During the night something strange has happened to Eli. He stirs to consciousness only to feel all prickly. His foggy mind is wondering who put all these sticks in his bed. As he tries to stand up, sticks stab his bare feet. Ouch! What?
As he begins to climb out of his prickly confines, he stops to take a look around, and is startled at what he sees. Tree tops. Pines, oaks, etc. How is it that he is standing in a giant bird nest at the top of a tree?
Oh no, he thought, I'm not standing in a giant bird nest. It's much worse. I am six inches tall, standing in a normal bird nest at the top of a tree. Help!!!
When Eli finally did wake up, he found bits of twigs between his toes and a feather in his hair.
