SUMMARY: Meet Will, who wants to go to the Royal
Academy for Fairies when she turns ten. Her pet Chinchilla,
Ralph, tries to point out that the Moon has gotten caught in the
window, but Will can't hear him when he speaks. Will was born
after her mother suffered a series of miscarriages, and raised
her to believe she could do anything she can imagine. Ralph,
however, explains that Will has no imagination. Even the fairy
dream comes from Ralph. And her faith in her will is shattered
when her parents promise her she can have a dog if she can raise
the money to neuter it. She saves up bottles and cans for a
year... and then finds her parents didn't think she could do it.
They can't have a dog because of their lease. Ralph is her
consolation prize. A lonely Ralph sighs his troubles to the
Moon, and asks her to take him with her. The Moon says she
travels alone... but, still stuck, rips the house free from its
foundations as falies into the air, tipping the house sideways.
A sleeping Will awakens - or is she dreaming? - and suddenly can
hear Ralph, and imagine things for herself. She conjures up
fairies to help right the house as it flies. "Where are we
going?" asks Will. "I don't know," replies Ralph. "I haven't
imagined it yet!"

SUMMARY: A sinister new narrator takes over the
story, manipulating the narrative so that the sun rises, the
moon fades away, and the fairies leave. The house crashes in the desert, where
Will, now awake, can no longer hear Ralph's voice.
Thinking she's the last survivor of nuclear war, she ties a
ribbon between herself and Ralph, and Ralph is overjoyed when
Will says that he's her only friend. However, they meet a
rabbit named Claire, pursued by a coyote named Vern. Will
thinks the coyote is a dog, and abandons Ralph to find the
ravenous coyote something to eat. Vern's okay with that...
but the moment she stops feeding him, he'll just eat whatever's
nearest. Ralph tries to warn her she's in danger, but she
can't hear him. Claire promises to keep a dejected Ralph
company. The narrator then interjects that he lied about
being a narrator... and cuts the ribbon joining Will and Ralph.
Will and Ralph land in the desert.
Communication problems ensue.
