Long ago, in a time gone by, lived the kind and much beloved King Jason of Funlandia. King Jason began noticing that the people of his kingdom were becoming unhappy; they didn’t laugh much, and certainly didn’t smile enough. He noticed that the grown-ups were so focused on their daily work, that by evening, they were grumpy and tired. The children kept to themselves so as not to upset their parents.
This troubled King Jason immensely.
One night, the King had a dream. It was a dream of his childhood, filled with color, and laughter, and family. His heart swelled with happiness as he ran and jumped and played, once again a little boy.
But when he awoke the next morning, his heart felt heavy and sad.
“I wish the children of my kingdom could enjoy such happiness, and live exciting adventures with their families as I once did.”
He pondered his dilemma many days, each night having the same joyous dream; and each morning awakening with sadness in his heart for all that his loyal subjects were missing out on. He wished he had a magic wand.
“That’s it! We need magic,” King Jason exclaimed. He promptly summoned the great Wizard Cosmo to the castle.
Cosmo was a truly gifted Wizard with wisdom beyond his years. With his vast knowledge of magic and kind and compassionate heart, King Jason knew the Wizard would help him and his people.
