Then I get very, very hot all over.. Then the tip of the forefinger of my right hand begins to tingle most terribly.. And suddenly a sort of flash comes out of me, a quick flash, like something electric.
It jumps out and touches the person who has made me cross.. And after that the Magic Finger is upon him or her, and things begin to happen..
Well, the Magic Finger was now upon the whole of the Gregg family, and there was no taking it off again. I ran home and waited for things to happen.

They happened fast. I shall now tell you what those things were.
I got the whole story from Philip and William the next morning, after it was all over. This time they were going after wild ducks, so they headed towards the lake. In the next hour they got another six. Just then four more wild ducks flew over their heads. They were flying very low.
They were easy to hit. The ducks flew on. They arc really asking for it this time! So did the boys.
And again they all missed! Mr Gregg got very red in the face. Let's go home. But the four ducks would not leave them alone. They now began flying around and around the hunters as they walked away. Mr Gregg did not like it one bit. He simply could not hit them. All the way home those four ducks flew around in the sky above their heads, and nothing would make them go away.
Late that night, after Philip and William had gone to bed, Mr Gregg went outside to get some wood for the fire.
He was crossing the yard when all at once he heard the call of a wild duck in the sky.

He stopped and looked up. The night was very still. There was a thin yellow moon over the trees on the hill, and the sky was filled with stars. Then Mr Gregg heard the noise of wings flying low over his head, and he saw the four ducks, dark against the night sky, flying very close together.
They were going around and around the house. Mr Gregg forgot about the firewood, and hurried back indoors. He was now quite afraid. He did not like what was going on. But he said nothing about it to Mrs Gregg.
All he said was, 'Come on, let's go to bed. I feel tired. He opened his eyes.
He was about to put out a hand for his watch, to see the time. But his hand wouldn't come out.
Maybe he had hurt that hand in some way? He tried the other hand. That wouldn't come out either. He sat up. Then, for the first time, he saw what he looked like! He gave a yell and jumped out of bed. Mrs Gregg woke up. And when she saw Mr Gregg standing there on the floor, she gave a yell, too.
For he was now a tiny little man! He was maybe as tall as the seat of a chair, but no taller. And where his arms had been, he had a pair of duck's wings instead! It was Mrs Gregg's turn now to jump out of bed.

She ran to look at herself in the glass. But she was not tall enough to see into it. She was even smaller than Mr Gregg, and she, too, had got wings instead of arms. And both of them started running around the room, flapping their wings. A minute later Philip and William burst in. The same thing had happened to them.
They had wings and no arms. And they were really tiny. They were about as big as robins. The two tiny boys were now high up in the sky. Then Mrs Gregg did the same. Soon the whole family was flying around and around together.
I've always wanted to know what it feels like to be a bird! The ducks were as big as men, and what is more, they had great long arms, like men, instead of wings. The ducks were walking in a line to the door of the Grcggs' house, swinging their arms and holding their beaks high in the air. That's my house! The first one put out a hand and opened the door of the house and went in.
The others went in after him. The door shut. The Greggs flew down and sat on the wall near the door.

Mrs Gregg began to cry. What shall we do? We have no place to go! Follow me. That won't help us. Shall I tell you what we arc going to do? Mr Gregg looked at them and smiled.
Off you go, all of you, and find them and bring them back here. Soon they were back, carrying sticks in their mouths. Mr Gregg took the sticks and started to build the nest. Keep going. Mr Gregg was very good at making the sticks stick together. Nov I want leaves and feathers and things like that to make the inside nice and soft. It took a long time. But at last it was finished.
He was very pleased with his work. And what fun to be living so high up,' said Philip. And off they went. But when they got to the house, they found all the windows and doors closed. There was no way in.
We shall never get it back. And what are we going to eat? Mrs Gregg took the two boys under her wings and hugged them.
