Three tales of wit and wonder from the children's classic author of 'The Phantom Tollbooth'. Unlikely hero Alberic is on a seemingly endless search for wisdom. He learns much along the way but will his journey ever satisfy him? In the second tale, a boy is drawn to a mysterious painting of a princess far away who's left bereft of her kingdom. Can he be the knight in shining armour and win back her lands? And then meet the richest monarch in the world...and the poorest, as they discover the true worth of wealth. Fascinating fables from a classic storyteller overflowing with humour and wit.
