The Mysterious Thingamajig
By Joyce Furstenau

1     Moose found the mysterious thingamajig sitting beside a stump in the meadow. He looked closer. Moose moved his magnificent antlers up and down. He moved them back and forth.
2     "It's magic," said Moose. "I have never seen anything like it." Minutes later, Mouse appeared near the stump.
3     "What's magic?" asked Mouse.
4     "I think this mysterious thingamajig is magic," answered Moose.
5     Mouse crept up to the stump to take a peek. She took one look and made a face. She peeked at it again, and then she jumped down. "Amazing," said Mouse. Magnificent! It is quite marvelous. What is it?" asked Mouse.
6     "I wish I knew," answered Moose. "Let's ask Mole. He sees things quite differently." Mouse and Moose called down to Mole.
7     "Hello, Mole! Come and see what we have found!" they shouted. Mole put on his glasses and peeked out of his hole.
8     "What is it?" asked Mole.
9     "Come up and see it, Mole. It's a...a... thingamajig," stammered Moose. "We wanted you to take a look. We don't know what it is. It is a mystery."
