Excerpt 1:

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (of course, back then, with no cars, everything over a few miles was far, far away!) there was a beautiful kingdom named Cloveland.  Cloveland got its name from all of the fields of green clovers that grew there, and the land was always filled with the sweet smell of the leaves. And, with all of those four leaf clovers scattered in the fields, it brought the kingdom good luck…at least for a while.

Cloveland was governed by King Stefan.  King Stefan was a kindly man, with the frizziest mane of hair anybody had ever seen.  He was tall and very muscular, with blue eyes as deep as the night sky.  Everyone who ever met King Stefan said that he reminded them of a lion in the form of a man (and King Stefan liked this comparison very much!).  The king had a wonderful smile when he used it, but unfortunately he did not smile very often.  That’s because King Stefan was a lonely man, with no Queen to share his life with.
 
One day, King Stefan called in his Royal Advisor, Gregory. Gregory was more than just an advisor to the king, he was King Stefan’s best friend.  Gregory always laughed at all of the king’s jokes (even the bad ones) and did his best to keep the king cheerful.  Gregory had a wonderful laugh, a big belly, rosy cheeks, a nose the size of a small balloon, and the longest beard in the kingdom.  It was rumored that a whole family of elves lived in his beard, but no one could confirm it.

“If I do not find a wife soon, Gregory, I will surely die of loneliness!  My poor heart grieves for someone to love.”

“Your majesty,” said Gregory, “I will do all I can to help you find a Queen, I swear it!”
