“My name is Professor Rat”, he replied, glaring at Sal until he looked down at his feet uncumftably. “This is my shop do you like it?”  Sal didn’t know what to say so he nodded without saying a word.

 

A minute later Professor Rat had disappeared with a swirl of his smart leather coat, he disappeared into a red corridor and Sal was alone. He noticed he had been looking at his feet for 5 minutes straight. He had meant to be looking around the shop the unusual shop but something kept catching his eye he longed to know what was inside the strange book. He looked around the corridor to seem if he was still there none was there so he opened the book and before he knew had was drawing forests with flowers and toad stools and creators that only existed in his head and all the things he liked.

Suddenly he felt a tug on his hair it was the Professor’s pet rat. The rat got the pen and wrote follow. So Sal got up and waited for the rat to move. The rat jumped of the table and scampered, into the corridor, standing in front of a door waiting for Sal to get up and follow him. Sal got up closed the book and walked over to the rat. He opened the door the rat ran into the land what looked just like the world he just drew, he walked onto a hill.

Chapter 1

The Emporium

There are some places where no one ever goes. The secret Emporium was like that.

Even though comics and books lay waiting to be read.

Even though the smell of brand new books drifted out the door

Even though the tempting sound of books cracking as you bend the spine.

Even though the words and pictures in books and comics appear.

But no one ever entered. The doorway was too heavy and dark. It was as if the Emporium wanted you to enter at any cost and no one ever did

 

Chapter 1- Through the door

Sal had always wondered about the Emporium and what was inside it. His father often warned him not to go in because it would make trouble. One boiling hot summer’s afternoon he was walking down Clover Road when he noticed something strange about the Emporium. For a change, the door was open and without really thinking about it, he stepped inside. Every he looked it was packed with wonders and things that he wanted to touch. He saw a silver cage of a family of rats nibbling on food and chew toys the rats had little mushroom hats and tiny boots on. But what interested Sal most was an old leather-bound book. As she turned the pages, the drawings seemed to jump out the pages each drawing seemed to start a new drawing as u touched the pages.

 

“I see you’ve found my book of wonders,” ground a voice. Sal gasped, closed the book and looked up at the owner. He was an old man whose face seemed to make you feel sad and all your happiness drifted from you. On his shoulder sat a rat chewing on a piece of chocolate. It shacked its head at him, disapprovingly.

Chapter 1- Through the door

Dexter had always been mischievous and his father had often warned him that it would get him into difficulty one sunny afternoon he was walking down ice lane when he notices something odd about the emporium .at last the door was open and without really thinking about it he stepped inside.

 

Everywhere he looked it was packed with wonders and things that he wanted to touch .leather books with spidery wringing. The tiny puppy’s that squired scurried and scampered around their crate. A kaleidoscope that beamed in the sun light as the colourful patterns appeared. A basket of parasols with frilly edges and talking animals heads on top.

 

Broad brimmed hats made of feathers and felt. Cups and plated decorated with hand painted flowers. Disturbing masks with grinning smiles. Huge dolls with wooden faces.

 

But what interested Dexter most all was an old leather bound book. As he turned the pages, scribbled in tiny writing which shoes a little boy playing football and when you turned it was a different picture that appeared.

 

“I see you’ve found the book of marvels.” Roared a voice. Dexter gasped, closed the book and looked up at the owner, He was an old man whose hair was as dark as a tree branch. On his shoulder sat a white barn owl. It shook its head disapprovingly.

 

“My name is Miss Pratchett”

She said glancing at Dexter then he started fidgeting uncomfortably.

”this is my shop do you like it”? Dexter didn’t realise what she said so looked at the ground and nodded. “Here is my book of mystery. You are free to look around my shop but DON’T touch the book!”

 

A second later miss Pratchett had disappeared a swirl of hear mouldy green leather coat, behind a Curtin and Dexter was allowed recognised that he had been tapping his foot. He had meant to continue looking round the shop but there was something about the book that called to him. He peaked round the Curtin and could just see down along the empty corridor which had what appeared to be at least a hundred doors. Where do they lead to He wondered?

 

Turning back he opened the book. Each page contained a portal that sent you to different countries there were drawings and notes about every single country, continents, towns and villages and more. The next thing Dexter knew he was drawing lots of different countries then he saw the little baby jaguar said “follow me I will show you something amazing “puréed the jaguar Dexter new exactly what he was supposed to do. He opened the door and entered. He stepped not into a room but into lots of countries. You could see from chilly mountains tops to sunny beaches and holidays.

