Scribbledehobbledehoyden: The Magpie's Eye: Page 97


* * Dala Horse -- A thing in the forest which pursues them.

"Why doesn't it come?"

Because it has absorbed her parents -- the Dala Horse told him -- and they are able to drag it back. 

"How could such a thing be?"

Long ago the Swedes prepared.

But it is digesting them.  And when it does . . .

That is why it howls.

All the above is a kind of shorthand for a conversation within "The Dala Horse" which I ended up not using.  But the idea of a thing pursuing Linnea and her troll I kept.
