Trisha | 31380 comments Michelle (NY)'s Labyrinth

labyrinth1

Late one night while you were watching a small baby, after hours of listening to it cry, you said the fateful words:

"GOBLIN KING! GOBLIN KING!
WHEREVER YOU MAY BE,
TAKE THIS CHILD OF MINE FAR AWAY FROM ME!
I WISH...
I WISH...
I WISH THE GOBLINS WOULD COME TAKE YOU AWAY...
RIGHT NOW."

Suddenly the crying stops. You're worried and concerned as you creep towards the door. "Baby," you call out. "Why aren't you still crying?"

What just happened?

Trisha | 31380 comments The Goblin King



You creep into the room and find that the baby is gone!

Suddenly a strange man appears and introduces himself as, Jareth, The Goblin king and that he's done what you asked. He's taken the baby. Oh no! You didn't really mean it.

But, try as you may, Jareth won't bring the baby back.

He does, however, challenge you to come take the baby. He tells you to come to his world and make your way to the castle through the Goblin City.

a. Read a book with a building or door on the cover

Trisha | 31380 comments No Easy Way

You chuckle to yourself. Of course you're going to save the baby, no easy route around this.

Just think of the parents coming home. What would you tell them? That you just lost their baby?

No, no. You will definitely beat Jareth, the Goblin King, and find the baby. Luckily, he's calmly waiting for your answer and you haven't accidentally said no out loud.



a. Read a book that starts with a letter in the name: JARETH
b. Read a book with more than 250 pages

Trisha | 31380 comments Of course you are going in to get the baby and you tell him so.

No sooner than the words are uttered, the world begins to shake and you start to feel sick. Closing your eyes, you reach around to grab something, anything to keep from falling! When the world stops and your are no longer dizzy, you open your eyes. The air has changed, the world has changed.

Where are you? Looks like Jareth has brought you somewhere outside the Labyrinth.

hoggle spraying the fairies

You turn and there is a strange man. He introduces himself as Hoggle, Higgle, Hogwart, Hedgewart, Hogbrain, or something or other.

and He's spraying cute little fairies....that bite...
BUT he won't deter you, true adventurer, from finding that baby.

After a little chat, he FINALLY tells you where the entrance to the maze is and even kindly opens the doors for you.

Guess you should....go in? He poses the question:
Should you go left? Or right?

A. Read a book with a main theme around a lie or a character who tells a lie(s)

Trisha | 31380 comments The Entrance:
images (4)

After running around for hours and not seeing a turn or dead end in sight, you slide down the wall to suddenly hear a little "ello" from the nearby wall. Is that....a talking worm??

He offers you tea and to come in and meet the misses. He may have good information but isn't this just a waste of your time? You need to find the baby!

a. read a book with food or drink on the cover
b. read a book with an insect on the cover
