“Maze of Words” finds Oliver, Celia and Eugene lost in an enormous maze of books. They’ve arrived there after a dark and slippery ride down the digestive track of Dhor Manchewar, the goblin gatekeeper of the library.
After delivering the children, Dhor leaves them with directions to the Reading Room where they can expect to find Arthur.
Following Dhor’s somewhat cryptic direction, Oliver, Celia and Eugene set out through the formidable labyrinth of towering bookshelves.
But a wrong turn takes them into a forbidden place where worn bookshelves sag under the weight of tattered books, and a thick fog swirls and eddies through the corridors.
From among the swirling shadows, the children hear a small, weak voice coming from under a large section of bookcase which has fallen into the corridor.
Oliver follows the voice down the blocked passageway, and with the help of Eugene and Oliver pulls a small creature from beneath the small mountain of books. Just as the creature breaks free, a huge bookcase crashes down, shaking the ground and causing books, papers, and dust to rain down from the giant shelves surrounding them.
The unusual creature reveals himself to be Felix Dandy MacBurbit, a resident of Burbittown.
Felix, as it turns out, has a few tricks up his sleeve. With their new found friend in the lead, the children enter a cavern‐like section of the library — and a way out of the maze which will take them to the Reading Room and Arthur.
