By Alan Snow

Chapter 50

Magnetism!

  • As Snatcher leads his minions through Ratbridge, its citizens freak out. Snatcher has Framley destroy a pawn shop so his people can loot it.
  • Just as they begin to fire the cannons on town hall, though, the cannonballs stop and turn back toward the minions. Everyone ducks and the missiles whiz over their heads and back toward the Cheese Hall. Strange, right?
  • The same thing is happening with every household metal object in Ratbridge, much to everyone's terror. Members of Snatcher's army are dragged back toward the Cheese Hall by their guns, and even Framley is dragged back in that direction.
  • Arthur and his crew decide to evacuate the Cheese Hall, since they can't get the magnet to turn off. But first Arthur goes back for his wings… will he make it out?
