    Hi everyone! I don't quite understand "the book to be placed perfectly in the center of the comic" here. I interpreted it as "the small copy of Grimm’s selected fairy tales to be placed perfectly in the center of the dog-eared Magneto comic". Is it right?

    the context is as follows:
    ===
    For an entire year, during the worst of his mother's illness, he carried the same items from his bedroom to the kitchen first thing in the morning, and then back again last thing at night: a small copy of Grimm's selected fairy tales and a dog-eared Magnet comic, the book to be placed perfectly in the center of the comic, and both to be laid with their edges lined up against the corner of the rug on his bedroom floor at night or on the seat of his favorite kitchen chair in the morning. In these ways, David made his contribution to his mother's survival.
