This is a good attempt to translate GGE into contemporary circumstances. Rosie wakes up one day to find a magical gift from her Aunt Luisa. "Press the red button for a piece of candy every day!" Lots of different candy came out of the machine for her, day after day. One day, Rosie shares the candy with her brother Marco. He suggests that they open the machine. "I'll bet it's full of candy!" They got tools and open the machine. No candy! Alas, they could then not fit the pieces of the machine back together. "We had something magical. And now we have nothing." A telling of the traditional story follows along with questions for reflection and discussion.
