    Some tales are told for gold; some for joy. But who would guess the ancient storyteller's purpose in beguiling the children of the bazaar with the strange story of Mustapha and His Wise Dog...Mustapha, young and clever, was outcast by his own brothers to wander in a dangerous land with only his magical, mischievous dog Elcoloq at his side. They were the unlikely warriors chosen by the gods to challenge the evil rising to threaten the world. They were the defiant ones willing to venture into the kingdom of powerful warlocks and seductive witches only to discover the fantastic journey yet awaiting them...a destiny of unforgettable adventure filled with dread demons and a treacherous awesome odyssey to a country of death, beauty...and a storyteller's secret.
