She finds the old man frustrated that he can't make the magical book work. It's take someone younger - someone for whom the walls between this world and the next are a little thinner. They catch a whiff of fresh bread, and are transported to the world of Catherynne M. Valente's fable "The Bread We Eat in Dreams," where a certain personable demon named Agnes will recount the story of her ejection from hell and the little hamlet that grew up around her.
