CHAPTER 1

The Jaguar


Beth stepped out of the Imagination Station.

She knew one thing right away. She wasn't at Whit's End.

Thick, lush bushes surrounded her. She heard a bird whistle from somewhere above.

She looked in the direction of the sound. Tall trees seemed to stretch to heaven. They blocked most of the sunshine. Their thick trunks were covered in vines.

She moved a few yards into a small clearing.

"Patrick!" she called. "Patrick! Are you here?"

She listened carefully for an answer. She strained her ears. But all she heard was a lovely mixture of bug, bird, and jungle sounds.

Water was flowing somewhere close by. Hoots and clicks and buzzing filled her ears. And monkeys chattered. Or was it something else?

She looked back at the Imagination Station. It was still there.

"That's strange," she whispered. "Usually it disappears right away."

Beth suddenly felt cold. The dark shadows of the trees felt spooky. The air was thick with moisture and lingered in her lungs. A large mosquito landed on her hand.

"Take that!" she said, slapping the insect away.

In response, she heard leaves rustling behind her. She turned.

Was that a face in the bushes? She blinked and looked again. The face was gone.

Grrr. A soft but menacing growl sent chills up her neck.

Beth turned and saw a jaguar.

Its fur was golden brown with black splotches. The huge cat perched in the V of a tree trunk. Its long tail flicked quickly.

Beth thought that it must have just jumped into the tree.

"Nice kitty kitty," Beth said, cooing. "I hope you've eaten a tasty snack or two today."

The cat growled again. Its golden eyes were the color of a glowing jack-o'-lantern.

Beth had only one hope for safety. But that meant turning her back on the big cat.

She took a deep breath. Then she pushed through the bushes. She lunged toward the Imagination Station. She stretched out an arm to touch the door.

But instantly the machine faded. Her hand felt nothing.

She gasped and stared into the vast jungle.
