Annotation

A story for children about the Kingdom of Progressia, which is based on rationality, equality, and freedom but has no fantasy, color, trees, grass, birds, and so forth. Children have no toys. The King and Queen live in a house the same as everyone else and must hold down regular jobs like everyone else. The Fairy Morgana creates a fairy tale setting in the center of the city that only believers can see. Conflict arises between those who can see it and those who can’t, and they divide into two cities.
