inform 7: book problem

[code]After looking in the book for “cats”: say “Do you mean the play or the animal? Im going to assume you mean the animal. cats are small soft furry creatures”

After looking in the book for “horses”: say “horses are wonderful four legged creatures.”[/code]

This does’nt work why not?

If you’re trying to create a book in which the player can look up various topics, I think the way to do it is to set up a table of topics and responses, and use the “consult” command to look up the various topics and refer to the table. I seem to recall that Jim Aikin’s book has a good discussion, with examples, of how to do this.
