After the huge battle with a leech nest, Abel now has the key to Castle House, a big old house wreathed in lethal magic. But the key only opens the first door, leading him to the next clue.

Heroic greatness in women and men has come through hearing stories as children that teach and inspire while they amuse. Stories told by older siblings, elders, parents, or the wise men and women of the tribe. These stories entertained but also brought values and concepts of bravery, love and the meaning of life to young minds and forged the future of the race we call mankind.
More than ever today, in the blizzard of materialistic media's commercial cacophony, personal storytelling to the young is vital for the survival of the race. Humor, nonesense, satire, were all part of the stuff that shaped the minds of the young in The little Red Hen, The Cat in the Hat, The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland, and even the Harry Potter stories.
Iggy the Elf and the Islands follows in this tradition. It is best read aloud to young people with gusto and animation. But aduls might also appreciate some of the political fun-making.

Once, there was a land like no other. It was a city-state, a nation. The reach of its rulers sometimes spanned continents, and at other times reached no farther than the walls of a war-torn palace.
Giants lived in Mangrove -- powerful kings and generals who ruled all within their sight; and lands far beyond. And it gave birth to the least of us--powerless serfs and homeless orphans who begged for the smallest coins. In times of greatness its armies plundered far and wide, trampling everything and everyone before them. And in days of despair its soldiers died in vain defending the gates.
Its art and its technology and the skill of its wizards were unsurpassed. The books in its libraries and the men who put spells to parchment all burned together.
Mangrove lived and thrived and its people strode across the planet. Mangrove died and was forgotten and no one remembered much about it, unless it was in legends and tales told to frighten unruly children or to satisfy curious sages.
