Chapter 30

Back Below the Cheese Hall

  • Snatcher and his men bring Arthur back to the Cheese Hall, and hustle him down to the dungeon. They take his wings and the doll, which they laugh at and then throw on the floor. Sad face.
  • That's when they reveal that they're stealing size from creatures as part of their evil plan. They can take something's size away, which is why they end up with so many mini critters.
  • And they'll probably add Arthur to the list, leading Snatcher to say in Madame Froufrou's accent that a tiny boy will be the next new fashion. Yikes, right?
  • But since Arthur freed their most recent batch of monsters, they need to go find more; so everyone leaves, and Arthur's stuck alone in the dungeon.
