Fairy Tale Collection: Faithful John

Prince Martin’s people are being oppressed by the gold-greedy dwarf Aurus. To free his people the Prince has to seize the source of the dwarf’s power, the beautiful Mahalena, who has been turned into a golden statue. Accompanied only by his man-servant, Faithful John, and with an inherited and battered royal crown, the Prince sets out in the dangerous journey to rescue Mahalena, who the Prince also wants to make his wife. The secret of the old crown, which allows its wearer to look into the future, is known only to Faithful John. But whoever reveals its secret turns to stone. After rescuing Mahalena, on their journey home, even greater adventures await the trio than on the outward journey. Mahalena is bitten by a poisonous snake, Faithful John is turned into stone and Prince Martin almost sacrifices himself…
