“We work at a publishing house,” said Courtney. “So we should make it out of book pages!”

Mitali was skeptical. “But we love books. Why would we want to destroy them?”

“Not destroy,” Courtney assured. “Recycle!”

Or were they?

“No, not to me,” Mitali said. “I mean, this is distressing—the book pages!”

 

“Now we just roll them into cylinders and staple them to a piece of cardboard.”

 And an hour later . . .
