Samantha transported herself into the Hansel and Gretel storybook.

Teleportation is the magical ability to move physical items, another person or oneself from one place or time to another. It is known colloquially as popping in and popping out.

Moving to another place is also known as zonking across the atmospheric continuum.[1] The ability is also used to enter objects like pictures and storybooks. Banishing spells are another form of teleportation.
