From the book
Holly lived with her parents in the city, and every other weekend her family took her to see her grandmother, who lived in a little house in the country. For these visits, Holly put on her play clothes, brushed her long golden hair, and tied it back in a pony tail. It was fun to play in Grandma’s big back yard, where she had a beautiful garden of flowers.
Grandma had irises, daylilies, foxgloves, hollyhocks, lavenders, poppies, and many other lovely flowers. But the most beautiful flowers in the garden were the pink blossoms that covered a big, round rose bush whenever the weather was warm. Grandma told Holly that the rose bush was her pride and joy.
Holly liked to pretend that the rose bush was a secret house where magical people lived. One afternoon, Holly was sprawled out in the grass next to the rose bush, yawning a bit. She had played very hard and was a little sleepy. A bee was collecting pollen, and as she watched and yawned again, the bee became a golden ball of light that flew in and out among the roses.
Holly thought this was a rather odd thing for a bee to do, but she was so sleepy, she could no longer stay awake. As she closed her eyes, she thought she saw dozens of little people playing in the rose bush.
