    I think Frst was pointing out that pg 20 didn't fit your above theory.

    Ahh, gotcha! I wasn't even paying close attention to what *I* said! LOL

    OK, but they're all still red-heads, right?

    And why don't any of them resemble the Pickensrooter on the cover of the book, except for the tail?

    I think its because its an old book with old examples, and the faeries in the book seem to be more realistic versions, or maybe its just because they're young. It's like Egyptian pictures with pharoahs made out to look like gods but they weren't so different from everybody else in real life.
    Or am I just paranoid...

    Not sure if this fits in anywhere but I figured this is the spot to place it...

    There are 13 faeries named in the book...

    1. Pickensrooters = 14 letters

    2. Kootenstoopits = 14 letters

    3. Flower Faeries = 13 letters

    4. Spriggans = 9 letters

    5. Darklings = 9 letters

    6. Skrileers = 9 letters

    7. Yarthkins = 9 letters

    8. Spiggans = 8 letters

    9. Halfling = 8 letters

    10. Urchins = 7 letters

    11. Boggles = 7 letters

    12. Wraiths = 7 letters

    13. Dobies = 6 letters

    They are all plural because there was more than one of each in the book except of course the Halfling .. Ana... Is there anyway that anyone can see us fitting perhaps some of these into the box or grid that we are working on... I do believe that one of the lines in the poem said something to the effect " the Faeries will show you where to go" or " The faeries with names in hand" Don't have my notes in front of me but it sounds like maybe each fairy with its name will show us where to go. I will try to put them in the order that they appear in the book to see if anything comes of it... Anyone one have any other ideas how these might fit in?... Like I said.. Don't know if they are important but it can't hurt to have a list available... Denise

    It's interesting to me, that some pairs share many of the same letters.
    *Maybe* we're to look at the leftover letters?

    For example, between PICKENSROOTERS and KOOTENSTOOPITS, the letters left over are TOOTCRER.

    You focusing on SPIGGANS and SPRIGGANS (leftover R) drew my attention to this.

    This is far out, but 'dobies' is an anagram of 'bodies'


    Spriggans and Spiggans- take out the letter that differs them

    Spiggans and Spiggans- Take out all letters that repeat in the same word

    pian and pian- anagram it

    Pain and Pain

    Bodies?!?!?!

    Pain?!?!?!?!?



    I think i thought it over too much, but at leats it's practice for relaventstuff...
    Or am I just paranoid...

    *Of course*
