'Why, that interfering little worm, someone ought to step on him!' the Baron hissed to Tiki Pu. I guessed he was talking about me. 'Well, never mind if he blabs about the wood,' he added, cheering up. 'I'll just lie, and say I had nothing to do with it. You, however, must pay Much-to-Learn a visit. Steal his secret spell.'
Jack loved it when Tashi told his stories. Today Tashi was telling about the time the old forest disappeared, and Much-to-Learn was in danger of disappearing with it! And then the whole village was threatened ... Could magic sand and a certain spell help save them all? Only someone as clever as Tashi could find a way to outwit the Baron - and solve the mystery of the disappearing trees. An Australia Reads exclusive story.
