1) I felt really sad. I thought that Runner Bean would die. I thought that the babysitter was the one who hurt Runner Bean. I was worried about him. 2) I they woke her up with the song. 3) The Bloors wanted to keep Emilia asleep so none knew that she was Emma. 4) I thought that the ruin games would be cool. I was not worried that Charlie would get lost. 5) Uncle Paton gave Emma her birth certificate so she could live with her aunt

1) sad and worried about Runner. Teddy thinks the aunt was responsible somehow. Addy thinks the boy who was a wearbear might be responsible.yes they were both worried about runner. 2)she woke up from the music that came out of the box. 3) They might have wanted her powers. They didn’t want her to find Mrs Ingledew. 4)it was exciting but they were not really worried about Charlie dying or anything . Billy was being a jerk during the ruin game. It was unreasonable game for kids. 5) uncle Paton exploded a bunch of lightbulbs and threatened them for the papers (proof) about Emma’s identity 6) (addy thought) it was very mysterious which was fun. (Teddy thought) it was a very good book and was interested in the comparisons to the Harry Potter books. He wondered is it was like Harry Potter where most people don’t know about powers/ magic?
