Zara loved art. One day she was painting a poppy.
So she got a paintbrush. That paintbrush was from the most famous shop
ever and people used to say that everything was magical in that shop!
But Zara always knew that magic was not real.
First, Zara dipped the brush into a night sky blue, and painted
everywhere. When it was done drying, Zara painted with the same brush
stems, leaves and green bushes. And those dried quickly. Finally, Zara
got the same brush and painted poppies that were bright orangish and
reddish with one black dot in the middle of every single poppy. And
finally it was done. She showed it to her mom and her mom loved it. She
hung it up on the wall in Zara’s room.
One day Zara was having a playdate with her friend Aliza. Aliza liked
the poppy picture. Aliza and Zara touched it and were immediately inside
the picture. Then Zara knew why they were inside.
She said to Aliza, “We are inside my picture because I used a magical
paintbrush to paint my picture.”

“Well, we touched the picture to get in. Let's touch the picture again
so we can get out,” said Zara.
So they did the exact same thing. And it worked!
