Overview

The creative croapfs haven't been very nice to The Land of Pink Windmills, although it's their favorite land because they love to fly their paper airplanes from the cliffs above it. But something has gone wrong with them.
Meri was able to help when the croapfs flew The Black Attack, the immense paper airplane, over The Land of Pin Windmills, to shut off the sun. Now they have another ingenious plan: to drop sootcases on the windmills, ending their ability to absorb sunlight in a far more dangerous way than before. The beloved cleanliness of the land is gone. The beloved Pleasantly Moving Air from the windmills of the land is gone. the Land itself is almost gone! Who will help The Land of Pink Windmills this time?!
How wouldyou like to look at The Land of Clinging Light at night, from above? It would take a flying wand to do that!
Vaguely she could see the various lands rushing by below her. and then she saw the lightedness of the land in the distance. She couldn't believe the enchanting colors coming through the night to her!
And then she was above it!
It was amazing, all the glowing cakes, the grass even on color, with so many flowers adding their actual colors to the night---like another sky below!
This was the way to see this glowing land. The trees were dramatic!
And how do you think Jethro gets to fly? It would take an amazing colorful crazy idea! Can you think of it?

Meet the Author

Larry Good has always been interested in creativity. At the University of Virginia he majored in English---or in English and American literature---which is essentially the creative use of words and sentences in our language. For his master's degree at the College of William and Mary, his thesis discussed reactions to students with "divergent thinking," another name for creative ability at that time.
This story is an illustration of his exploration of creativity, which brings together a variety of elements to form something new. The same Suddenly! that both Meri and Sticktight invent is a good example. They intentionally put words together suddenly without thinking and then examine the combination to see how interesting it may be. The activity expands the flexibility of one's mind so that Sticktight easily cretes the idea of a Talking License---and eventually gets one!
This game can be used to demonstrate and encourage creativity. It can also be used with a dictionary with stimulating results.
