A) Find out where the mice have been getting into your house – You track the mice down to a small hole in the wall behind the fridge.

C) See if you’re tall enough to reach the stars – You aren’t tall enough to reach the stars, you do however put your hand in front of a passing aeroplane so it has to quickly change course.

Not that you know it’s because of you because you can no longer talk to the spirits.

B) Ask the spirits if they know where you put that pen you lost three weeks ago – The spirits tell you it is behind the bookcase in your room. You look but there is only a pencil. You should never trust a spirit.

Once the potion wears off you are in the lion enclosure. The zoo keepers get you out before you are eaten alive, but they ask how you got in to the lion enclosure in the first place and why they have one less lion now than they did earlier that day. You run away instead of explaining.

B) Make all your dreams make sense – You very quickly realise that once your dreams make sense they are incredibly boring and just not worth having. You make them as weird as you can again, which somehow means you have a recurring dream about being them man in the moon and how he got there.

C) Dream your favourite dream you had five years ago every night – Dreaming the same dream every night gets repetitive after a while you try to add different elements such as dragons, but you have to face facts: the dream is never going to be as good as it was the first time you had it, because you know what to expect.

Option CBC: Night air, mermaid scale, the twinkle from a starYou have created a flying potion! Do you want to:

The dog tells you it is because of Barker’s comet – a comet that can only be seen by dogs and all dogs get so excited by seeing it that they start to bark, hence the name. You ask if maybe the dog could just whine a little bit so only your neighbour can hear him? The dog says he’ll try next time he sees the comet, but he might get too excited, but says he’ll apologise if he does.

C) Talk to the moth that’s been in your house for the last few days and tell it where the window is so it will leave – The moth says it knows where the open window is, but it doesn’t want to leave, it wants to be friends with you. You scream at the moth. It leaves through the open window.
