“The country called Nonamia”
Ever so long ago, in the wonderful country of Nonamia, there lived an absent-minded magician. It is not usual, of course, for a magician to be absent-minded. But, then, if it were usual, it would not have happened in Nonamia. Nobody knew very much about this particular magician, for he lived in his castle in the air and it is not easy to visit anyone who lives in the air. He did not want to be visited, however. Visitors always meant conversation and he could not endure conversation. This, by the way, was not surprising, for he was so absent-minded that he always forgot the end of his sentence before he was half way through the beginning of it. And as for his visitors’ remarks, well, if he had had any visitors, he would never have heard their remarks at all. So when someone did call on him one day, and that was when he had been living in his castle in the air for 777 years and had almost forgotten who he was and why he was there, the magician was so astonished that he could not think of anything to say. “How did you get here?”, he asked at last, for even an absent-minded magician cannot remain altogether silent when he looks out of his castle in the air and sees a princess in a gold and silver frock with a bright little crown on her head, floating about on a soft white cloud.
