READ INSIDE THIS BOOK

There once lived a wealthy merchant who owned a grand house several leagues from the Citadel of Montsuelo, at the furthest tip of the Kingdom. One spring morning the whole household was astir, preparing for the merchant's journey to the Palace of the King.

"Another long journey," sighed his wife.

"How can you look so sad!" exclaimed the merchant. "This is the greatest honour! To receive a royal invitation to Court! Just think of it!"

"But, dearest, I've heard some disturbing rumours," whispered his wife.

"Rumours? What rumours?"

"They say that the King is preparing to invade the neighbouring Kingdom of Valerdia."

"Nonsense!" replied the merchant. "Wherever did you hear such nonsense?"

"All the richest merchants in the land have been invited to the Palace, you say. Perhaps the King is going to ask them to furnish the great army he needs."

"Shhhhh, my dear lady," said the merchant, seeming a little flustered, "I beg you not to trouble your sweet sweet head with such weighty matters of state."

"Well, why else must you travel to the Palace with your chest full of gold?"

"I have no time now, my dear!" said her husband, throwing up his hands impatiently. "Make haste with your preparations! I must leave at once, or I shall surely arrive too late."
