Summary

Digory ends up ashore a pool, about 10 x 10 feet wide.  There is soft green light everywhere. There are trees so leafy, that the sky cannot be seen.  The wood, the forest, is so quiet, one can almost hear the growing of trees and plant life. There are no birds, no insects, no animals, and no wind.  There are dozens of other pools for as far as the eye can see. It is a strange place where all is calm, and nothing happens here.  Digory notices a girl laying at the foot of a tree. They finally realize that they know each other, after thinking they've only just dreamed of each other. It is almost as thought the children are in an inbetween state of being awake and asleep. They attempt to jump in other pools but only splash their ankles with the inches-deep puddles.  They figure out that they need the green rings in order for the magic to work, to leave the wood. Polly points out that they must mark the pool in which they arrived to the wood. Digory realizes he almost made a big mistake in not doing so. So they take each other's hands, count to three and jump!
