Plot Edit

In a library, the librarian notices a book hanging off a shelf, and goes to push it back in. Behind her, a different book falls off a shelf, and she heads to pick it up. More books begin to fall, and the librarian notices animals running around in the library. As entire shelves worth of books begin to fly off, the librarian starts to run, until she find plants extending across the front of shelves. She notices that just on the other side of the shelves, there is a jungle filled with many species of animals.[2]
