That kinda looks like Allison. What that says? You can’t touch that wall. You can only touch it on the computer.

The desert

Why the animals are not there? I guess they let them go. They switched the books. The books are there because the animals are gone. They are gone into the forest. They thought that was a nice home.

The animals ripped the pages. The books belonged to somebody, but they didn’t want them anymore.

Reindeers live in the forest.

K: Is this the forest or the jungle?
M: It’s called the jungle. The reindeers can jump over the stream.
K: Do other animals live in the jungle?
M: Other scary animals. And also witches. There is a witch behind there. The tree. That’s her home [in the back].

M: The books are just hanging out. Nobody reads them.
K: How did they get there then?
M: They blew.

Ok. It’s scary. There’s no animals around there. No sharks around right now. And no people around there right now. It’s scary around there. Now say “guy go”. Guy Go has sharp teeth and claws. Guy Go is in the water. Swimming.

K: Is there really water in there?
No. I think that book is hanging from a wall.
