Maggy is an artist.  She sees things that most don't.  "Everything I see as I sit here goes into my sketchbook, made alive again in a different way, like a fairy tale I tell myself: tourists, skwatters, bicycle copes, winos and shoopers with dogs, all traslated into giants and magic bikes and stop signs that talk, princess-girls with no faces, reptile-boys who steal purses and guzzle down the coins.  Anything can happen in "The Blue Mirror," anything I want."  But when Cole enters Maggy's world, things change rapidly.
