sharing and working together.

See those little creatures below? They are the characters. That means
they live only within the pages of this book.

Since you are the reader of this book, the characters can't see you or
hear you. They can't smell you either. So if you have bad breath,
there's no need to be concerned.

In fact, the characters don't even know they live in a book called
PageLand. They just go from one page to the next without thinking
about it-just as we live from one day to the next without thinking
about it.

That's OK, because PageLand is a nice place to live. It is, after all, a
story about love and sharing and working together.

OK. Maybe not.

There seems to be a problem with your copy
of PageLand. The characters have gone

Look at them - making a mess of
the pages. Playing out in the margins.
Sleeping in the gutter
where the pages come together.


The author, who created PageLand
and wrote these words that
you are reading right now, was not pleased.

So one day, a giant loud speaker suddenly
appeared in the middle of the page, out of

(Yes, this is a pretty strange thing to happen. But remember, the
author created PageLand, and he can make anything happen he

"People!" came a voice booming from the
speaker. Everybody stopped and looked up,
amazed and frightened.

The voice continued. "This is the author
speaking. I'm not happy with the way you
are acting in my book. I want this to be a
happy story about love and sharing and
working together. OK?"

A murmur went up in the crowd.

"How did that loud speaker just
appear up in the middle of the air
like that?" someone said.

"Who is this 'author' person? I don't
believe in any author," said someone else.

"There is no author. Each of us is his own
author," said one of the new-agey types.

"It's a trick! Don't listen to the voice!" another yelled.

The characters were mad. "Let's tear
down the loud speaker!" they said.

At that, the angry crowd ripped the page
number from the bottom of the page and
threw it up at the speaker.

The speaker came crashing to the ground.

Well. This was very insulting to
the author. Especially that bit
where they threw the page

In no time, the characters were
back to their yelling and partying,
even forming a conga line
around the edges of the page.

They were making a mess of PageLand.

Although it would have been easy to end the
story right here on page 16, the author didn't
really want to do so. He liked PageLand. So he
had one last idea.

"I will write in a new character," said the
author. "Someone they can relate to and talk
to because he will be like them."

So that is what the author did.

Here is the new character.

His name will be Arthur.
