The Duchess of Whimsy was extravagant, lively, and the center of merrymaking. The Earl of Norm, on the other hand, was ordinary and serious. Why, then, did the Duchess invite such a boring person to the royal parties? It wasn't because she saw anything of interest in the plain man. The Duke, however, was fascinated by her wild dress, lively stories, and love of life, so he did what he could to make her notice him. Nothing worked until... well, can you guess what he did that did catch the attention of the Duchess of Whimsy?
Sometimes people are more than what they seem. The Duchess of Whimsy is the enchanting story of sparks that ignite a fire of friendship as extraordinary meets ordinary! Perhaps it will encourage YOU to look beneath the surface to find a friend in a stranger.
