A Game of Words
In order to create new characters, places and objects, the author must also create new words. You, too, can be creative by playing with words in a different way. Look at the words that follow. Choose two and combine them to make a new compound word. Then tell how a wizard would use this new thing. Create an illustrated dictionary of at least ten words.
Example: Combine foot and pick to make the new word footpick. When a wizard wants to dig up his gold he says magic words to turn his foot into a pick and starts digging.
