They opened the door and climbed a ladder to the top of the magic tree. At the top there was a hole. They were in The Arctic Land.
They saw a cub who was weeping. Emma asked the cub, 'Why are you sad?'
'Because I've lost my mummy,' replied the cub.
'Don't be sad, we will find her.'
'Thanks,' said the cub.
So they got on the sledge and whizzed off.
Soon, they got to a cave and they saw a mummy snow bear weeping.
'Go to your mummy,' said Emma and Ben.
Then they got on the sledge and went back to the tree. They climbed down the ladder and went home.
