Melric and the Sorcerer

Publisher: Andersen Press

The king wants his magician, Melric, to make him more powerful but Melric keeps telling him that more power will not make him happier. Instead of listening, the King invites Sondrak the sorcerer over to see if he will help grant his wish. Melric soon realises that the sorcerer is up to no good - but how can he get rid of him without making the king angry?
