WIZZY’S TOWER

aesopinrhymewith00tayliala_0019

Let’s take a look in Wizzy’s Tower. Wizzy says that he LOVES having people drop in but I am not sure that he does. He gets up to lots of different things in there and it is NOT easy to get in. Not easy at all.

Sometimes he has all the windows and doors locked and sometimes he puts traps all over the place. He hides things because he thinks someone might steal them.

Wizzy can be VERY suspicious. He has 121 F’Realies living in the Tower with him.

 

If you are very quiet, we can take a look around Wizzy’s Tower right now.  He does have a telescope. Up on the 15th level.  The Telly F’Realies take care of the Telescope. They are keeping count of the Flying Beings, watching for any changes in the skies and trying to find new colours and soft fluffy things. Wizzy is looking for many, many different kinds of shapes and sizes, all behind one another and leading to adventures and the Telly F’realies keep watch day and night.

The Woody F’Realies are especially strong. Wizzy sends them out into the Forests and the over the Bay to the Islands. Wizzy loves wood and is always looking for more. He says he needs wood to make his gardens and build his shelves. Wizzy is always talking about building something.

Before the Woody F’Realies came to live in the Tower, not much actually got built.  Wizzy was so busy that he never went out chopping up wood.

He wouldn’t use magic to get it either. Wiz is rather strange about when he will use magic and when he will not.

The Four Woody F’Realies think Wiz is very funny and they take good care of him.  He makes them laugh.

One of the things Wizzy has done is to build a MENAGERIE in his Tower. Almost everyone agrees that Menageries are NOT modern at all. A menagerie is a collection of wild animals. The collection is specially for SHOW.

Menageries have a bad name in the World up on Top. Mostly because the “Wild Animals” don’t have any choice at all. In Triflora, things are a bit different. Wizzy is a “PERFORMER” and the Critters in his Menagerie are plumb crazy about being there.  They are also  Performers. The Menagerie is on the Ground Floor and is most exotic. Wizzy loves Critters and they love him.

MADRIEL PEACOCK.
Madriel’s Aviary is very colourful and he likes sitting on a branch and flourishing his tail feathers at the People who come to look at him.

THE FOX AND THE LION.
These are two of the best performers in the Menagerie . They have a fabulous act where the Lion leaps across the creek with the Fox in his mouth and pretends to eat him.  It scares people half way to silly.

ERNIE is a bird of his very own. He sits on his branch in the menagerie and looks ARROGANT. That’s what he likes to do. Look Arrogant.

The only Critters who ever get locked up in the Menagerie are the SPRITES. Sprites are Spirits who are totally mixed up.  Sprites really enjoy spooking people and they try to mess up the Menagerie. Wizzy gets VERY upset with SPRITES.

The SPRITES seem to like Wizzy’s Tower  more than any other place in Triflora and they really try to cause problems for him. They shimmer all through the Menagerie. They scare some of the Critters and irritate others.

THE WANDEROO MONKEYS.

Their cage very often has a sign on it saying “ NOONE HOME”. The Wanderoo Monkeys love to go a’wandering. Wizzy says that if they are not in the Menagerie 4 days a week, they will have to go back and live in the Forest over on 3rd Island.

SHERINA SHIMMERER.
Shimmerers do some funny things. You know that already. Sherina liked to show off. She likes being in the Menagerie and showing visitors how clever she is.  Sherina IS one of the best Shimmerers of them all.  Her room in the Menagerie is filled with flowers and paintings and beautiful furniture. Sometimes she shimmers so fast that you cannot find her amongst the flowers and paintings.

RENATA REDLANDER.
Renata like to think that she is a normal REDLANDER but she is actually very old fashioned.

Wizzy has given her an enclosure of her own because he has a soft spot for Redlanders.

Renata is always dressed perfectly  and she loves having crowds come to watch her.

THE JAGUARS
The Jaguars come from 3rd island where it is very hot almost all the time. The keep a huge heater in their enclosure because they do not like being even a little bit cold.

THE ESQUIMAUX DOG

The Esquimaux Dogs come from the Ice Lands and their enclosure is kept very cold. They are Friends of the Ice Girls.
