Once upon a time, in a world called Children's Literature, there came into being a series of books that were unlike all the others inhabiting the land. Where the majority of books wore colorful coats and contained large, simple words, these particular books possessed coats that put far more stock in mystery than beauty, and possessed words that were slightly smaller and much more intelligent.
