The Book Excerpt:
You may know about the first spell I ever tried to do with Trillman. It was the spell where I had to turn Trillman into a puppy. At first the spell worked fine, but later I got a magic blockage which caused all my spells to reverse and Trillman became a guppy instead of a puppy.
At that time, I had used many different spells on Trillman and all of them turned out wrong. I remember a spell that I used on him shortly after the magic blockage was removed. This spell became Trillman’s ultimate test of patience with me. Here is what happened.
It was Saturday morning. I think it was around ten o’ clock or something. I had seen a spell in a magic book in the Other Realm that I wanted to use. The spell would turn Trillman into a small brown mouse. When I looked at the spell, I guess I didn’t read the whole thing.
I tried the spell on Trillman as soon as he came to me for magic practice. I must have gotten the spell wrong because when I next looked at Trillman I was staring at a large brown moose.
I tried to reverse the spell like I had when he had been a puppy, but that didn’t work. Then I tried to reverse it the way that I had done when he had accidentally become a guppy. That didn’t work either.
Trillman made me go back to the Other Realm to look at the spell again to see if it said how to reverse it. He came with me to be sure I did what it said.
I read through the spell again and noticed something I obviously hadn’t noticed before. At the bottom of the page was a notice. It said:
Spell can’t be reversed using another spell and it does not wear off after any amount of time.
Trillman also saw this notice.
I was confused. If you can’t use a spell to reverse it, and it doesn’t have a time limit, what else is there to do? You can bet that Trillman was mad at me for this.
One month later, I still hadn’t been able to figure out how to turn Trillman back to normal.
A while later I decided that Trillman needed a bath, so I took my moose familiar and led him outside. First I hosed him down and then I used dog shampoo on him. After I rinsed the dog shampoo off I went to turn off the hose.
I was starting to wonder what I would do if Trillman was a moose forever.
I turned back around to face Trillman and was amazed by what I saw. Trillman was a dog again!
It washes off!” I said excitedly.
“Apparently so,” Trillman said.
“Go figure,” I replied.
In the end it turned out all right, but I don’t think that Trillman ever completely forgave me for that mishap.
