There’s a castle up there in the sky, held aloft by wizardry and dreams. It’s the home of the most curious court in all the land; a place of queens and princes, scholars and bards, sylphs and scullery maids—not to mention the Wizard himself.

Come visit. You’re as like as not to find the princess in the kitchens, spinning subtleties out of sugar. The wizard’s in his study, consulting with the spell-books, and the furniture. The king’s in the gardens with his roses; the queen is in her solar, where the plants, dream-woven, grow in every shape and colour.

Meet Jessamine, a small dragon with a heart the size of the castle itself. Meet Paglar the cook, Tambul, the wizard’s apprentice; the best-of-all-chairs, and the wizard’s favourite carpet. Meet the sylphs, causing havoc in the Potionery. 

It’s the mad Court at Castle Chansany and everyone is welcome. Tea’s served at three, and there’s a banquet after. Don’t be late!
