Through the fern glade and deeper within the woodland realm lies a miniature world within our own--a world where magic exists, and existence is the very essence of magic itself. The bogy called Poe comes from the muddy banks of Toad Bog, a place protected by huge ugly toads that serve the bogy realm. For the bogies are shadow creatures, skilled with hexes and charms, like the one Poe enchanted her pet spider with. It hitches a ride on her dress and repairs her rips and tears with silken web, while Poe guards the realm from intruders. Let Poe be a reminder that shadow and darkness help us better see the light.
