8 The Fourth Doll


Sage - a wise old mansage (wise old man), presented a prince with a set of three small dolls. As you would have thought, the prince was not amused. Am I a girl that you give me dolls?, he asked.

This is a gift for a future king, said the sage. If you look carefully, you’ll see a hole in the ear of each doll. The sage handed him a piece of string. Pass it through each doll., he said.
