Hear, There Be Dragons
A castle, dragons, and bullwhips… oh, my! This tale takes place off the edge of the map in the fictional world of Castle Alphabet where the head horse wrangler, Will O’ The Whisper, can’t bring the unruly new stallion to heel. Engaging the help of the mystical groundskeeper Alcuvius, Will discovers that the horse is not ill-tempered but hard of hearing. But just when resolution seems at hand, Debby the Dragon makes her Fiery appearance.