The secret Emporium

“my name is Professor Severus Snape”, he explained, glancing at cosmina eventually she shuffled to the Conner of the shop in confusedness.

“this is my shop. Do you like it?”

Cosmina never knew, what to say so she said hmm.

“here is my book of mysteries marvels, you are free to have a look around my shop but don’t touch my book of marvels.

It stood on the floor and tapped his long nails on the door. Cosmina knew exactly what she was supposed to. She opened the door and entered . she stepped in but not in a room but in the rainforest  with any animal you could still she saw a different colored birds flittering . a path  swerved away from her towards the abandoned cottage.

The Mysterious Emporium

Prologue

There are some places where no one goes. The secret emporium was like that.

 

Even though, there lay a chest full of jewellery that had gold and diamonds. Even though, the chocolate and the cakes in the window looked like they were begging to be eaten. Even though, there was a shelf filled with rare and exotic collectibles from different countries. Even though, you could smell crunchy crisps and chocolate brownies being baked.

 

But no one ever entered. The doorway was too heavy and too dark. It was as if the emporium to enter any cost and but no one ever did. No one until, John.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 1-Into the Emporium

John had always been nosy and wanted to see what is inside the emporium. His parents had often warned him that it could lead into a problem. One bright and dry afternoon, he was casually walking down mystery road when he noticed something strange about the emporium. After it being closed for a while, the door was wide open and without thinking about it, he stepped inside.

Everywhere he looked, it was packed with wonders and things that he wanted to touch. John gazed at a treasure chest filled with gems and jewellery, the glistening making the room bright up. In one side, there was a shelf holding a collection of old, chipped and broken masks which were painted with bright colours. On a counter, there was a plate with brownies oozing with chocolate and caramel waiting to be eaten. A towering cabinet filled with china tea sets, a group of rare and exotic items and parts of ancient artefacts that where around the Bronze Age. Near the corner, there stood a grandfather clock made out of wood and metal ticking as time passes by. Next to a door, there was a glass case that had an old and dingy doll that’s eye seemed to follow you as you walk through the hallway. There were several types of futuristic technology that could fly and light up when near. A brilliant throne made out of glistening gold and green emeralds sat in the middle of the room.

But what interested John most of all was an old leather bound book. He turned through the pages, the writing seemed to be changing colours and moving.

“I see you have found my book of wonders,” hissed a voice. John gasped as he turned around and quickly closed the book. He was the owner of the emporium and looked like he was at least 25. On his shoulder perched a red and blue parrot. It shook its head at him, disapprovingly.

 

 

Chapter 2- A Warning Disobeyed

 

“My name is Mr Griffin Bronze,” he exclaimed gazing at John until he looked down to the floor, nervously. “This is my Emporium do you like it?” John couldn’t think about anything to say so he slowly nodded his head. “Here is my book of wonders. You are free to look around my shop but do NOT touch or read the book.”

 

 

A few seconds later, Mr Griffin Bronze had disappeared with a swirl of his black and red suit, behind a curtain and John was alone. He realized that he had been standing still and was staring at the floor for 5 minutes. He had meant to continue looking round the shop but there was something about the book that called him. He longed to look inside the mysterious, leather book and see secrets it could hold. He glanced around the curtain and could just make out a long empty corridor which had what appeared to be at least a hundred doors. Where do they lead, he wondered?

 

Turning back, he opened the book. Each page contained a different idea of something amazing or something mysterious. There where drawings and notes about animals, cities, towns, mythical creatures, ancient artefacts, futuristic technology and more. In each place there were wonders beyond imagining. The next thing John Knew, There was a pen in his hand ad was drawing a valley filled with mythical beings that were told in a variety of stories, He also sketched a tall treehouse. “Follow me” squawked a parrot. John closed the book and without thinking, followed.

The parrot flew down the corridor until it came to one door that had been freshly painted. It stood on the floor, put it’s beak on one side and tapped on the door. John knew exactly what he was supposed to do.

He opened the door and entered. He stepped, not into a room, but into a valley. He paused and listened. It was quite still, except the sound of dragons peacefully fly. A cobblestone road appeared in front of John towards a treehouse. The strangest thing was that it all looked exactly as he drawn inside Mr Griffin’s book. Without concern John ran down the path whilst the door behind him slowly closed.
