Jemima is still lying in her bed sleeping, so why am I showing you this lovely ornament in one of her favourite colours - yellow? Oh right, Jemima has started to "sleep travel", i.e., dream...
Will this dream be about food, food and more food like the last one I told you about, I wonder? No, I believe this one will be different... :)
As it turns out, Jemima is dreaming about Fairyland! In her dream she has made a trip to this magical country with Quackie and her parents. They are watching a beautiful fairy gondola float by on the river Aquamarine. On it are two winged fairies wearing beautiful gowns. The pink haired fairy is called Miss Raspberry Wishes and the fairy with the blond hair, who is actually steering the boat with her magic staff, is called Miss Serene Diamonds.
As they travel further down the Aquamarine they notice a fairy named Fraise DuJardin taking care of her little garden on the riverbank. She is watering her flowers, as well as giving the little rabbits that live inside the tree stump to drink. But it's not just any kind of water. This water is specially processed (a recipe invented by Fraise). It makes any plant you water it with, and any animal that drinks it, smell sweetly and marvellously of strawberries.
This pretty horse is called Berry Creme, and she is actually a real unicorn (no, unicorns are not at all extinct). She lives close to the Aquamarine and loves to take long tranquil walks along the riverbank.
Julie can't believe what they are seeing. "A unicorn, James! We're so lucky to meet one!" she exclaims and sticks out her hand to greet the creature. Berry Creme bows her head politely to the family. Jemima and Quackie stare at the unicorn open mouthed. They have never seen a pink horse before. Soon, Jemima regains her composure and asks Berry Creme whether she may ride on her back.
Berry agrees and soon Jemima and Quackie can view the riverbank from the back of a unicorn.
"Mommy, Daddy!" Jemima giggles, "De unicone smell like stwawbewwy!" James and Julie get a whiff of it, too.
Finally, the Periwinkles board the fairy gondola for a ride down the Aquamarine.
The Periwinkles watch as Miss Raspberry leaves the boat for a quick errand. After an exchange of kind words with Berry Creme, she holds the tip of her pink magic wand against the tip of Berry's silver horn.
She does this every once in a while to recharge. (Recharging wands is one of Berry's special talents and she does it for free.) The Periwinkles hear a buzzing sound and see a few sparks fly until the transmission of energy is complete.
Once they are all aboard the boat, the trip down the river can continue.
Jemima is and Quackie are feeling a little light-headed. Is all this really happening, or is it just a dream?
She really doesn't know anymore,
and to be honest,
neither do I...
for all your kind feedback
