Magic buttons

Symbolic for opening and closing, coming and going, the magic buttons are given to the Chatwin children at the end of the fifth Fillory novel, “The Wandering Dune”. The magic buttons are saturated with magic, and enable individuals to freely travel between Fillory and Earth. Buttons open and close seams – and open and close the seams between dimensions.

The Chatwin children divide over the buttons, some believing they should be used, with others believing they are too powerful, and that going to Fillory has to be earned. The buttons are ultimately hidden, but found one at a time by Martin Chatwin as he slowly becomes the Beast. By the events of the novel, Martin needs to locate two more buttons to control them all – one sold to Penny by Lovelady for $80,000, and which Quentin, Penny, Alice, and the others use to travel to Fillory.
