'I need your help! I made a terrible mistake and listened to Isembard and Imbert, my fool cousins. You see, old Adelard is always lecturing us young Tooks on the history of the family, and well, it does get tiring. My cousins decided to play a trick on him and convinced me to sneak away with the latest chapter Adelard wrote for the Yearbook of Tuckborough.

'Now I'm worried about the trouble I'm going to get into! Isembard, though, went out to get the chapter from where he hid it, but hasn't returned yet!

'I think he said he hid it in a tall tree east of the Great Smials in Tuckborough. Could you go there and see what is taking him so long?'

Background

Pervinca Took made the mistake of helping her cousins Isembard and Imbert play a trick on the aged Adelard Took. Pervinca sneaked off with the chapter he wrote for the Yearbook of Tuckborough, and Isembard hid it.

Objective 1

Pervinca thought her cousins Isembard and Imbert Took could be found near the Great Willow east of the Great Smials in Tuckborough.

Pervinca asked you to find her cousins Isembard and Imbert, who went to retrieve Adelard's chapter of the Yearbook, and see what is taking him so long.

Pervinca Took: 'Isembard and Imbert should be near that big willow east of the Great Smials in Tuckborough. Please hurry, I don't know how long it'll be until Adelard discovers that his chapter is missing!'
Isembard Took II says, "Wish that silly branch hadn't broke!"
Isembard Took II says, "Come on Imbert, think!"
Isembard Took II says, "I could stand on your shoulders...."
Isembard Took II says, "We could wait for a windstorm...."
Isembard Took II says, "What if you boosted me up?"
Isembard Took II says, "How high can you jump?"
Isembard Took II says, "It's all Adelard's fault, really...."
Isembard Took II says, "Perhaps we can get Pervinca to help...."
Imbert Took: 'Oh, good day to you! Are you here about that chapter of Adelard's as well? Best be talking to Isembard, he's the smarter of us two! I'm just here to lend him a hand, if I can.'
Isembard Took II: 'What? Pervinca sent a Bounder out here? She is such a worrier! There's nothing to fear, old Imbert and me will have the chapter of Adelard's in two shakes.
'See, we hid the chapter in a satchel in the tree, but the branch we climbed up on broke off. We have been here scratching our heads on how to get it down...but you just gave me a grand idea!'
Isembard Took II says, "See Imbert, I'll just knock the satchel out of the tree with a stone!"
Imbert Took says, "I don't know, Isembard...what if you miss?"
Isembard Took II says, "Oh, don't worry, I won't miss!"
Isembard Took II says, "Here, watch!"
Isembard Took II says, "Seems I hit a hive...."
Isembard Took II says, "Bees!"
Imbert Took says, "Oh no!"
Isembard Took II says, "Thank you!"
Isembard Took II says, "All right, now I can't miss!"
Imbert Took says, "Isembard, wait...."
Isembard Took II says, "Here, watch!"
Imbert Took says, "Looks like you got the hive, fortunately the bees are gone!"
Isembard Took II says, "Oh no! Look!"
Isembard Took II says, "Bears!"
Imbert Took says, "Thank goodness!"
Isembard Took II says, "This time for sure!"
Imbert Took says, "Isembard! No!"
Isembard Took II says, "Don't worry!"
Isembard Took II says, "See! Here's the satchel! Let me get Adelard's chapter...."
Imbert Took says, "Thank goodness!"
Isembard Took II says, "I had it under control all the time!"
Isembard Took II says, "Here friend, take this back to Pervinca for me!"
Isembard Took II says, "Come on Imbert, now that we are done here, let's see if we can find old Peregrin!"
Imbert Took says, "I've not seen him for some days. I wonder where he's gotten off to?"
You have protected Isembard and Imbert Took
Collected Adelard's chapter

Objective 2

Bring Adelard's chapter back to Pervinca Took in the Great Smials.

Having survived Isembard's grand idea for getting the satchel with Adelard's chapter down from the tree, you finally have the chapter in hand to bring back to Pervinca.

Imbert Took: 'I thought that satchel would never fall from the tree. But, fortunately, old Isembard's plan worked. I always said he was the smarter of the two of us, and this just proves it again!'
Isembard Took II: 'See, I told you we'd have that satchel out of the tree quick enough! You'd best take it to Pervinca.
'Still, I wish we had hung on to it a bit longer…we're sure to hear another of old Adelard's speeches now.'
Pervinca Took: 'Good, you've found it! Now to sneak this back into the library before Adelard notices it's gone missing. My thanks! You've saved me from a host of troubles!'
