One can slip inside of a slippery map, if it’s large and well imagined. One can slip into the World itself. ” Oyster said. He didn’t know what the Mapkeeper was talking about. Not really. Yet he loved the idea of slipping into a map—into his own map. ” “No,” the Mapkeeper said. “They’ve remained. They were needed, it seems, inside of their map. The Other Worlds exist, you know. Fully and completely. And those two, well, they were do-gooders; and now they’re grown-up. ” The Mapkeeper flipped her hands in the air.

But there was a reason he was there besides that, wasn’t there? He stammered on a bit. “What is it? I don’t have all day! I’m busy here, moving again. Maps into boxes. So that I can get to the next spot and take maps out of boxes. ” She started rummaging through a box at her feet. ” Oyster asked. ” He walked up to one of the shelves, reading the names: francesca harold, allen bloom, michitra hunan. he walked closer to the one marked STOLEN: eddy warbler and francine might. ” Oyster asked. The woman paused, frozen mid-slouch.

But they feel it. ” “Oh,” the Mapkeeper said. ” Oyster was shocked that he’d said this aloud. He’d thought it, of course, but he was surprised to hear the words bounce around the shop. ” “I don’t know,” Oyster said. Honestly, he didn’t. The Mapkeeper started to shuffle down the row, dragging her oxygen cart, her eyes scanning the labels. ” Oyster followed her closely, his ears pounding. “Oyster R. Motel. Oyster R. ” She stopped. Oyster nearly bumped into the oxygen cart. ” She pulled over a nearby step stool and climbed to a shelf so high that Oyster couldn’t see what was up there.
