We are right in the middle of the story of Caliph Stork, with the Caliph and his Vizier now stuck in stork form. This is because they laughed and the magic word to change them back is forgotten!
The story continues with "The Captive Owl."
from Andrew Lang's The Green Fairy Book, "The Story of Caliph Stork" illustrated by H.J. Ford
This strange "Captive Owl" is about to bring magic and, yes, even romance to our story. Watch for it in two days as our story nears its conclusion. Because the final two sections are slightly smaller, I've decided to combine them.
