Sometimes, people have to do things that make them unhappy for a little while.
Sometimes, people have to do things that make the people they love unhappy – for a little while.
Mad O’Brian knows that Poppy is sad but he also knows that she will be O.K.
When he comes back for her, he will be able to do MANY things. He has already been to the top of the highest mountain in all of Triflora and is learning the secrets of the stars.
Poppy wasstill VERY lonely without her Father, Mumma Jo loved her and she loved Mumma Jo but she had been with Mad O’Brian every day of her life and had many things to tell him.
One night, she was lying on the couch and not feeling very well. Sadness and loneliness can make people feel unwell.
She was lying there when she heard a lot of noise high up on the wall. It sounded like a giant cuckoo clock. Poppy looked up. It was a Kookaburra clock. The only one she had ever seen.
And it spoke to her –very loudly.
At the same time, all her toys started to move around and talk very loudly – just like the Kookaburra.
“Meet us here every night at Midnight. Kookaburra will bring you all the messages from all over Triflora. Just wait till he laughs 12 times and then listen for his news.”
