Alberic the Wise : and other journeys by Norton Juster( Book )

13 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three tales of wonder each is a quest, and what is found is far different and far more strange than what is sought. The first, is the story of Alberic and his endless search for wisdom. After a lifetime of wandering adventure he finds it at last-only to discover that it was not what he thought it would be. The second, is the skillfully woven story of a boy who has no illusions and a sad princess who has no kingdom. But he lives here and now and she looks out from the frame of a beautiful renaissance painting. What they find together is told in a story in which present and past, reality and dream are masterfully combined. The last, is the story of the richest monarch in the world, and the poorest. Magnus the Abundant and RNP. One is unhappy, for he suspects that someone somewhere might have more, the other miserable because he is sure that no one anywhere could have less. Each makes a journey to see for himself, and what they discover is as amusing as it is unexpected
