Gnome with Tiger Lilies

Mommy had warned her not to follow
the path into the woods, but Claire wanted so
to be with her fairy friends that she galloped
down the path after the swallowtail fairy.
Suddenly a little man with a funny hat
appeared on the trunk of a fallen tree.
"Your mommy told you not to go this far.
Watch out for the bad fairies!" he sighed.

You may meet an ally or continue on the path:

Take the path deeper into the woods.
Meet a powerful ally.
Meet a scary ally.
Meet a strange ally.
