They even agreed to take care of the animals while Alex and Carmen took their first vacation.
"Goodness!" she cried, grasping the iron rail of the seat.
Around it were arranged, like the five points of a star, the other five brilliant balls; one being rose colored, one violet, one yellow, one blue and one orange.
These spires were like great spear-points, and if they tumbled upon one of them they were likely to suffer serious injury.
They began to wonder if there were no people to inhabit this magnificent city of the inner world.
