Transcript of Haroun and the sea of stories

Study Guide Haroun and the Sea of Stories BY; Katie Young and Sammy Goyette This chapter takes place in the the country of Alifbay, in the city that is so sad that it forgot its name. A family of three, Rashid Khalifa, Rashids wife Soraya Khalifa, and there son Haroun Khalifa live in this city. One day Haroun's mother Soraya, who loved to sing, stopped singing. Rashid was so busy with his career of telling stories that he hadn't noticed. Soraya became so upset that she left with the man upstairs. Soraya left at 11;00. making her son not able to do anything past 11 minutes. Rashid could no longer tell stories. Every time he went to tell a story, nothing came out. Rashid was invited to preform in the town of G near by the valley of K, Rashid decided to go seeming that it was glumly raining all the time. The town of G and the valley of K was said to be the most fascinating place, so off they went. Unfortunatly once they where there and Rashid went up to the stage, he could not find the words of his stories even though they where no longer in the nameless city. People of the town of G where not pleased, but Rashid promised to make it up to them in the valley of K. Off they went to the valley of K Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 4 Chapter 5 Chapter 3 Summary Haroun pushed through the crowd towards to balcony where his father stood with prince Bolo, general Kitab and the King. When Haroun got to the Balcony he shouted to his dad first asking what on earth he was doing here then to everyone else telling them that he is not a spy but only his father. The whole crowd looked at Haroun in amazement. Prince Bolo order one of the pages named blabbermouth to show Haroun to his room while they question his father. Rashid told everyone his story of how he wished in his dream to be here in the gup city but he ended up on the twilight strip and while he was there he witnessed princess batcheat being kidnapped. meanwhile blabbermouth led Haroun through all sorts of halls and passage-rooms. On there way blabbermouths hat is knocked off and Haroun discovers that blabbermouth his a girl not a boy. Blabbermouth explains that girls are not aloud to be a page so he needs to keep his mouth shut. Blabbermouth brought Haroun up to the roof top of the palace and showed Haroun her hidden talent of juggling, juggling so many balls that it reminded Haroun much of his father juggling stories. When Haroun woke up many hours later he was in a huge room but what he noticed first was blabbermouths hands around his neck. blabbermouth was simply reminded him not to say a word. Then blabbermouth was off to line up for war. Chapter 6 Summary Haroun travels with the Land of Gup's army. The army is traveling to the twilight strip to seek revenge on the Chupwalas for kidnapping their princess and polluting the sea of stories. The army has a way of ranking their soldiers, the lowest rank in the army are known as the pages. The middle class rank in the army are known as the Chapters, and the highest ranked members in the army are known as Volumes. As the army enters the twilight strip, they move to a small open space, where they see a man who looks "almost like a shadow and who held a sword whose blade was dark as night." (Page 123). As they approach, they see that this is a man fighting his own shadow. Chapter 7 Summary The people of Chup do not feel the same as their leader, Khattam Shud. They would much rather have peace, and happiness but their ruler controls everything. The Chupwalas live their lives in fear, which is why nothing changes. Khattam Shud's black magic has made his shadow separate from him. His shadow may go wherever it wishes, if the Guppies defeat Khattam Shud himself, they defeat his shadow too. The Guppie army decides that they need to try to get Princess Bacheat back from Khattam-Shud's before they go to the Old Zone to try to save the Sea of Stories. Haroun volunteers to go spy on Khattam-Shud in the Old Zone. His reasoning for volunteering is "All my life I've heard about the wonderful Sea of Stories, and Water Genies, and everything... it turns out it may be too late, because the whole Ocean's going to be dead any minute if we don't do something... As I say I only just started believing in the Ocean, but maybe it isn't too late for me to do my bit."(Page 137). Prince Bolo is so incredibly surprised and says "is this not the perfect fellow for the job? For he is, like me, a slave of Love." (Page 137). So Haroun, Mali the Gardener, Butt the Hoopoe, Iff the Water Genie, and the Plentimaw Fish all start their journey towards the Old Zone. As they are sailing along their journey, the water becomes too poisonous for the Plentimaw Fish to continue on, so they stay behind. The path they are taking starts to become harder and harder to get through, so Iff makes a path in front of them, and suddenly they get trapped under a net, called the Web of Night. Chapter 8 Summary They are getting pulled in to darkness, the water becomes more and more poisonous as they move closer and closer to the darness. They all believe that their journey is over and they have failed. But instead they reach a huge ship. Haroun and Iff are led onto the ship, but Butt the Hoopoe is held behind. And Mali was nowhere to be seen. As they look back they see that men have