The women tell the children that there father isn't on this planet (Uriel). Instead, they stopped here to rest, as well as to show them something. Mrs. Which then tells Mrs. Whatsit to “show them.” Mrs. Whatsit begins to transform herself out of her old body and into an indescribable creature, best pictured as a horse with wings. When Calvin falls to his knees to worship the thing, Mrs. Whatsit tells him to never do that to her. The children climb onto the back of the creature and they begin to fly.
