Journey to Lundinor, a secret underground city where ordinary objects are capable of extraordinary things. Ivy and her older brother, Seb, have tumbled into a world that is anything but ordinary. In Lundinor, ordinary objects that have been made “uncommon” possess magical powers. For instance, an uncommon comb can jump out of a coat and defend the wearer against someone trying to pick his or her pocket, and an uncommon button can work its magic to restore a sick person to health.
Now it’s your turn. Write a short story in which you create an uncommon object. Describe your uncommon object and what powers it has?
