Come on board the Magic Carpet of Storytelling as it takes us on an adventure of the imagination: We will go on a mountain trek with a team of reporters to investigate the truth of The Temple of Miracles, to the African savannah to witness a conference of two Kings, and back in time to the Renaissance where the genius sculptor, Lorenzo, communicates with stones. We will meet the plucky Princess Karina who has a better trick up her sleeve than the knights who are supposed to save her, and Alphonse, a 6-year old whose dream may change the Circus forever. We will see how a peasant girl's protest reveals the secret of the mighty King Bold, and will even go to a neighborhood near yours to meet a miserable grouch who has a brilliant plan to get happy.
