Sadly my time at the Island is coming to an end as I must return to Paultons to ensure all is well for the boys and girls who will be visiting my famous learning lab next year. However, Aulani, has told me of a problem – the CURIOUS CRITTERS are such social creatures and it seems that they are very sad that we are leaving so soon – they have said they would dearly love to come back to England, but, alas I don’t see how that could ever be possible……unless I could invent someway of being able to transport their world….now there’s a thought….
I remember my Great Great Uncle Sylvester once talking of a Portal Machine that he had written the blueprints for. I found these plans and have carefully constructed this rather odd looking contraption over the last few weeks. Now, if this works, I will have a way of transporting the CURIOUS CRITTERS, and their beautiful surroundings, to Paultons Park. Wish me luck then..1….2……3…….GO!
