Byron the Elf: Time now for another visit with

S.L.: Hello, children! Today we're going to hear the story I call, "The Magic Suitcase."

(SFX: Music Box)

S.L.: Once upon a time, a traveler in a strange land far, far away, happened upon a wizard, who had fallen down into a ditch. The traveler helped the wizard from the ditch, and the wizard said to him, "Thank you, kind sir! I will give you a great gift, that will show my gratitude for your kindness before you return to your own land. Here is a magic suitcase. You have but to close the suitcase, and when you open it again, it will be filled with diamonds, rubies and emeralds."

The traveler took the suitcase, and when he opened it, it was indeed filled with precious jewels. And so he took the suitcase and headed back for his own land, filled with joy.

But he was arrested and thrown into jail when he tried to pass customs.

B: Thank you, Story Lady. Be listening next time, boys and girls, when The Story Lady tells us the tale of "The Whirling Dervish Whose Pants Fell Off."
