    Default P98 Return of creatures

    The description of the return of the creatures that used to be jewels is similar to the description of their mates on p 34 with some interesting differences. The creatures are grouped the same way, but there is no mention of the ant and the butterfly. The beetle is mentioned twice. Also, the description is awkward, with a lot of commas and the three dots. Could the commas be indicating something?

    Mr. Stadther has said that the beetle twice is REALLY a typo.

    I think I saw it at the top of these forums, but I know I saw a thread about it on the other site.

    Maybe the proofreaders were pretty burned out by then... ?

    Default Tripple dots

    The tripple dots are probably just there because snail is supposed to be speaking slowly EXCEPT for on page 98. Then, in the middle of a typical paragraph, there are three dots again. I know MS has said the duplicate beetle is a typo, and I believe that to be true. But why put three dots (to show delay?) in the middle of this paragraph? I'm not convinced that they are there to show a pause of some sort between the enterance of the snail/bee and the dragonfly/spider. Why describe the first few sets of creatures to enter, then pause, then describe the remaining sets? It feels odds.

    The ellipses are generally used when something is left out of a quote. So maybe it is just a subtle heads up that something has been left out (which there has been )

    Something has been left out. Ant is there, but .... Butterfly I do not see.
