|The Faerie Market from Stardust by Neil Gaiman |
Illustration by Charles Vess (awesome artist!)
Hello dearies, and welcome to the faerie market. Just a few things you need to know...
Take a banana with you. If you eat it before noon, it's like gold. If eaten before two, it's like silver. But after two, it has no power. You never know when you'll need one.
Do you agree? Yes?
Excellent! Here's what I need to know from you:
What is your favorite color?
Ah! Yes, a lovely choice, reminds me of a smell... thank you.
Very well; gold, banana, what else? Ah yes, something you already possess. Grasp tightly onto your imagination and enjoy the market my pretties.
Fear not the unexpected!
