The Two Sides Of Humburg
Follow in the footsteps of the piper, as he discovers a strange new land with some very strange ideas. What will he choose, the bustling modern city, or the quiet country town, and why, oh why, do the two mayors keep putting him in the spotlight? This is a fantasy adventure geared mostly for the little ones, but I hope that adults can enjoy it, too. Rated G by the author. More
Follow in the entertaining footsteps of a wandering minstrel, the beloved piper, as he roams the countryside and comes across a very strange land with some very odd ideas. The big city is named East Humburg, and it has skyscrapers, cars and streetlights, while just across the river lies West Humburg, a small town with quiet people, farms and horse-drawn buggies. Even the bridge that separates the two places is crazy, as half of it is constructed of metal and cement, while the other half is put together with planks and nails!
And just when you though it couldn't get any weirder than that, here come the two mayors, Easton and Weston, who demand that the piper choose which side of Humburg is the best one! What is the piper to do, when the mayors keep putting the spotlight on him? Which side is he going to put above the other, and what do the people really think about all this?
But wait, we're not done yet. Right after this poetic and exciting tale are six of the piper's favorite songs! Read about the King's New Dog, that might not be a dog at all, or head into space with The Frog That Jumped To The Moon. Have you heard about that pirate, the dread Captain Tate, and about him Setting Sail Around The World? Or about The Travelling Birds, who continually search for the perfect, peaceful place, but never quite seem to find it? Read these exciting and funny tales, and a couple more, in the second half of this ebook, The Piper's Tales.
This ebook is a lighthearted fantasy adventure, written in rhyme, and most of the stories contain a short lesson in morality. Some of the other tales are just for fun! Two of the stories contain theological references, one to God, one to angels, but they are brief and in keeping with the overall spirit of the ebook. And while it's aimed at the little ones, ten and under, I hope some of the adults out there enjoy it as well!
