Through a magical trade, the children have parted with an object they hold dear, in exchange for a promise from Madame Pinchbeck to use her powers to help them. But she has deceived them, instead using her dark magic to turn the children’s objects into vanishing cabinets that she can summon them from, and banish them to, at will