taken out the circuit box in his brain and he just lay there, limp. Then Iff hands Haroun a bite-a-lite, a small tube shaped figure that will let out two minutes of light. They continue walking on the ship and looking around, they see huge cauldrons on the deck, all containing the poison. Haroun and Iff are pushed in front of a set of doors, as the doors are pushed open, "a skinny, scrawny measly, weaselly, snivelling, clerical type, exactly like all the others." (Page 153) came out and all of the Chupwalas on the ship began to bow at him. This was Khattam-Shud. Haroun can not help but to notice that the edges of Khattam-Shud looked rather blurry, this was the shadow of Khattam-Shud. The cult master looks at Haroun and asks "What brought you up here, eh?" (Page 155). Haroun responds with "Stories I suppose."(Page 155). Khattam- Shud then proceeds to say "Well look where stories have landed you now... You'd have done better to keep your feet on the ground but you had your head in the air. You'd have done better to stick to Facts, but you were stuffed with stories... Stories make trouble. An Ocean of Stories is and Ocean of Trouble." (Page 155). Haroun recognized him and he thought it was Mr Sengupta, the man who took his mother away. Khattam- Shud commanded his men to bring them through the doors. Chapter 9 Summary As Haroun and Iff are lead into the interior of the ship, there is nothing but darkness. Then the cultmaster turns on a switch adding a small amount of light. Now they could somewhat see, but all of the Chupwalas were putting on their dark glasses. There are machines "far too complicated to describe" all around them. Khattam-Shud explains to them that the use of these machines is to ruin each story, but each type of story had to be ruined differently. "To ruin a happy story, you much make it sad. To ruin an action drama, you must make it move too slowly. To ruin a mystery you must make the criminals identity obvious even to the most stupid audience. To ruin a love story, you must turn it into a tale of hate. To ruin a tragedy you must make it capable of inducing helpless laughter." (Page 160). Then they proceeded to be shown to where the plug was being built. The plug was located underneath the ship, and stream of stories was there, more and more new stories kept coming out at all times, but if there was a plug no more stories could be made up or put into the sea of stories. Then they come across a lilac- colored flower, Mali was still alive. Then all of a sudden, Mali swoops in the ship and before the Chupwallas are able to turn on the dark bulbs, Mali is able to locate the generator. He wraps himself around the generator, getting in every crack and crevice. The generator stops. Everything stops. Haroun Bites the Bite-a-lite and allof the Chupwallas are blinded, all screaming. Haroun goes for Butt the Hoopoe's brain box and ran to get the protective clothing needed to dive down to the plug. He dives down but realizesthat he could save the Ocean of Stories if he removed the plug. But it was far too large, the he remembers he had the wish water! So he swims back up to where Butt the Hoopoe is lying, and he plugs in his brain box. Then he drinks the wish water and said "I wish this moon, Kahani, to turn so that it is no longer half in light and half in darkness . . . I wish it to turn, this very instant, in such a way that the sun shines down on the Dark Ship, the full, hot, noonday sun." (Page 170-171) Then his wish came true! The ship, and every Chupwalla in and on the ship were all shadows, all became to melt. They started to head home. But Butt the Hoopoes brain was broken and could not bring them back. Chapter 10 Summary The war with the rest of the army, to save princess Batcheat continues on for not much longer, until a band of ambassadors from the land of Chup carrying a white flag of truce. Then the ambassador tells them that princess Batcheat has been torturing all of them with her singing and he has had to entertain her his his juggling. So the ambassador starts to demonstrate his juggling, and while doing so he adds in a bomb. But Blabbermouth notices and catches it, and throws it over a cliff as it explodes. Blabbermouth's head gear falls off and her hair falls down for everyone to see she is actually a female. The organization of the Guppees pays off for them in the battle, but the Chups lack of communication does harm them immensely. And the Guppees win the war. Prince Bolo searches for Princess Batcheat and finds her singing, he thinks her singing is beautiful, while everyone else does not. Then all of a sudden, the moon of Kahani begins to spin and the ground start to shake and then the Great Statue of Bezaban falls onto Khattam-Shud and he is killed. Peace has been declared. The new ruler of Chup is Mudra. Blabbermouth becomes the interpreter and ambassador for the two lands. When Haroun and his men arrive back, they each are looked up to as heroes. "Iff was named chief Water Genie; Mali was names Head Floating Gardener; and Goopy and Bagha were appointed leaders of all the Plentimaw Fishes in the Sea." (Page 192). Butt the Hoopoe got his brain back to normal. Haroun got to be back with his father. Princess Batcheat and Prince Bolo got married. Then Haroun was called forth by the Walrus because he wanted to speak to Haroun for destroying so much machinery.
