A little boy looks for something he has lost and guess what happens when he finds it? Read on to find out for yourself.

I do not know why I woke up
so early today,
but soon I saw
that it was a strange new day!
Nothing at all
was as it really should be,
and I could hear
someone shouting loudly at me!
Our cot had climbed
right up the wall,
and my little clock
had grown very tall!
Our umbrella was twirling madly
round and round,
and my red and blue cap
was making a clicking sound!
What on earth has happened
to our little room?
I fear I am going to faint very soon!
The fan
has turned into a big octopus,
and my sister’s doll is eating
lentils and rice without a fuss!
Our cat is sitting up in Dad’s chair
and look!
A mouse is reading the news on the air!
In the mirror –
Aah! Look! I am seven feet high!
I know I am going to loudly cry!
But now look!
Here comes a magic man
“Sorry! Sorry!” he says,
“I will do what I can!”
“Yes, yes!
It was I who made this little mess.
It was not so nice of me,
I do confess!
So Abra-ca-da-dabra chin chin choo!
Room! Get back in order –
one – three – two!
