Yonderfel is a generous king who lives on amountain and never ever turns anyone away from his castle. But when an ogre takes away half the mountain, leaving the castle teetering on the edge, all the people leave and nothing can convince them to come back.

One day it begins to rain, and the rain fills the valley where the people have been living. And then they remember Yonderfel, the king who lives high on a mountain in a very dry castle, and who never ever turns anyone away

Jean Gralley's wry humor shines off every page, warmly inviting readers to enjoy the tale of Yonderfel and his castle.
