Long ago and far away there was a castle—but not just any castle. This was a castle that glittered and sparkled and rose majestically above the banks of the winding Winono River: the Castle Corona.

Far below this grand, glittering castle lived two peasants—but not just any peasants. These peasants, though poor and pitiful, were plucky and proud … and in possession of a stolen pouch—but not just any pouch. It was a pouch whose very contents had the power to unlock secrets and transform lives.
