A Moorish prince and a beautiful princess...a magic horse and a dusty rug...a dove, an owl and a parrot. Inspired by the wise, witty language of birds, a poetic young man journeys over the high mountains and triumphs in a tournament using ancient magic but can he find happiness in his quest for love? Amanda Hall's sparkling Moorish fantasy has been adapted from a story written by Washington Irving.
