In the flat above Coraline’s, under the roof, was a crazy old man with a big mustache. He told Coraline that he was training a mouse circus. He wouldn’t let anyone see it.
“One day, little Caroline, when they are all ready, everyone in the whole world will see the wonders of my mouse circus. You ask me why you cannot see it now. Is that what you asked me?”
“No,” said Coraline quietly, “I asked you not to call me Caroline. It’s Coraline.”
“The reason you cannot see the mouse circus,” said the man upstairs, “is that the mice are not yet ready and rehearsed. Also, they refuse to play the songs I have written for them. All the songs I have written for the mice to play go oompah oompah. But the white mice will only play toodle oodle, like that. I am thinking of trying them on different types of cheese.”
A sweet combination of vanilla spun sugar and freshly-popped buttered popcorn.
• All candles are hand poured and made using the highest quality soy wax, fragrances and inks. • Soy wax is environmentally friendly and burns cleaner than other waxes. It is also easy to clean in case you would like to keep the tin. • Frosting/bloom may occur. This is perfectly natural for soy candles and does not affect the scent or burn time in any way. Frosting is merely an indicator of natural soy wax. • Each candle is made in small batches so there may be very minor variations in color and/or scent. • Our candles use zinc and lead free cotton wicks, all natural soy wax, and only the finest Phthalate-free fragrances. We load them up with the maximum amount of fragrance for both a strong hot and cold throw.
