When Jeremy and Jemima Potts are hiding in the Toymaker’s
cellar the Childcatcher dances through the streets harking
about “free” chocolate, cherry pies, treacle tarts, ice cream
and other goodies. Jeremy is entranced and runs out to the
street, despite Truly warning the twins not to leave until she
had returned (she was out shopping for food). Jemima followed
against her better judgement, and both of the children followed
the Childcatcher.

The villagers shouted and called for them to come back,
but the Childcatcher lured the children into his cage and
took them to the castle of the Baron and Baroness. The
twins were locked in the tower and awaited their deaths.
